The UNC Tar Heels added a commitment from William & Mary graduate transfer Justin Pierce.

Pierce, who is ranked #5 in ESPN's graduate transfer rankings, chose the Tar Heels over Michigan and Notre Dame.

Pierce said he wanted to emulate Cam Johnson's role.

"Seeing what type of impact he had early on his career, it made me comfortable to that system, that style of play, because I like to play up-tempo and fast. I think I can make a big impact there. They really need someone on the perimeter with size. It's a really unique opportunity for me. I bring a lot of experience to the table, because they're going to have a lot of young guys. I pride my game on my versatility. I'm going to do whatever it takes to help the team win. I can obviously score and shoot the ball, but I also consider myself an excellent rebounder for my size. I love to get other guys involved, love to pass the ball. They really liked all those three things I can consistently do at a high level. I can impact a game even if my shot isn't going in that game."
