Tar Heels' Woods says he's transferring

North Carolinaguard Seventh Woods announced Thursday he is leaving the program and transferring.

"I wouldn't go back and change any decision I've made but I do feel like it's time for a change," Woods' statement read. "... I plan on finishing my academic and basketball career elsewhere."

Woods entered college with plenty of hype, as a top-100 recruit and YouTube sensation due to his dunking exploits. His viral videos were generating millions of views when he was as young as 14 years old.

But Woods never found a consistent role during his three years at North Carolina, and averaged 2.5 points and 2.1 assists last season. Despite the Tar Heels losing their top five scorers, Woods was unlikely to see an increased role next season, as Carolina added No. 1 guard recruit Cole Anthony and ESPN 100 guard Anthony Harris earlier this week.
