North Carolina Women’s Basketball Recruiting

Official Tar Heels roster


Unofficial Scholarship Chart

Note: The NCAA has granted an extra year of eligibility to 2020-21 D-I winter sports athletes (including women’s basketball players). Programs will be allowed to exceed the 15-scholarship limit for the 2021-22 season only (and only for their own returning players). Until there is definitive word that a player will be taking advantage of this extra year, the WBB Blog scholarship charts will not reflect this extra eligibility.

  • August 2020: Kayla McPherson (2021) commits to UNC
  • January 2021: Kennady Tucker enters her name into the transfer portal
  • March 2021: Carlie Littlefield announces her commitment to UNC as a grad transfer from Princeton
