Beau Maye joins UNC basketball program for 2022-23 season

Another member of the Maye family is joining a UNC sports team.

With Drake Maye finding success as the quarterback of the football team early on, his brother Beau is set to join the Tar Heels’ basketball program and follow in the footsteps of his older brother Luke.

Inside Carolina reported on Wednesday that Beau Maye will walk-on as a member of the basketball team for the 2022-23 season, joining Hubert Davis’ squad. The 6-foot-9 Maye played at Cornelius (N.C.) Hough high school and enrolled at UNC. He’s the third Maye brother to play athletics at North Carolina and the fourth to play college athletics.

His father, Mark, played college football for the Tar Heels as well.

The Tar Heels opened up practice this week for the upcoming season and are considered one of the favorites to win it all. There’s a chance we could see Beau in some games this year as part of Blue Steele on the bench if the Tar Heels do produce some blowouts this year.
