Reports: All-America G RJ Davis returning to Tar Heels

RJ Davis

Consensus All-American RJ Davis is returning to North Carolina for his fifth and final season, CBS Sports and The Field of 68 reported Wednesday.

The report follows fellow guard Seth Trimble’s announcement Tuesday that he’s returning for the 2024-25 season after entering the transfer portal on April 9. The Tar Heels also return sophomore point guard Elliot Cadeau.

Davis is expected to make an official announcement in the coming days.

Davis averaged a career-high 21.2 points in 37 starts last season, earning first team All-America honors. He’s averaging 15.1 points in 138 career games (118 starts). He shot 39.8 percent from the 3-point line. He led the Tar Heels to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. UNC lost to Alabama in a Sweet 16 game.

Davis eclipsed the 2,000-point scoring mark this past season and sits fifth on the all-time UNC scoring list at 2,088 points. He has a shot to eclipse Tyler Hansbrough (2,872 points) as the top scorer in Carolina history. Armando Bacot leaves UNC second on the all-time list with 2,348 points.

Trimble averaged 5.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 35 games (one start) this season. In his two seasons with the Tar Heels, he has compiled averages of 3.5 points and 1.5 rebounds in 68 games (three starts).
