Pitt's Cam Johnson To Visit North Carolina On Monday

The Tar Heels will be hosting one of the top graduate transfers in the country on Monday.

North Carolina will be hosting an elite graduate transfer next week.

According to CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein, the Tar Heels will be receiving a visit from Pittsburgh transfer guard Cam Johnson.

Johnson is set to visit UNC on Monday, per the report.

Johnson's recruitment as a graduate transfer has received a lot of attention over the last week.

The sharp-shooting guard has already graduated and has two seasons of eligibility remaining. As a grad transfer, he should be able to play right away at another school. But Pittsburgh has placed restrictions on his transfer, saying he'll have to sit out the 2017-18 season if he goes to an ACC school.

North Carolina is the only ACC school he appears to be considering, but the Tar Heels might be his No. 1 destination, so many are pressuring Pitt to take away the restrictions.

Johnson was a 40 percent 3-point shooter last season, averaging 12 points a game.
