Agree. On #5, Cole Anthony is still a hope...

He said he wanted to play for a non one and done factory and wants to be able to play for a team capable of reaching a Final Four/championship. From all reports, it seems Oregon and UNC are the frontrunners. UNC has Armando Bacot who is one of Cole's better friends.

I'm not so sure either would have a better roster than ND next year BUT because ND has the whole team back, there's going to be a big logjam at guard. If he goes to UNC or Oregon there's almost no competition for any touches or shots.

Oregon loses Bol Bol to the NBA and possibly Louis King (highly rated freshman).

UNC loses 3 seniors in Kenny Williams, Luke Maye, and Cam Johnson, along with 1 or both of Coby White and Nassir Little. If they don't get Cole Anthony, next year will be one of their worst teams in a decade.

ND has a better roster next year than UNC but like you mentioned, having the whole team back makes it harder to recruit.
