In an Instagram post, the 6'10'', 225 pound Kessler wrote, "Excited to announce that I will be playing for Coach Williams at UNC. GO TAR HEELS!!!"
Kessler, out of Woodward Academy (Georgia), had been mulling offers from Auburn, California, Gonzaga and Duke.
"Honestly I just felt like I could see myself playing for coach Roy [Williams]," Kessler told 247Sports. "He’s a great man and the coaching staff was a great coaching staff. The facilities were great, the campus was great. I felt like even if I didn’t play basketball I could see myself being a student there.
"It was really a gut feeling honestly," Kessler added.
