Marcus Paige has been diagnosed with a stress fracture of his left foot, but his high school coach expects him to be fully recovered by the time he arrives at North Carolina in June.

“By the time he leaves in June to head down [to North Carolina], he’ll be fine,” said Chris Robertson, Paige’s coach at Linn-Mar High in Marion, Iowa.

Paige will be counted on replace NBA bound point guard Kendall Marshall.

“He’s just so excited to get down to Carolina,” Robertson said.
