Anthony Ratliff On Board With UNC

There’s no questioning Anthony Ratliff’s commitment. On Aug. 1, he signed a scholarship agreement with UNC. “It’s definitely a monkey off my back, because it was bothering me a lot,” Ratliff said. “I wanted to go ahead and get it over with, because I was signed, sealed, and delivered once I gave my verbal to Carolina.” Signing has allowed Ratliff to focus even more on his senior football season. Last season he was one of several new starters who were tasked with replacing a talented group of seniors that helped Butler win a NCHSAA 4AA Title. (Inside Carolina)
