Bullock to skip senior year, enter NBA

Posted April 16, 2013

— After a junior season in which he averaged 13.9 points per game in 35 starts, University of North Carolina guard Reggie Bullock will forego his senior year and enter the NBA Draft, the school confirmed Tuesday.

"It's been a great experience at Carolina and after talking to my family, the coaches and my inner circle of friends, I am ready to take the next step in my career," Bullock said in a statement. "I want to play at the next level and will put my name in the NBA Draft this year. I want to thank all of my coaches, teammates and the Carolina fans for their support these past three years. We did some great things that have prepared me to play in the NBA."

UNC guard PJ Hairston, who last week announced that he will stay at the school for his junior year, took to twitter Tuesday applauding Bullock’s decision.

“Some things are just meant to be at a certain time for certain people..,” Hairston stated. “With that being said, congrats to my bro @DaBully35 (Bullock) still my brother for life regardless. Follow your dream fam!”

Former guard Kendall Marshall also joined in the congratulations saying on twitter, “SO excited for @DaBully35 being able to follow his dream. #5304 been waitin on you! Let the journey begin.”

Even foes from NC State chimed in with encouragement as TJ Warren offered, "Congrats my boy! Thank GOD every chance you get!"

Bullock, a Kinston native, played in 100 games as a Tar Heel, finishing his career 11 points shy of 1,000. His 188 three-pointers place him eighth among UNC players all time.

The 6-foot-7 Bullock was awarded first-team all-ACC Tournament honors after averaging 14.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. He carried that over into the NCAA tournament where he had 15 points and four assists in a win over Villanova.

"Reggie is such an outstanding young man and a talented basketball player," head coach Roy Williams said. "He was our most consistent player this season, was productive on both ends of the floor and gave us great leadership. Our hope is that his decision will work out in a very positive manner for Reggie. 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 career highlight came in a win this past season against Maryland when he scored a personal-best 24 points – 21 of which came in he first half. He started all but one game for UNC as a junior, missing the UNLV game after suffering a concussion in practice following a collision with James Michael McAdoo.

With Hairston announcing his commitment to stay and Bullock confirmed to be leaving, Williams now awaits the decision from McAdoo. The 6-foot-9 sophomore was second on the team in scoring last season for a Tar Heels team that went 25-11 overall and 12-6 in ACC play.

    Good player...but not ready for the NBA..he still has time to change his mind before ending up in Yugoslavia or Spain..

    You got that right, but at least us Newport idjits don't need the whole bunch of alumni/donors to hire professors to do all the class work for us. Heck, you know the players don't even know where their classrooms are. If us idjits from Newport fail we did it ourselves. Not because little Johnny couldn't read and Mrs. Hasbeen was paying off the whole dang school.

    I think it's refreshing that there is actually an adult conversation going on here. Sure beats the usual garbage.

    TBK, what you suggested - paying the players - is probably going on behind closed doors anyway. May as well bring it out in the open. It would be tough to make it a level playing field, but is it really level now?

    The cynical side of me thinks we're much closer to what I described than any of us care to admit.

    If what you describe were to be put in place... as I am now with the NBA - I would cease to be an intercollegiate sports "fan".

    "Agree with JGunn regarding your response, TBK. You did make very good, well thought out points."

    "You hit the nail right on the academic head on that, TBK."

    Hey thanks, man!

    Although, I admit part of me would miss the great college athletics. Maybe we should just let colleges BE a true farm system. Athletics could be completely separated from academics. Don't even require them to attend the school, but certainly encourage it if they want to. Let it be a money-maker for the schools, and let them pay the players. Forget about the student-athlete. Just give in, and call it a business. Sure, some would do better than others. But this is America, and the best in their field can and should have the option of going where the pay is best. We could always cap it at some reasonable number. Just a crazy thought. I have those once in a while. :)
