North Carolina basketball roster departures 

North Carolina brings back an All-American in RJ Davis, but it also loses one of the most accomplished players in school history. Big man Armando Davis used the remainder of his eligibility last season, averaging 14.5 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. He posted double-doubles in five of his final six games, finishing his career as the school's all-time leader in double-doubles and rebounds.

The Tar Heels are also expected to lose forward Harrison Ingram, who declared for the NBA draft after averaging 12.2 points and 8.8 rebounds. He technically can withdraw his name from the draft by the end of the month and retain his eligibility, but he has already cleared out his locker. Double-digit scorer Cormac Ryan is also departing after playing his fifth season of college basketball. Join Inside Carolina to see the latest on all of North Carolina's roster changes

North Carolina basketball news, roster

With only a handful of players departing, head coach Hubert Davis and his staff only had a handful of available scholarships to work with. Despite only signing three high school recruits, Davis still managed to put together the ninth-ranked recruiting class in the country, according to 247Sports. The Heels also added former Belmont small forward Cade Tyson, a four-star transfer prospect.

The incoming talent is headlined by a pair of five-star high school signees, shooting guard Ian Jackson and small forward Drake Powell. Jackson, ranked as the No. 9 overall prospect in the country, is an explosive 6-foot-5 guard who has the ability to be an instant impact player on the defensive end of the court. Powell, the No. 10 overall prospect in the country, is also athletic and capable of making an impact on both ends of the court from Day One in Chapel Hill. Join Inside Carolina to get the latest on all of North Carolina's roster additions
