Wear twins reportedly transferring from UNC

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.

Calipari involved ??

There is a rumor in Lexington that the twins are interested in upgrading to Kentucky next season. Not sure if Cal can find the roster spots, but they might be able to help our team GPA !!

Wear twins reportedly transferring from UNC

This is pretty big for UNC.

With Ed Davis not returning and Deon Thompson graduating, this leaves UNC with only Henson and Zeller inside.

Harrison Barnes is a 3, Reggie Bullock is a 2, and Kendall Marshall is a 1.

Unless Roy can convince these two kids to stay or pull off something big with an unsigned recruit (maybe Terrence Jones will back out of his UW commitment) it will be another long year for Tar Heel fans.
