Leslie McDonald is back, and the North Carolina Tar Heels could not be happier. He will be a candidate to be the Tar Heels' next go-to guy. 

The 6’5" shooting guard from Memphis will return to the Tar Heels at the start of the 2012-2013 season after missing all of last year with a torn ACL. 

While attempting a crossover in a summer league game, L-Mac’s knee gave out, and he fell to the ground in excruciating pain. Since then he has had surgery to repair his torn ACL and has faced a long rehabilitation period.

But L-Mac’s desire to play on the Tar Heels assisted in his recovery. His speedy recovery was thanks to his dedication and hard work. If it weren’t for losing a year of eligibility, L-Mac could have been playing last season.

He and coach Roy Williams decided it was best to red-shirt the three-point shooting star, so he could be fresh and ready for the 2012-2013 season.

After good freshman and sophomore years, L-Mac will be ready to turn it up a notch and will be the Tar Heels' next go-to guy.
