Three North Carolina Tar Heels have declared that they will enter this summer's NBA Draft. Guard Kendall Marshall (sophomore), forward Harrison Barnes (sophomore), and forward John Henson (junior) will all be in the 2012 NBA Draft. 

The Tar Heels will definitely need to find a new class for next year, as four of their starters won't be returning if you include Tyler Zeller, who will be graduating. 

"It's a great day for three youngsters who are taking another step toward their ultimate goal of playing professional basketball," coach Roy Williams said in a statement. "On a very small stage, it's a sad day for me because I won't get to coach them again. All Tar Heel fans will miss them greatly, as well."

James Michael McAdoo might also declare for the draft, but the freshman forward may stay another year according to his father.

All of these guys seem like first-rounders and had a pretty good college career and I wish the best of luck to them once they hit the pros.
