Illinois signs prep forward Anthony Higgs from Baltimore

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Prep forward Anthony Higgs has signed with Illinois and will join the program next season.

Higgs, 6-foot-8 and from Baltimore, led Perry Hall High to back-to-back state title in 2017 and 2018. Higgs averaged 10.5 points, eight rebounds and four blocks a game during the 2018 state semifinal and final rounds.

Coach Brad Underwood describes Higgs, a one-time Ole Miss commit, as a long, versatile and "athletic lefty who can play inside or step out and face the basket."
