CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WNCN) – North Carolina junior Seventh Woods will not wear a Tar Heel jersey next year.
Woods posted to Instagram Thursday announcing that he is leaving the Tar Heels program.
The former top-50 recruit said he will finish his “academic and basketball career elsewhere.”
“Two regular season championships, a National Championship and group of brothers that I would cherish for life,” Woods said. “I wouldn’t go back and change any decision I’ve made but I do feel like it’s time for a change…”
His announcement comes just days after elite point guard Cole Anthony signed to play for Roy Williams in Chapel Hill next year.
Woods played backup to freshman Coby White last year.
My three years here at UNC has been nothing short of amazing. Two regular season championships, a National Championship and group of brothers that I would cherish for life. I wouldn’t go back and change any decision I’ve made but I do feel like it’s time for a change, with that being said I plan on finishing my academic and basketball career elsewhere. To the coaches, thank you so much for giving me an opportunity and helping me grow as a player and a man. To my teammates…. y’all know what’s up 😢 I love y’all forever and will always cherish what we have been through and accomplished as a group. To any and everyone who has help me overcome the struggles throughout my college career, I am forever thankful. I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and the best is yet to come ! – The pain you have been feeling, can’t compare to the JOY that is coming” 🖤✌🏾
