Yeah, we know it’s just a few weeks past end of the 2010-2011 season, but with Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Tyler Zeller staying in school, the Tar Heels are a shoe-in for the pre-season #1 as they were with a loaded squad back in 2008-2009.

This morning, Barnes made it official. 

In a statement released by UNC, Barnes said “As an 18-year-old, I'm in the early stages of my life journey.”

"I'm honored and blessed for the chance to play in the NBA. And because of my family, teachers, passion and work, I have the ultimate dream of one day playing and experiencing a fulfilling career in the NBA."

It's not a good day in Durham...
