Agreed. UNC is bringing in 5 guards this recruiting class, including a 5*, a 4* and a 3* recruit. Pierce is a good mid-major player, but it is hard to see him beating out those guys for playing time.

Not so much at the 3/4 though. Cole Anthony, Christian Keeling, Garrison Brooks and Armando Bacot are pretty sure to start at the 1, 2, 4 and 5. They may play Leaky Black or Brandon Robinson at the 3 but those guys are gonna be wild cards. They don't really have any true wings who can move across the 3/4, and I would assume he has the inside track of a starting role. It's possible he doesn't, but even if that's the case, I'd be very surprised if he weren't getting 18-20 MPG.

Perhaps from your perspective it won't be so great, but with his stated goals of working in an NBA front office (I'd imagine the network for this chosen career path is a little better at UNC than WM) and getting an MBA (USNews ranks the UNC/Kenan-Flagler business school #19 while WM/Mason school is #54 - both are excellent programs) and the opportunity to be a member of an elite program that's almost always a lock to play in the NCAAT...I'd guess JP is thinking it's pretty dang great right about now, even if he doesn't start or get the same minutes he did with WM.

Oh, and that dumpster fire in Williamsburg.

Yeah, it's pretty dang great.

RE: Justin Pierce Gone
Happy for Justin. Also, shows confidence to have that post wearing a 23 Carolina jersey. Will be pulling for him and for Matt next year. Nice chance for him. Plus, he will have some Carolina experience just like his coaches did. We will never know if he might have come back if we stayed with Coach Shaver and Coach Holmes. But, he played awfully hard last year toward the end of the season for the coaches and his team, even returning to the game at JMU following a nasty tackle from behind. I hope he gets to the Final four with his teammates(even though fairness would have UNC suspended from the tourney for multiple years for the academic fraud they committed in the past).

FWIW I think UNC has all their recruits wear 23 for photos when they visit.

RE: Justin Pierce Gone
“We’re very excited to have Christian and Justin join our program. They are both outstanding students who can be tremendous additions to our team,” says UNC head coach Roy Williams.....
Justin has done a great job in the classroom and is looking forward to studying in our business program at Carolina."

Best wishes to Justin, but did Williams really go after Pierce for his one year contribution on the court, or to help pad the team gpa, so, his incoming one and dones can walk through their catered classes ??
