Love moving on from Michigan, reportedly because of issue with academic credits

D’Marco Dunn becomes the seventh UNC player to transfer, leaving four returnees
Rising junior D’Marco Dunn on Thursday became the seventh player from last season’s North Carolina team to enter the transfer portal, according to multiple reports, leaving only four returning players. One reason he may have decided to leave is the possible reclassification of Class of 2024 five-start point guard Eliot Cadeau to join the team next season. That decision would mean RJ Davis would shift to the two spot and fewer opportunities for Dunn to get playing time, with the competition already including Seth Trimble, transfer Cormac Ryan and incoming freshman Simeon Wilcher.
