    North Carolina on Sunday added a high-scoring Belmont transfer Cade Tyson.

    The 6-foot-7 North Carolina native averaged 16.2 points and 5.9 rebounds as a sophomore.

    “[I chose] North Carolina because I felt like that is where God was leading me,” Tyson told ZAGSBLOG.

    “I feel that I can really shoot it and I also think I am pretty competitive which will be something I bring to the squad as well.”

    The Tar Heels are also returning R.J. Davis, Seth Trimble and Elliot Cadeau in the backcourt, while they bring in five-star New York City shooting guard Ian Jackson and five-star North Carolina wing Drake Powell.

    North Carolina will also host Rutgers transfer big man Cliff Omoruyi on Tuesday. The 6-11 big man averaged 10.4 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.9 blocks this past season.
