Top transfer target Matthew Mayer has officially made his decision and it’s not good news for the UNC basketball program. Just hours after Inside Carolina reported that Mayer was set to make his decision within the week, it didn’t take long.
Mayer announced via his Instagram that he was transferring to Illinois, ending his recruitment. The news is disappointing for North Carolina, as they have an open spot following Kerwin Walton’s announcement that he’s transferring.
Now, UNC will have to find another solution whether that’s the portal or giving their open spot to Puff Johnson in the starting lineup.
