WBB: Diamond Deshields to UNC

The "Fab Five" -- Michigan's 1991 men's basketball recruiting class -- is considered by many the greatest class ever recruited. Two decades later, a trio of high school players is plotting to take the women's game by similar storm.

On Saturday, three of the top 20 players in the 2013 class -- No. 3 Diamond DeShields, No. 15 Stephanie Mavunga and No. 18 Jessica Washington -- dialed North Carolina coach Sylvia Hatchell and dropped a bombshell on the coach who just finished her 26th year at the helm of the Tar Heels.


But both DeShields and Mavunga had more work to do to bring Phase II of their master plan to fruition. DeShields' fellow Peach State star -- 6-foot guard Allisha Gray of Sandersville, Ga., also committed on Saturday. The sharpshooter is the No. 8 prospect in the 2013 class. Mavunga plans to lean on her close friend Mercedes Russell, a 6-5 post from Springfield, Ore., who is the top-ranked player in the class.

Diamond was one of our top recruits for 2013. Carolina has assembled a very good class. Obviously the better the other teams in the ACC are, then stronger to RPI we have. We are still going after Ronni Williams, the #3 Wing and Alexandra Harris, the #8 Post player.
