Roy Williams: ‘We’ve got a chance to be really, really good’
North Carolina has added two new players to its 2018-19 basketball roster.
Ryan McAdoo, a Florida Gulf Coast transfer, and Caleb Ellis, a former JV player, will join the team, according to UNC basketball’s Twitter account.
McAdoo is the son of former Hall of Famer and Tar Heel Bob McAdoo. The elder McAdoo played at UNC from 1971-72, and was a five-time All-Star and won the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award in 1975.
Ryan McAdoo will have to sit out the 2018-19 season due to the NCAA’s transfer rules and will have three years of eligibility remaining.
As a freshman last year, McAdoo played limited minutes in 14 games at Florida Gulf Coast. He scored five points on the season.
Ellis is a junior from Apex.
