Concord Cannon's Gross commits to UNC

Concord Cannon girls' basketball star Krista Gross committed to North Carolina Friday morning.

Gross, a 6-foot senior, is ranked among the top 25 players in the nation by most recruiting services. She chose the Tar Heels over over Connecticut, Florida and Stanford.

Gross (no 23) is the fourth player ranked in ESPN’s top 100 to commit to North Carolina, following Waltia Rolle, a 6-6 center from Texas (No. 28), Cierra Warren, a 6-3 center-forward from California (No. 31), and Nyree Williams, a 6-1 wing from Maryland (No. 88).

Gross was a first-team All-Piedmont pick by the Charlotte Observer last season. She averaged 21 points and 13.5 rebounds last season.
