Seventh Woods announced on Thursday afternoon that he will be transferring out of the North Carolina program.

“My three years here at UNC has been nothing short of amazing,” Woods said in a statement posted to Instagram. “Two regular season championships, a National Championship and group of brothers that I would cherish for life. I wouldn’t go back and change any decision I’ve made but I do feel like it’s time for a change.”

Woods was a viral sensation as a freshman in high school, when his ludicrous dunking exploits went viral in a youtube video produced by Hoopmixtape. He eventually ended up being a top 30 prospect, but he never had the chance to be the starting point guard for the Tar Heels. He played behind Joel Berry for the first two years of his career and Coby White this season. With Cole Anthony committing to play for the Tar Heels this week, Woods was again staring at a role coming off the bench.

This past season, the South Carolina native averaged 2.5 points and 2.1 assists.
