Hours after earning all-state player of the year honors, Moon’s Donovan Johnson received a scholarship offer from North Carolina.

The Tar Heels offered Johnson on Tuesday, said his father Gil. The 6-foot-7 junior already held offers from Pitt Arizona, Ohio State, TCU, Xavier and others.

What makes North Carolina more interesting is that Johnson’s older brother Cameron played the past two seasons for the Tar Heels.

Johnson averaged 22.6 points, 9.4 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 1.5 blocks per game this past season as Moon went 28-2 and won the state Class 5A title. He was named Tuesday as the state’s Class 5A player of the year.

He also was the TribLive HSSN Player of the Year.
