Commitment Announcement
Yarlagadda Takes A Balanced Approach To UNC Commitment

The number that put the University of North Carolina over the top for Anika Yarlagadda wasn’t the eight ACC titles or two national indoor championships or Top 10 ranking.

Blue Chip Junior Anika Yarlagadda Has Committed to UNC

It was 90 - the percentage of UNC students applying to medical schools that are accepted, according to a CollegeMagazine.com article that ranked UNC as the No. 1 university for pre-med students.

“It was a big thing for me to walk into a school where 90 percent of kids there that want to go to medical school would have that chance,” she said. “It was hard for me to decide where I wanted to go, but that really stuck out to me.”

Yarlagadda committed to North Carolina during a visit to campus on Jan. 26. It was her second trip to the school, and the blue chip junior arrived knowing she would tell head coach Brian Kalbas about her plans to become a Tar Heel in 2019.

“I wanted to do it in person instead of by phone. Coach Kalbas had no idea. No one else knew,” said Yarlagadda, a West Bloomfield, Michigan native. “He was happy when I told him, and I cried. I was tearing up and my dad was so happy. I got so many hugs from everyone around there.”
