So, was there anything that North Carolina did that pushed Thompson away?
"[Gunter Brewer] left the program so that bothered me a little bit," he said. "I loved the rest of the coaching staff at North Carolina."
Thompson down played UNC's depth chart as a deciding factor.
"Well, Cameron Sexton and I were more or less even," Thompson said. "But with him being an in-state guy, I thought maybe the fans would pull for him a little more."
He does not plan to visit North Carolina this weekend as he had previously scheduled.
