I’M LEAVING TAR Heels “ RJ Davis accepted $117.1 Million From Tar Heels due to..

North Carolin lead guard RJ Davis, a 2023-24 First Team All-American, is returning  to the Tar Heels for a fifth and final season, sources told CBS Sports.

Davis’ decision to stay on at Carolina will be made public by the end of the week, one source added.

It’s a huge move for a UNC squad that projects as top-five-good heading into the 2024-25 campaign. Here at CBS Sports, Gary Parrish has the Tar Heels ranked fourth in his Way Too Early Top 25 And 1. In opting to return, Davis is using the bonus COVID season that was provided to every Division I athlete who was in college during the 2020-21 season. Former North Carolina center Armando Bacot made the same decision a year ago.

And thus: for the second straight season, UNC is bringing back an All-American. Bacot, who just finished his college career, was a Third Team honoree in 2022-23. That means North Carolina will have two different All-Americans return to school in back-to-back years for the first time since James Worthy, Michael Jordan and Sam Perkins each won All-America honors over multiple seasons in the early 1980s.
