In just one year, the North Carolina point guard has gone from being the Tar Heels’ last resort to being their answer. But despite the progress he’s made on the basketball court, White is more than willing to leave that dream-come-true behind. At least for a little while.
He’s got another dream to pursue.
A member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, White will leave the life he knows this summer and embark on a two-year-long mission, during which he’ll spend his days studying scripture, serving the community and spreading the gospel.
