The nation’s top unsigned guard in the Class of 2019 has spoken—giving his first major recruiting update in almost six months, when he cut his list down from 12 to six schools.
On Sunday night, consensus five-star prospect and nationally-ranked top-five recruit Cole Anthony released his final four schools: the North Carolina Tar Heels, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Georgetown Hoyas, and Oregon Ducks.
He is the son of basketball analyst Greg Anthony, who was a NCAA champion at UNLV—before going on to a NBA career that lasted for just over a decade.
The 6-foot-3, 185-pound Anthony is currently listed as the No. 4-ranked recruit in the country, according to 247 Sports.
This season, he’s been ‘Mr. Triple-Double,’ averaging 18.0 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 10.2 assists at basketball powerhouse Oak Hill Academy (Va.). He and the Warriors are gearing up for Geico Nationals this weekend from April 4-6. Before Oak Hill Academy, he spent three standout seasons at Archbishop Molloy (N.Y.).
Recently, he was named the Most Valuable Player of this year’s McDonald’s All-American Game, after finishing with 14 points, five boards, and seven assists.
Anthony can seemingly do everything on the basketball court. He is a two-way impact player that gets the job done on both ends of the court. He has tremendous bounce and athleticism, as he is able to finish off high-flying dunks with ease or rise up for a monstrous rejection with force. He has great court vision, quickness, and handles, making him a tough player to guard. He’s is more than capable of setting up his own teammates, but he can also create for himself. He’s able to score from almost anywhere, but seems to really thrive with off-the-dribble jump shots or by attacking the basket.
