Brown Bears graduate transfer Paxson Wojcik has announced that he is transferring to the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Tar Heels have had six players enter the transfer portal this offseason and have had to hit the portal hard themselves. Wojcik had to enter the transfer portal this off-season or not play basketball again. The Ivy League does not permit players that are graduates to play sports with their programs. Several schools reached out to the Brown transfer, but he committed to North Carolina after visiting the campus and program.
