Reggie Bullock is moving on to the next level, and Tar Heel Nation sheds a single tear. Bullock will be testing the draft waters this summer and here’s hoping that works out for him. Bullock’s defensive intensity and three point shooting will be missed in Chapel Hill.
Bullock had “a great experience” there but he’s “ready to take the next step in my career. We did some great things that have prepared me to play in the NBA,” Bullock said. “I know the Tar Heels will have a great year next season.”
Bullock averaged 13.9 points and 6.5 rebounds this year and was deadly when he was shooting 44 percent on 3-pointers. He is not projected above the second round, but his stock probably would not have gone any higher with a another year in college.
“Our hope is that his decision will work out in a very positive manner for Reggie,” coach Roy Williams said. “He has big dreams and we will help him and support him in his efforts to reach those dreams. I’ll always enjoy reflecting on Reggie’s three seasons as a big part of our program.”
Bullock’s presence will be missed and he will make it on to a pro roster one day soon. He shoots too well and plays too hard to not get there one day.
