Many have predicted that the 2012 NBA Draft will be absolutely inundated with talent, and here’s one more piece of evidence that those forecasts will be correct: UNC starters Harrison Barnes, Kendall Marshall and John Henson are all officially on their way to the League. The three of them are projected to be first-round selections this June. Via ESPN: “North Carolina players Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Kendall Marshall all will leave school early to enter the NBA draft, the Tar Heels announced Thursday. Barnes and Marshall are sophomores, while Henson is a junior. ‘It’s a great day for three youngsters who are taking another step toward their ultimate goal of playing professional basketball,’ coach Roy Williams said in a statement. ‘On a very small stage, it’s a sad day for me because I won’t get to coach them again. All Tar Heel fans will miss them greatly, as well.'”
