Former McDonald's All-Americans David and Travis Wear are transferring from North Carolina and hoping to get their releases "as early as Thursday," the players' father, Dave Wear, told Frank Burlison of the Long Bech Press-Telegram.

"When they return home (to Huntington Beach, Calif.), we will sit down as a family and review their basketball and academic options," said Dave Wear. "... They decided they didn't want to return to North Carolina."

David Wear averaged 10.5 minutes per game this season while Travis Wear averaged 10.3.

The departures leave UNC with just two experienced players who are taller than 6-feet-4 (Tyler Zeller and Jon Henson) on next season's roster. The Tar Heels' three-player recruiting class does not include any power forwards or centers.

Wear twins reportedly transferring from UNC- stay

Wear twins could stay in the ACC as the Terps have scholarship room and would love to have them.

What a team that would be with J Williams. Mosely, and all the talented PGs coming in.

Where for the wears?  Try calling up gary Williams in College park!!

Good luck to wherever they go.

I think the transfer has more to do with personal (perhaps family) matters. Neither player appears to be destined for the NBA and I don't see how the twins' could miss how their pt would increase this season at NC. As a Bruin fan, I hope they deside to come to UCLA.

Wear twins reportedly transferring from UNC

"We've gotten into this situation where integrity is really lacking and that's why I'm glad I'm not coaching," Bob Knight said. "You see we've got a coach at Kentucky who put two schools on probation and he's still coaching. I really don't understand that."

The guy who beats his kids in public and has the nerve to even speak on downgrading the game and losing integrity.  Plus he is a racist announcer on ESPN commentating on a game dominated by black people.  He should have just said what was in his heart "I dont like the game anymore b/c there is so few Cole Aldrich's."  He is one of the most racist people I have ever heard get to speak live on TV.  He makes references about the white kids all game, every game.  There was one KU game where he said they should bring in Morningstar for collins b/c morningstar was a better more fundamentally sound player.  Get the F outta here

Wear twins reportedly transferring from UNC

Didn't Memphis have to vacate 38 wins accumulated during the 2007-2008 season (under Calipari)? Didnt a very similar SAT problem happen with Maggette back in 1999, but got swept under the rug b/c it was coach K?

All coaches would have played ROSE after NCAA cleared him to play, just like K played Maggette.

I have never seen so many douche bags.  Find something else to talk about, or knock our current team.  We dont have a power forward right now, talk about that.  Talk about how Cal missed on both power forwards and recruiting so many elite level players may bite us in the @$$ b/c they all left.  But get over the coaching stuff.  Talk about problems we have now if you want to talk bad about UK, not sanctions that you think will show up 8 years from now.

And as I have said on many threads, all of you on hear talking trash about how shady recruiting never played college sports or at least not at a high level.  Because if you did you would know that all coaches are the same, they all will find the best angle to improve their position.  They will go to church and praise the lord if that is the type family you have to get an edge.  I think the thing I hate the most is about cal paying players, that has never even been a thought to have happened anywhere.  Camby took money from an agent, CAL REPORTED THE VIOLATION.  He turned it in, obviously he was not part of it.

Everyone show some class, bash all you want to but bash what is actually going on with last years team or our teams of the future and leave your thoughts of what may happen 10 years down the road to yourself.  I cant believe people are that bitter about a coach leaving.

Anytime you lose 2 big men role players or not it hurts. They now have only 2 guys that can play the 4 or 5. What do you do when they get in foul trouble, what do you do if one of the gets hurt, I mean Zeller has yet to play a full season. I truly thought Carolina was going to be back this year but its going to be tough with the lack of depth in the front court. They will probably play a lot of three gaurd Line ups with Barnes playing the four, and Bullock playing the 3, Bullock is very long at 6'6". But they will struggle against  wi
th Big teams with dominant big men, Henson in only like 190, he is an exceptional shot blocker, but because of his lack of size he will get pushed around a lot.

I think we all agree...

Wear twins leaving is no big deal for the Tar Heels.

They still have what it takes to go deep in the NIT.

These guys are penciled in as starters for the Heels next year so what the hell is going on in Chapel Hill??Uh, no they're not. Zeller, Henson, Graves, Barnes, Drew (unfortunately). They would have been roll players again and getting more minutes than they probably should because of lack of depth. Its a tough loss for a team with little frontcourt help but lets not make it more than it is
