MARION (KWWL) -- Linn-Mar's Marcus Paige will continue his basketball career at the University of North Carolina.  Paige officially committed to Roy Williams and the Tar Heels on Sunday night.

Paige released the following statement:

"I would like to thank all the coaches across the country who have taken the time to recruit me to be a part of their basketball program. The recruiting process has been exciting for me and my family. At this time I would like to announce that I have accepted a scholarship offer from Coach Roy Williams to continue my career as a student athlete at the University of North Carolina. The decision process has been difficult and the deciding factors for me include the great relationship that I have developed with Coach Williams and his staff, the history and tradition of North Carolina basketball, and having the opportunity to play for a National Championship."

Paige chose North Carolina over offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas, and many others.
