On a different front, UNC basketball player Brian Morrison announced Monday that he will transfer from the program. Morrison averaged 7.1 points in his final season in a Carolina uniform.
A Redmond, Washington native, Morrison was heavily recruited to attend Wake Forest by Coach Dave Odom when he coached at Wake. Morrison and another UNC transfer, Neil Fingleton, both chose UNC over Wake Forest that year.
