The North Carolina Tar Heels are looking to re-tool for the new college basketball season, starting in Nov. 2018. The Tar Heels are interested in Kentucky Wildcats transfer Sacha Killeya-Jones.

The 6-foot-10, 221-pound forward received his full release from the Wildcats on Monday. He also considers Chapel Hill, N.C., the location of the UNC campus, his hometown.

“After much deliberation with my family, I have decided that it is in my best interest to ask for my release and explore other opportunities at this time,” Killeya-Jones said after being released.

This is the second time that the Tar Heels have considered Killeya-Jones. His mother confirmed that North Carolina is recruiting her son once again, according to Inside Carolina.

“It’s going to be a much more truncated process this time,” Ley Killeya-Jones said, according to Inside Carolina, on Friday. “It’s not going to be long and drawn out like it was before. He has a much better idea of what’s important and what he’s looking for.”

Wherever he chooses to go, he’ll have to sit out the 2018-19 season. He’s reportedly considering ten schools at this time.

His AAU program, Team Felton, announced on Friday night that he is considering Arizona State, Clemson, Georgetown, Nevada, N.C. State, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Texas, UNC, and Wake Forest.

This past season with the Wildcats, he appeared in 34 games. He averaged 3.3 points and 2.9 rebounds per game in 13.7 minutes per contest.

Killeya-Jones’ best performance was when he scored eight points against the Kansas Jayhawks in the Champions Classic in Nov.

He initially picked the Wildcats over the Tar Heels. He said at the time that he chose to pick Kentucky because North Carolina was under NCAA investigation at the time.
