35 – Ryan McAdoo (Red-Shirt Junior, Forward, Boca Raton, Fla.)

For the incoming freshmen, they have some heavy names who use to wear their numbers. Here's a look at former Heels who have not only worn the number, but had it honored in the rafters,

2 (Love): Raymond Felton, Wayne Ellington, Marc Campbell, Leslie McDonald, Joel Berry II

4 (Davis): Scott Williams, Isaiah Hicks

11 (Sharpe): Larry Brown, Brice Johnson, Quentin Thomas, Larry Drew II

13 (Kessler): John Dillon, Will Graves, J.P. Tokoto, Kanler Coker

14 (Johnson): Jeff Lebo, Danny Green, Brandon Robinson

24 (Walton): Kobe Bryant (Doesn't count?), Walter Davis, Marvin Williams, Justin Watts, Kenny Williams

25 (Lebo): Jason Capel, Damion Grant, Aaron Rohlman

*Noticeably, Carolina didn't give Lebo his father's jersey. He presumably wants to develop his legacy at the Smith Center.
