Justin Pierce, a graduate transfer shooting guard from William and Mary, on Thursday announced that his next stop would be North Carolina.

Pierce, a native of Glen Ellyn, Ill., picked the Tar Heels over Michigan and Notre Dame.

"I'm excited to announce that I am a Tar Heel!" Pierce wrote on Twitter. "North Carolina offers me the best opportunity to chase my dreams on and off the court. While playing on the biggest stage, I will also be earning my MBA and building lifelong connections that will help me pursue my goal of working in the front office of an NBA organization after my playing career ends. I'm excited to join the family and to compete for a national championship next year!"
