This is getting ridiculous...nothing is 100% until he signs.
Most of my UNC friends don't feel very positive about Austin at all. I think they had a slight bump in optimism lately, a very few actually even feel good about their chances. The rest seem to be conceding him to us. A good number of them seem perplexed as to why Williams is recruiting him since they don't think they have a realistic chance and they are fairly deep in the backcourt now (including commits). I don't believe those thinking that last bit realize how good Austin is.
The thing that makes me the most nervous is how good I actually feel about this one. Not getting him, at this point, would be more disappointing than the Barnes decision.

The mood over there isn't "less enthusiastic". Its way more! Cody Zeller received 2 visits last week. Some think he is the key to next years team. Also, Roy has visited SM in Vegas recently and everyone is stoked on that. Roy also flew to Conn. to see Drummond. He looks to be a UCONN lock at the moment, but with impending sanctions yet to be handed down, who knows. Lots of stuff going on over on the IC that doesn't revolve around AR.
As you can plainly see, there isn't much going on here that doesn't involve AR.
I can also see why it is good for unc that ol' roy is so full of it, because he seems to be spreading it pretty thick and over a good part of the country.
Don't take this the wrong way, but to Kong, Zeller the key? I know that they are long and skinny enough to fit into most doors, but I haven't seen anything about his older brother after two years to consider him that important. Even our beloved Plumlees were not stars out of the gate. Like I say, I am not trying to be insulting (just joking a little), but I am not insane about MP3's immediate impact as a freshman. For the same reason, it just seems like that may be reaching, right? Do you consider him that big to you guys?
