There has been a lot of buzz about UNC's future from the transfer portal decisions, who's going to the draft, and who's returning. We know the news about Harrison Ingram, Seth Trimble, and ACC Player of the Year RJ Davis for the 2024-2025 season. This era of college basketball serves a ton of chaos, considering how easy it is for players to up and leave their current school.

Harrison Ingram

As much as UNC fans love Ingram's game and what he was able to do in just one season as a Tar Heel, he decided to enter this upcoming NBA draft, per his tweet on X (formerly Twitter).

"Throughout my life, playing in the NBA has always been a main dream of mine, and with that, I am excited to announce that I am officially declaring for the 2024 NBA Draft," his message said.

The versatile four-man began his career at Stanford before entering the portal and joining Carolina this past year. His contributions were tremendous on North Carolina's road to becoming a No. 1 seed in the big dance. On top of helping the Heels win the ACC regular-season championship by beating Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Ingram completed the season averaging 12.2 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 2.2 assists, in addition to 43 percent from the field. An absolute stellar scorer who can play on the inside and stretch the floor beyond the arc.

However, after not initially mentioning it, Ingram will maintain his eligibility, opening the door for a return to UNC-Chapel Hill.

We'll have time to pass and see what's in store for the Texas native.
