Cam Johnson Granted Full Release From Pitt, Will Play For UNC In 2017-18

Cam Johnson will not miss the 2017-18 season.

The drama surrounding Cam Johnson's transfer from Pitt to North Carolina has finally been resolved. After blocking Johnson's transfer to the Tar Heels, Pitt has now granted a full transfer to the star guard.

Johnson will be able to play immediately for UNC.

Johnson visited the Tar Heels last week. The trip must have gone well, as Johnson announced his commitment to Roy Williams and company on Tuesday.

He averaged 12 points a game and shot 40 percent from the 3-point line last season. Johnson also considered, Arizona, Kentucky, and UCLA, among others.
