After three semesters at UNC, Womble, a red-shirt sophomore, became academically ineligible and transferred to Hutchinson (Kan.) CC. He was informed in October that he cleared UNC admissions.
"Academically, everything is fine," Womble said. "It's just that I was at Carolina once and maybe this is a chance for me to go somewhere else and start off new."
Womble is in the early stages of his re-recruitment. However, he says schools that have inquired about him include Alabama, LSU, and Oregon.
"Even if I don't go back to North Carolina, I'm going to be a Tar Heel until the day I die," Womble said.
Womble plans to take official visits and then enroll at his chosen school in January.
"I'm just going to take it day by day," Womble said.
