Greaser, a senior this fall at Butler, will play collegiately at the University of North Carolina. Greaser made the announcement on Wednesday via Twitter.

The Tarheels have reached the NCAA Championships the last two years, including a 15th-place finish in 2018.

Greaser, a two-time, first-team all-Greater Western Ohio Conference selection, finished fifth last year in the Division I state tournament. He was the player of the year in GWOC American North Division.

Earlier this year, Greaser won back-to-back tournaments on the AJGA Tour, including the Justin Thomas Junior Championship.

The high school golf season begins Aug. 4.
