UNC Basketball’s Simeon Wilcher Named to Under Armor Elite 24 Event


UNC basketball commit Simeon Wilcher will participate in the Under Armor Elite 24 Event on Friday, August 12.

Simeon Wilcher (UNC Basketball class of 2023 verbal commit) has been named to the UA NEXT Elite 24 event as part of the Team FUTR squad.

Under Armor brings together 24 of the best male and female high school basketball players in the country for the event taking place this upcoming Friday, August 12 at Chicago’s Northerly Island.

The event, which started in 2006, is back for the first time since 2016.

Wilcher and the 23 other young men will play at 7:00 pm ET, preceded by the inaugural women’s game at 5:00 pm and a skills competition in between. Both games will be televised on ESPNU.

Opposing Wilcher on Team Havoc are four Carolina class of 2024 targets, all of whom hold scholarship offers from Hubert Davis. That group consists of five-star point guards Elliot Cadeau and Boogie Fland (same high school as RJ Davis), along with five-star shooting guards Ian Jackson and Tre Johnson. Additionally participating on Team Havoc is previously hoped for target Matas Buzelis, who is headed to the G-League Ignite program.

Per Under Armor Communications, six former participants in the event have gone on to be selected No. 1 overall in the NBA Draft: John Wall (2010), Kyrie Irving (2011), Anthony Bennett (2013), Markelle Fultz (2017), DeAndre Ayton (2018), and Zion Williamson (2019).

Additionally, 20 total UA Elite 24 participants have been taken in the top five of the NBA Draft, with 106 total players being drafted.

25 former participants have eventually been named AP All-Americans at some point in their college careers.

Make sure to note that Class of 2023 point guard commit Reniya Kelly will be participating in the women’s game for Team Breakthrough.
