For those of you on Twitter, D.J. is one of the voices behind the popular @Real_BlueSteel account run by the lesser-known players on the UNC Basketball team. Players will occasionally tweet funny quips before or after games.
 
D.J. joined the Tar Heels varsity basketball team right before the 2010-2011 season. He previously played with the junior varsity program. He follows in his father’s footsteps, who played basketball for Carolina when the team made it to the 1972 Final Four.
 
Aside from being athletic and entertaining, D.J. is an outgoing guy enjoys meeting people and having a good time.  D.J. said that he is always wiling to introduce himself when placed in new situations. 
 
“I want everyone around me to have as much fun as I’m having,” D.J. said.
 
D.J.’s positive attitude, athleticism and charm are what make him this week’s campus cutie.
