·1 min read

Former UNC basketball point guard Jeremiah Francis has found a new home after two seasons at New Mexico. Francis announced his commitment to Division II Emmanuel College on Friday.

Francis, who spent one season at North Carolina in 2019-20, averaged 3.3 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists during that season.

During his two years at New Mexico, Francis averaged 4.7 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game in 17.2 minutes per game. He played in 33 games and 12 starts.

His best season was his first in New Mexico. He started 11 games, averaging 6.4 points and 2.2 assist per game.

Last season, Francis averaged just 7.7 minutes per game in 12 appearances.

Emmanuel College is a private Christian college in Georgia. The Lions went 19-9 last year and lost in their conference tournament semifinal.

Francis was once a four-star recruit but after missing two straight years to end his high school career with knee injuries, he finished No. 179 overall in the 247Sports 2019 class.
