Should Zayden High return to North Carolina for his sophomore season?

100% yes.

High feels like a player who can develop into a really important piece for this UNC basketball program over time.

If you watch the Tar Heels' sidelines, High is typically the first one standing up cheering on and supporting his teammates. For a freshman who was as highly-touted as High, they might've gotten frustrated with the lack of playing time, but it appears that High has bought all-in, which would be very disappointing if he decided to leave via the transfer portal.

As a sophomore, I'd expect that High would earn a bigger role in the Tar Heels rotation, as the year of experience under his belt should be very beneficial. This is a guy that Hubert Davis and his staff should want to keep around, as the potential is there, it just needs to be developed!
