Ed Davis has announced his decision to return to North Carolina.
"(I) will not apply for the NBA Draft," Davis said via a statement released by the school on Sunday. "I love being a student at Carolina and playing with my teammates for Coach (Roy) Williams. I'd like to play in the NBA someday, but my family and I don't think I'm ready to take that step."
Davis averaged 6.7 points and 6.6 rebounds coming off the bench this season.
The 6-foot-10 forward would've likely been a lottery pick had he entered the NBA Draft.
"We are ecstatic with Ed's and his family's decision to remain at North Carolina," Williams said. "I truly enjoy coaching him. We always try to recommend what is best for each individual young man. Ed's family and I did discuss his options after the season and we are happy that he will continue to be a Tar Heel."
