Manhattan, NY (Future150) -- Few freshmen enter their first high school season with the type of hype that Cole Anthony did this year, but Cole Anthony isn’t just any freshman. The son of former  UNLV Rebel and NBA guard Greg Anthony, his name has led to high expectations. 

Fortunately for Archbishop Molloy, his game fits the name. The lead guard spent the summer proving he’s one of the top players in the class of 2019 and looks to be one of Molloy’s top players already. Last weekend he lead his team to an impressive victory over a top PSAL program in Boys & Girls. Blessed with fantastic court vision and speed, Anthony is able to create scoring opportunities for both himself and his teammates. He is also very athletic and can get to the rim in an instant. But perhaps the most component to Anthony’s game is his basketball IQ. When he’s on the floor, he plays with the poise of a player much older and more proven. Part of that poise can be directly credited to being the son of a former NBA point guard. 

“I try to learn as much as I can from him, we go over my game a lot together,” said Anthony of his father. 

Despite only being a freshman, colleges have already noticed his talent and have begun to recruit him. Arizona is the most recent program to reach out to his father, while Iona has been the only program to offer. Villanova and UConn are both keeping tabs as well.  Maryland was in attendance for his game against Boys & Girls as well. While the process has already begun, Anthony isn’t focused on it and understands that there’s still quite a ways to go before having to worry about that. 

Joining one of the more talented and storied programs in the NYC Catholic league will only help to boost Anthony’s profile. With an advanced skill set, it wouldn’t be a total surprise to see him play up an age group or two as well.  But for now, his focus is on capturing a catholic league title. Follow along with Future150 as we continue to cover the city’s top freshman.
