The Son Also Rises?

We were a bit surprised to see a name from the ACC's past pop up as a parent of a bright prospect, but what can you can say? It happens.

No, we're not talking about former Tiger Mitchell Wiggins and son Andrew; we're talking about former Tar Heel Cecil Exum and his Australian-born son Dante.

Dante is a 6-6 point guard who has become a hot prospect. There's no guarantee he'll ever play in college though. He graduates Aussie high school in November and could just wait for the draft.

Then again he might. Kentucky's been mentioned as has Georgetown, SMU, LSU, Ohio State, Michigan, Louisville and Duke. Since he's likely been regaled with stories of Michael Jordan since he was a baby, it's hard to imagine UNC not having a significant advantage at least at the beginning.
