Senior forward Brady Manek will not be returning to Oklahoma.

Utilizing his additional year of eligibility, Manek announced on Twitter he will be committing to the North Carolina Tar Heels.

In his final year in Norman, Manek averaged 10.8 points per game, 5.0 rebounds and 0.8 assists.

Manek was the third leading scorer for Oklahoma as his role evolved over the course of the season.

Manek finished his Sooner career with 1,459 points, ranking No. 14 in OU history.
