Roster rumblings continues to fly around UNC Basketball program

The news of Walker Kessler entering the transfer portal may have shook the ACC basketball universe; however, this could be just the start of a busy few months for UNC basketball.

An unprecedented offseason for college basketball is about to mix with the uneven nature of North Carolina’s 2020-21 season. So far, early indication seem to forecast a shifting horizon for Roy Williams and the Tar Heels.

This started immediately after UNC lost to Wisconsin last Friday in the NCAA Tournament. Following the game, senior forward/center Garrison Brooks floated the possibility of playing at another program next season.

Currently, Brooks has a lot of options. He could return to UNC for his “super senior” season, due to the COVID-19 eligibility rules put in place by the NCAA. Brooks could transfer to another program. Or he could go pro.

(Brooks isn’t an NBA prospect, but he’s a solid player. With proper scouting, he could turn up on a good team in Europe.)

Once the news of Kessler went public, several parents of UNC basketball players took to Twitter, while offering up a handful of cryptic tweets. This started with point guard Caleb Love’s father.

Not long after those tweets went up, Armando Bacot’s father added his own thoughts: “CHANGE IS EVERYTHING.”

On the surface, these tweets mean very little. However, in conjunction with Kessler’s decision, there seems to be more here. That notion is certainly supported by what Quierra Luck is reporting. According to Luck, there’s more to come.
