UNC Basketball continues to search for a starting center after missing out on transfer portal target Danny Wolf, who committed to Michigan despite initial interest from UNC. Wolf, a 7-foot, 250-pound First Team All-Ivy League selection, chose Michigan over UNC despite earlier communication with both schools. With Wolf off the table, UNC now awaits decisions from Tennessee's Jonas Aidoo and Rutgers' Clifford Omoruyi, who are still considering the Tar Heels. Four post players on UNC's radar have now committed elsewhere, signaling ongoing challenges in securing a new starting center.

By the Numbers
  • Wolf is ranked No. 19 overall on the 247Sports transfer rankings.
  • UNC's former starter, Armando Bacot, has exhausted his eligibility.
Yes, But

UNC still has opportunities with Aidoo and Omoruyi, who are considering the program, indicating potential for a big man addition in the future.

State of Play
  • UNC is actively pursuing a starting center in the transfer portal.
  • Two big men, Aidoo and Omoruyi, remain in consideration by UNC.
What's Next

UNC will continue its search for a starting center and may focus on securing commitments from Aidoo or Omoruyi to fill the gap in the roster.

Bottom Line

UNC faces challenges in recruiting a new starting center from the transfer portal but still has opportunities with remaining prospects to strengthen the team's frontcourt.
