Former North Carolina basketball player Michael Brooker recently made a discovery: Two letters from late Tar Heels coach Dean Smith.
Brooker, who was at North Carolina from 1996-01, took to social media to share the letters from the legendary coach.
Also found these two from late '95 right before I took my official visit to Chapel Hill. pic.twitter.com/Aa1FwzmAQC

Brooker currently is the basketball coach at Lake Oconee Academy, a public charter school in Greensboro, Ga.
Interestingly enough, Brooker never actually played a game for Smith despite being recruited by the legendary coach. Smith retired before the 1997-98 season, Brooker’s first year as an eligible player as he redshirted in 1996-97 — his first year on campus.
