North Carolina hoops recruit Elliot Cadeau to enroll early - ESPN
Elliot Cadeau, the No. 10 prospect in the 2024 ESPN 100 rankings, will graduate early from high school and enroll at North Carolina next week as a member of the 2023 recruiting class, he told ESPN on Tuesday.
He will now have the option to enter the 2024 NBA draft, should he choose.
"I think I'm ready," Cadeau said. "I think that I can play in college in a couple of months. There's no reason to stay in high school, because I can hang with college players right now."

Cadeau is coming off an outstanding season in which he proved to be arguably the best point guard in high school basketball, helping Link Academy win the Geico national championship and then leading the Nike EYBL in assists by a wide margin with 9.3 per game. He's guided his New Heights Lightning team to a 13-4 record, posting 29 points and 15 assists in what proved to be his final grassroots game Monday.
