Cam Johnson Released, Eligible to Play for UNC this Season



The Cam Johnson saga is over for Pitt as the highly sought after transfer was granted a full release by Kevin Stallings and the Panthers, according to his father.

Johnson, who has two years of eligibility remaining, chose to transfer in-conference to North Carolina. Kevin Stallings and Pitt initially decided to block Johnson from playing this year. But with a sea of negative buzz from the media, in particular Duke alum Jay Bilas, who took to twitter to blast the Panthers over their decision, Stallings decided to allow Johnson to transfer and play this year for Roy Williams’ defending National Champion Tar Heels.

Johnson averaged 11.9 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and shot 42 percent from 3-point for the Panthers last year. His shooting touch and two years of eligibility made him a top-5 player on the transfer market.
