UNC Basketball: 2015-16 Projected Starting Lineup

5 of 7

Power Forward: Brice Johnson
Backup: Isaiah Hicks

Like Tokoto, Brice Johnson has only shown a little bit of what he can do offensively. By the time his senior season rolls around, he will be hard nosed rim protector, poised defender, and reliable option on the low block.

His backup will be junior Isaiah Hicks. Hicks never really broke into the rotation in the 2013-14 season and was forced to play out of position due to positional needs on the wing for the Tar Heels. He looked lost out on the perimeter, but once the Tar Heels shift him back to where he is more comfortable, down in the paint, Hicks will become a beast off the bench for the Tar Heels in 2015-16.
