Saying he is in the early stages of my life journey, North Carolina freshman Harrison Barnes announced today he wants to continue that journey in college and not, right now, the NBA.
Im honored and blessed for the chance to play in the NBA, the ACC Rookie of the Year said in a prepared statement. And because of my family, teachers, passion, and work, I have the ultimate dream of one day playing and experiencing a fulfilling career in the NBA.
Opportunities, both beneficial and life changing, can seem to make the next phase of my journey an easy decision. But I am a student-athlete at the University of North Carolina. Im here to experience college life, grow as a person, receive a quality education, and be part of the greatest basketball family in college sports.
