Three University of North Carolina prospects will test the draft waters, the school announced today in a press release. According to UNC, juniors Joel Berry II and Theo Pinson are entering the draft without representation. The Tar Heels also confirmed that freshman center Tony Bradley is testing the draft waters, as had been previously reported.


Of the three players, Bradley is viewed as the one with the highest upside, but Berry and Pinson are also both solid prospects who played major roles in this yearís championship run. Berry is ranked 86th on DraftExpressí big board, and comes in even higher on Chad Fordís board at ESPN, placing 64th. The junior point guard, who turned 22 this month, isnít considered an elite prospect, but is a solid pure point guard who sees the floor very well, says Ford.

As for Pinson, he comes in at No. 66 on Fordís big board, though he doesnít earn a spot in DraftExpressí top 100. The 6í6″ small forward averaged a modest 6.1 PPG, 4.6 RPG, and 3.7 APG during his junior year, and struggled with his shot, making just 38.1% of his field goal attempts, including 23.7% from three-point range.

In addition to Berry, Pinson, and Bradley, UNCís Justin Jackson has also declared for the draft ó he intends to keep his name in the draft pool and wonít be back with North Carolina next season.
