Could another Stanford transfer be destined to join the UNC basketball program?

One of the major moves that Hubert Davis and the UNC basketball program made last offseason was the addition of Stanford transfer Harrison Ingram.

Ingram was outstanding in his first season as a Tar Heel, as his future (whether to enter the NBA Draft or return to Chapel Hill) is still very much in question.

As the Tar Heels await some important decisions from Ingram and RJ Davis, they are looking at another Stanford transfer who could make a lot of sense for them moving forward.

Inside Carolina was the first to report that the Tar Heels have been in contact with Andrej Stojakovic. The last name may sound familiar, as he is the son of former NBA star Peja Stojakovic.

Stojakovic averaged 7.8 points and 3.4 rebounds per game as a freshman. Mostly as a reserve, the former McDonald's All-American's best outing came against USC, a game in which he scored 20 points.

Hubert Davis has been in contact with Stojakovic, as the Tar Heels' entire coaching staff recently met with him for a Zoom meeting. At this point, we'll have to wait and see if the early dialogue between the two sides will lead to an official visit to Chapel Hill.

The 6-foot-7 wing could make a lot of sense for the UNC basketball program, especially given his reputation as a very good shooter. Although he shot just 32.7% from three-point range this season, this is definitely a player who could improve upon that, especially in a situation that provides him space to work with.

Stojakovic could be enticed by the possibility of potentially playing alongside the likes of RJ Davis, Harrison Ingram (who could be a very valuable recruiter for the Tar Heels in this recruitment) and others, or he simply could come to Chapel Hill hoping to replicate the kind of success Cormac Ryan had in his lone season on campus.

Regardless, this is a name to keep an eye on, as it's possible the UNC basketball program can add a talented Stanford transfer for a second consecutive offseason.
