Sunday, we will see a major Tar Heel target in the 2023 class announce their commitment for a second consecutive day.
2023 4✮ IOL Markee Anderson will be revealing his destination at 3:00 PM today via Instagram page and some other social media outlets. He will decide between his final four of Carolina, South Carolina, Clemson and LSU, a group that he revealed back on April 30th. He did take an official visit to each of those four schools in the month of June, with his perceived leader getting the final pitch.
South Carolina has been the favorite for the better part of a year now and the official visit seems to have put them in a pretty good spot. The hometown team, Clemson, appeared like they had a shot when they initially offered back in September, but they were just never able to catch the Gamecocks in this race. As for the Tar Heels, landing his high school teammate D.J. Geth had to certainly catch his attention and may have given him something to think about, but it just doesn’t look to have been enough.
The recruiting experts agree that the Gamecocks are the favorites heading in. All three of the crystal ball predictions are in favor of the Gamecocks, although each one was cast back in February. On3 Sports’ Wes Mitchell also has a prediction down for the Gamecocks from back in the spring. The most recent predictions come from Rivals experts Caleb Alexander and Perry McCarty, who submitted their FutureCasts yesterday.
The Tar Heels certainly hoped that they could pair up Anderson with Geth, especially after Geth’s recent commitment. However, the Gamecocks got into this early and never really looked back once they took the lead.
Prediction: South Carolina
