Tar Heels in the Pros: July 14-21

We missed last week’s Heels in the Pros, but Carolina alumni continue to do impressive things in their respective leagues.

Matt Harvey: Harvey continued to shine on the national stage as he started the All Star Game this past Monday. Harvey struck out three in his two innings, but he did hit Yankee super star Robinson Cano with a pitch that caused the second baseman to leave the game. Outside of that pitch, Harvey proved he deserved the start, and the former Tar Heel will be one of the top contenders for the Cy Young Award.

Kyle Seager: Seager is playing some incredible baseball, especially at the plate. The last game in which the Tar Heel didn’t get a hit was actually on June 29, and he’s raised his average to .292. This past week Seager didn’t play much because of the All Star break, but he did manage to continue his hitting streak and smack a home run against the Astros.


Reggie Bullock: The Los Angeles Clippers played four summer league games this week, and the rookie Tar Heel led his team in scoring every night. Bullock scored 18, 12, 20, and 22 points respectively. Most NBA veterans don’t play in the summer league games, but it’s an impressive showing nonetheless.

Danny Green: With the NBA finals loss in the rearview mirror, Green is currently abroad in a pretty cool program. The former Carolina champion is doing outreach and is in China currently with former Georgia Tech player Iman Shumpert.


Bryn Renner: Though he isn’t in the pros yet, the Tar Heel quarterback might feel better about his odds this week thanks to his performance at the Manning Quarterback Camp. Renner has NFL scouts raving about his arms. ESPN’s Jesse Palmer is calling him the number two breakout player for the upcoming season, Mike Mayock said he was the most polished of all the quarterbacks, and it is rumored that the Mannings thought he was the top quarterback in the camp. Others there included Alabama’s AJ McCarron, Missouri’s James Franklin, and Tahj Boyd of Clemson.
