North Carolina is one of the many schools taking time this month to observe Milton High 6-foot-8 swingman Evan Nolte, one of the top junior basketball players in Georgia.
Nolte led his AAU team, the Southern Kings, to the championship of a Mytle Beach, S.C., tournament. He scored 27 points in the first half of the semifinals, finishing with 34. In the championship game, Nolte scored 24 to help the Kings win the Under-16 tournament.
Nolte already has around a dozen offers, including Georgia Tech and UGA. Schools such as North Carolina, Duke, Florida and Stanford are evaluating him this month in the various regional and national AAU tournaments.
