Former VT signee, 4-star guard Anthony Harris commits to UNC; Heels put together a top-10 class

As if the commitment of 5-star combo guard Cole Anthony wasn’t enough, North Carolina kept it rolling on Tuesday. A few hours later, Roy Williams and UNC landed another top-100 prospect: 4-star shooting guard Anthony Harris.

Last October, Harris committed to Buzz Williams and Virginia Tech; at the time, several other ACC programs, like Miami, were in the mix, too. However, shortly after Williams elected to leave Blacksburg for barrels of cash at Texas A&M, Harris was released from his LOI to Tech. Less than three weeks later, Harris pledged to the Heels.

The commitment of Harris comes right on the heels (pardon the pun) of his official visit to Chapel Hill, which started on Monday. Harris, who stands 6-foot-3, plays his prep basketball for Paul VI Catholic in Fairfax, Virginia; 247 Sports ranks the 4-star guard as a top-65 prospect.

With Harris in the fold now, North Carolina has quickly pieced together a powerful 2019 recruiting class. Anthony and Harris join 5-star center Armando Bacot and 3-star guard Jeremiah Francis in what’s now a top-10 class, nationally.
