2018 Hoophall Classic: Archbishop Molloy vs DeMatha Catholic David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Cole Anthony is a top-five player and the No. 1 combo guard in the class of 2019. By the time his college days come around, he could be the top player in his class. But he doesn’t talk about his own recruitment ... at least until he talked to Ben Roberts of the Lexington Herald Leader about Kentucky.

“Obviously, we’re going to consider Kentucky,” Anthony said, according to Roberts.

He didn’t offer any more insight on who he’s considering, but he did talk about his recruiting process early on.

Anthony is the son of former NBA player Greg Anthony. He’s a 6-2, 175-lb combo guard, and he’s ranked the No. 1 player in the state of New York by 247 Sports.

Currently, the Duke Blue Devils and Oregon Ducks are the favorites to land Anthony in his crystal ball.
