JW. B. . . Jae'Lyn Withers

Fans will likely complain that Withers' grade is to high, as the struggles he experienced in the Sweet 16 are the last thoughts we have of the Louisville transfer's first season as a Tar Heel.

However, Withers developed into a reliable player off the bench, as his size and athleticism definitely made an impact on numerous occasions.

Look at his performance in Charlotte during the NCAA Tournament. There were plenty of positive moments for Withers this season.

Consider this: Withers' minutes were cut in half from a season ago (when he was at Louisville). That could be a very difficult adjustment for a guy who was used to playing so much on a regular basis.

When his number was called, Withers provided production. Sure, he could've shoot the ball better from deep, but his athleticism and energy were crucial aspects in some important games for the UNC basketball program this season.
