Odell Beckham Jr. explains UNC fandom

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Odell Beckham Jr. showed up at the Final Four in Arizona on Saturday to support North Carolina. Before the game started, Beckham posted video of himself cheering on the Tar Heels players as they ran past him on his Instagram Story.

But why is the Giants wide receiver a North Carolina fan when he grew up in Louisiana and played football at LSU? Beckham spoke to For The Win at Saturday’s Final Four about his UNC basketball fandom.
