Linn-Mar hoops star Marcus Paige has committed to North Carolina.— KWWL Sports (@KWWLSports) January 9, 2011
Marcus Paige, the state of Iowa's top basketball recruit in 2012, and ranked the #5 point guard by Rivals, chose UNC over Kansas, Illinois, Iowa State, Iowa, and others. It really was down to UNC and Kansas by all accounts, and Iowa State was probably never realistically in it. Now J.P. Tokoto, a small forward out of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin is the highest rated ISU-target by Rivals for 2012. He's the #10 rated SF in the nation, and has offers from Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Wisconsin, UNC, and others. Have to see if TJ can work his WI magic on this one.
