The depletion of Carolina’s front court is ongoing as reserve forward Walker Miller has entered the ever growing transfer portal. While Miller hasn’t had a huge role in his time in Chapel Hill, this does away a potential depth piece for next season. Miller joins Walker Kessler, Day’Ron Sharpe and Sterling Manley as post players that left the UNC program, either by entering the aforementioned transfer portal, or going off to the NBA. With Miller’s decision to transfer, that leaves just Armando Bacot as the only potential big man to return for the 2021-22 season, as we’re still awaiting to learn if Garrison Brooks will return for his super senior season, or transfer to another program.
Miller is a career 0.6 points per game scorer, as he was a member of the Tar Heels “Blue Squad'' during his time with the program. The highlight of his career as a Tar Heel happened this season, where he started the season finale against Duke, as part of Carolina’s tradition on Senior Night. Miller, not scared of the moment, drew a charge, which was later credited by Roy Williams as a big momentum in an eventual rout of the Blue Devils. There’s no telling where Miller will end up, but early projections link him to UNC-Greensboro, where his brother, and former Tar Heel Wes Miller resides as the Spartans head coach.
