Iowa prep phenom Harrison Barnes says he'll play for North Carolina.Barnes, a 6-foot-7 swingman from Ames, is widely regarded as the top player in the Class of 2010.

Barnes was also considering Duke, Kansas, Oklahoma, UCLA and Iowa State, his hometown school. He made his announcement Friday before hundreds of students in the gym at Ames High School.

Barnes led Ames to a 26-0 record and a state title last winter, but he's made a name for himself nationally with impressive performances on the summer circuit.

Barnes is seen an athletic wing player with a strong jump shot, a high basketball IQ and the ability to defend multiple positions.
