UNC Basketball: Former Tar Heel Kerwin Walton has committed to Texas Tech

Even though Hubert Davis had basically shrunk the rotation to six players by the end of the season, there were good vibes about the Tar Heels around the NBA Draft deadline as it appeared that Carolina wasn’t going to have to scramble with losses in the roster. This was particularly surprising when Kerwin Walton appeared to be staying.

To say his sophomore season was a disappointment is an understatement. Walton came into the 2021-22 year as Carolina’s best shooter from the prior season and had seemed poised for a breakout when the new coach was trying to figure out who he would rely on.
