Blumberg Chooses Carolina Blue

As he considered his options for college, Blue Chip William Blumberg encountered a problem - every school he visited went to the top of his list. Blumberg considered Duke, USC, Wake Forest, Stanford, Virginia and North Carolina before finally paring his choice down to the Cavaliers and Tar Heels. In the end, the nation's top-ranked senior liked what he saw to UNC, and he plans to graduate early and join the Tar Heels in January for the 2017 spring season. Story
