Alabama's Justin Knox will transfer to North Carolina and be eligible to play next season if he finishes his undergraduate degree this summer. Upon graduation, the 6-foot-9 forward will need only to select a graduate program at North Carolina not offered at Alabama to gain immediate eligibility in the ACC.

Knox averaged 6.3 points and 3.7 rebounds in 19.8 minutes per game last season.

His presence will be a boost for North Carolina given that the Tar Heels only have two other post players (Tyler Zeller and John Henson) scheduled to be on next season's roster thanks to one player (Ed Davis) leaving school early and two others (David Wear and Travis Wear) choosing to transfer. Knox initially wanted to transfer to UAB, but Alabama would not release the in-state product to the in-state school.

Alabama's Knox to play at UNC next season

Good luck to the kid is all I can say. Very interesting he couldn't go to UAB, I seriously believe UA basketball program is terrified of UAB's basketball progam won't play them reguarly or anything. The move to the ACC should be good for baby "Superman" allah Dwight Howard we called him the last two years.He has potential just has to be on the floor to show it, an more uptempo stlye in Chapel Hill should help him, with no one there too basically hold him back plenty of minutes could have the NBA calling too bad for us we can't keep a kid that was homegrown right outta T-Town. Hopefully though Anthony Grant can keep our best kids from leaving the state and find a couple of gems like his asst. coach Antoine Pettway and we should be fine. This opens up the frontcourt for what i think will be Alabama's best frontcourt in years since Melvin Cheatum, Robert Horry, Jason Caffey and Antonio Mc Dyess were coming threw the capstone. Roll Tide!!!!
