Top recruit Barnes picks UNC

Highly recruited 6-foot-6 forward Harrison Barnes of Ames, Iowa has committed to North Carolina.

In an announcement at his high school televised by ESPN-U, Barnes told North Carolina coach Roy Williams and the Tar Heel team by video conference that he had selected the Tar Heels.

Barnes has been the subject of incredible scrutiny as the No. 1-ranked player in the class according to scout.com. On Oct. 5, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski and North Carolina coach Roy Williams both visited his house.

Duke, North Carolina, Iowa State, Kansas, Oklahoma and UCLA were the finalists for Barnes.

Having such a high-profile player consider both Duke and North Carolina until the end is nearly unprecedented. Barnes added to the suspense with a disciplined and highly secretive selection process as he methodically visited all six schools.

You forgot to mention the part about him paying in-state tuition, therefore screwing the taxpayers of North Carolina. Wait, did I say "him paying"? I meant the booster club paying a discount rate thanks to the NC General Assembly.
