Nation's best high school guard Cole Anthony signs with North Carolina

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WTVD) -- The second ranked basketball prospect in the country will be attending the University of North Carolina next season.

Cole Anthony announced his intent on ESPN on Tuesday morning.

Anthony is a 6-foot-3 point guard. According to ESPN rankings, center James Wiseman (Memphis commit) is the only high school player more sought after this year than Anthony.

Anthony will replace outgoing freshman Coby White, who played his way into a high NBA draft pick.

Anthony will join fellow five-star recruit Armando Bacot and four-star recruit Jeremiah Francis in wearing Carolina Blue in the Dean E. Smith Center next season.
