The summer-long saga has come to an end. According to sources close to the situation, Michael Copeland is now enrolled at North Carolina.
The 6-7 power forward from Winston-Salem (N.C.) Reynolds learned on Sunday that he had received A's on his final two summer courses. After faxing the results to UNC, Copeland was in Chapel Hill to meet with Roy Williams on Wednesday and on Thursday began orientation classes.
There will be no press conference to announce the developments.
Copeland, who averaged 17.8 points and 9.1 rebounds as a senior at Reynolds, earned Player of the Year honors for the Central Piedmont 4A Conference his senior season, and was selected to the All-Northwest N.C. team. He was named to the All-State Second Team by two separate outlets - the Associated Press and NCPrepReport.com.
