Green, Ellington and Lawson set to return

Updated as of 6:oopm: Ty Lawson has announced he will also stay at UNC for another year. I am ecstatic, and it makes this next seasons team by far the top ranked team in the land. I could see them losing less than two games all season. He will join Wayne Ellington, Danny Green and Tyler Hansbrough as the backbone of this North Carolina club, who will only lose Quentin Thomas and Surry Wood off last seasons roster. Other players announcing they will not enter the draft are Texas' A.J. Abrams, Memphis' Robert Dozier, UAB's Robert Vaden, Jannero Pargo's younger brother from Gonzaga Jeremy Pargo and Alabama guard Ronald Steele.

Yeah, once again something I wrote came true. Both Wayne Ellington and Danny Green will be coming back for another season at UNC. No word yet on Ty Lawson, but I'm expecting him to go after having decent camps. Should be interesting to see where Carolina is ranked now. I'm guessing they should be at the top in the first polls. Definitely a huge win for a program that is almost always towards the top. The deadline for players to undeclare for the draft is 5pm, it will be interesting to see how many other players pull out after learning they won't go in the first round.
