Cameron Johnson Is Not Too Happy With Pitt And The NCAA Trying To Keep Him From Playing At North Carolina


Former University of Pittsburgh college basketball player Cameron Johnson wants to take his talents to the University of North Carolina but Pitt and the NCAA are preventing him from doing so. According to Pitt and NCAA rules Johnson is allowed to transfer to any school outside of the Atlantic Coast Conference. So since UNC is in the ACC, Johnson is not able to leave Pitt for there. Johnson is not too happy with this attempt to block him from going to UNC and put Pitt and the NCAA on blast for it.

Let’s check in with Twitter about Johnson’s comments on Pitt and the NCAA.


I agree with Johnson that he should be able to transfer to any school that he wants, but the examples that he cites don't support his argument. The coaches that left went to schools outside of the ACC. I'm sure if they left to go to a competitor or another ACC school they would have ran into the same setback as Johnson is here. Johnson knew the rules. If he wanted to play immediately and not have to sit out one year, he should have transferred to a school that was outside of the ACC. The NCAA is a big business and all about competition and money, so I understand why they have this rule in place. This is not new. There are non-compete clauses everywhere in the business world. Not saying I agree with them, but they do exist and you need to take the necessary precautions to work around them.
