UNC Basketball Recruiting: Tar Heels Make an Offer to Dante Exum

In a rather surprising turn of events in basketball recruiting from the office of Roy Williams in Chapel Hill, the Tar Heels have extended a scholarship offer to Dante Exum. Exum is the No. 1 overall player from Australia.

Five-star point guard Dante Exum from Canberra’s Australian Institute of Sport received the offer earlier today in addition to the six other offers he has received. The 6’5″ and 180 pound point guard has already received offers from Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Boise State, and SMU.

This has confused many Tar Heel fans across the nation as they’ve already picked up a commitment from Joel Berry in the 2014 class, and should have a second point guard joining the team in 2014 when Stilman White returns from his two-year mission.

Evan Daniels was first to report North Carolina’s offer this morning tweeting the report to his followers.

For those who are unfamiliar with the Exum family, Dante’s father Cecil was a forward at UNC Chapel Hill under Dean Smith’s tenure. He never found a fit in the NBA and moved to Australia to play professional basketball.
