Anthony Attempting to Visit UNC

Stephone Anthony had planned to attend North Carolina's Thursday night game against Florida State. However, a scheduling conflict prevented the 2011 prospect from making the trip to Chapel Hill.

"I was planning on [attending the game], but I didn't get a chance to," Anthony said. "Something came up."

Anthony said he hopes to attend a game at UNC before the end of the season. However, his schedule has not been conducive for recruiting trips – he has only visited Clemson and that was during the summer.

Anthony, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound linebacker from Wadesboro (N.C.) Anson County, has collected a baker's dozen of scholarship offers – Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Maryland, Miami, UNC, NC State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

"It's very exciting [to have so many offers this early]," Anthony said. "I'm just enjoying the ride and trying to not let my head swell up."

With a constant flow of new scholarship offers, Anthony has found difficulty in assembling a favorites list.

"I've been trying out a top five, but every time I get one it just seems to change on me," Anthony said.

However, Anthony did reveal that LSU and Miami are likely to make his top five schools list.

"[LSU and Miami] both have great football programs that have great potential for the future," Anthony said.

Anthony has already begun to establish relationships with several coaches. He has had conversations with Bryan McClendon of Georgia, Les Miles of LSU, and David White of Oklahoma.

Every school is recruiting Anthony as a linebacker.

After playing on the outside as a sophomore, Anthony was moved to middle linebacker before the season. Already, he has accumulated 100 tackles this season. He also plays some tailback, where he has scored nine touchdowns.
