Alex Smith moved with his family to North Carolina in the midst of one of the richest times to be a Duke fan, the mid-90s. So naturally, as an iconoclast he chose to root for UNC. However, when it came time to go off to college in 1993 he must have been convinced by all the nice brochoures because although he never stepped foot on the campus up to that point, he chose to go to Duke sight unseen, and the rest, as they say, is history.
