Wilcher’s decision comes just 1 week after 5-star guard Elliot Cadeau opted to re-classify into the 2023 recruiting class. Cadeau is expected to slot into the Tar Heels’ starting lineup next season alongside returning guard RJ Davis.
Still, it’s a big loss for the Tar Heels. He was ranked as the No. 34 overall player and the No. 7 combo guard in the country, per 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s also the No. 4 player from the state of New Jersey.
North Carolina projects to have plenty of guard talent next season. The Tar Heels return Davis and Seth Trimble from last year’s team. They’ve also added Cormac Ryan and Paxon Wojcik via the transfer portal.
