No Tar Heel's stock fell farther these past few games than Harrison Barnes'.
At one time, Barnes was the No. 2 prospect in the draft behind only Anthony Davis. After this weekend, ESPN's Chad Ford has him ranked eighth on his big board, behind players like Bradley Beal, Cody Zeller and even James Michael McAdoo.
Barnes has been compared to NBA players like Luol Deng, Grant Hill and even Paul Pierce. However, his subpar performance in the tournament has led people to question whether he can ever live up to his considerable potential.
At 6'8" and 215 lbs with a 7'0" wingspan, Barnes has the size of an NBA player. His ability to rebound and his jumper are both very good.
The knock on Barnes is his consistency. There are times when Barnes seems to coast through games, look thoroughly disinterested and force really bad shots. Conversely, there are times when he becomes The Black Falcon and completely dominates games.
Last year, Barnes toyed with the option to join the draft before ultimately deciding to return to UNC for his sophomore year, and after his debacles against Ohio and Kansas he very well could do that again with the intent of improving his stock and possibly going No. 1 overall.
However, it is more likely that Barnes decides to declare, especially if Carolina were to lose Marshall and Henson. Don't be surprised to see the enigmatic star declare.
Odds he declares for the draft: 90%
