Cole Anthony picks North Carolina

Cole Anthony is headed to North Carolina. The top ranked guard in the 2019 class just picked the Tar Heels over Georgetown, Notre Dame, and Oregon on ESPN.

Kentucky was once in the running, but didn’t make the cut when Anthony, the son of former NBA star Greg Anthony, narrowed his list to six at the end of October. With Coby White headed to the NBA, landing Anthony is a big, big deal for Roy Williams’ squad. Dangit.

Now that Anthony’s off the board, only one top 15 recruit in the 2019 class is undecided: Jaden McDaniels.

1. James Wiseman – Memphis
2. Cole Anthony – North Carolina
2. Isaiah Stewart – Washington
4. Anthony Edwards – Georgia
5. Vernon Carey Jr. – Duke
6. Jaden McDaniels – Undecided
7. Josh Green – Arizona
8. Nico Mannion – Arizona
9. Scottie Lewis – Florida
10. Matthew Hurt – Duke
11. Kahlil Whitney – Kentucky
12. Tyrese Maxey – Kentucky
13. Jeremiah Robinson-Earl – Villanova
14. Bryan Antoine – Villanova
15. Isaiah Mobley – USC

It seems like McDaniels will stay home and pick Washington, but Jack Pilgrim will bring you the latest on Kentucky’s chances later today.
