Hughes Delays Enrollment

Mike Hughes has decided to postpone his enrollment to North Carolina.

According to a source close to Hughes's family, the 5-foot-10, 180-pound athlete from New Bern (N.C.) delayed his enrollment to the first summer semester for "personal reasons."

Hughes had originally planned to enroll in the spring semester. He actually moved onto campus -- like other midterm enrollees -- in early January to do so, but returned to New Bern about a week later.

The source said that Hughes's commitment to UNC remains firm. He has visited campus every weekend this month to spend time with his future teammates.

Hughes committed to UNC on Dec. 22 over finalists Florida and NC State.
