CHAPEL HILL – Reggie Bullock’s basketball career as a Tar Heel has come to an end.

UNC Athletics released a statement on Tuesday officially announcing that this season’s third-leading scorer has decided to enter the 2013 NBA Draft.

The junior tallied 13.9 points per game in the 2012-2013 season in which North Carolina finished third in the regular season, runner up in the ACC tournament, and was knocked out of the NCAA tournament by Kansas in the Round of 32.

Bullock was also looked to as an emotional leader in a year that Carolina was tagged as a “young team” without a known leader heading into the season. He and Dexter Strickland were the only players with more than two years playing experience.

Bullock was projected to be chosen late in the first round or early in the second on some mock drafts. At the time of the announcement, multiple mock drafts didn’t have the guard listed.

Tuesday morning before the official announcement was made, Bullock’s Twitter account (@DaBully35) was being lit up from teammates and members of the Carolina community wishing him luck in the future.

Sophomore P.J. Hairston announced on Friday that he will remain at Carolina for his junior year. Sophomore James Michael McAdoo is the final player whose future as a Tar Heel is in question, as far as the 2013 NBA Draft is concerned.
