North Carolina picked up a much-needed frontcourt player Thursday, with Vanderbilt transfer Ven-Allen Lubin announcing his commitment to the Tar Heels.

Lubin was one of the best big men left on the board after he opted to leave Vanderbilt and enter the transfer portal shortly before the May 1 deadline.

The 6-foot-8 forward had a breakout campaign with the Commodores, averaging 12.3 points and 6.3 rebounds. He played his best basketball late in the season, finishing with 25 points and 11 rebounds against Florida and 21 points and 10 rebounds against Arkansas.
