The 2025 wing plays his high school ball at Long Island Lutheran in New York.
He’s a 4-star prospect, according to On3.
On the Nike EYBL circuit, Anthony is a big-time scorer, averaging nearly 18 points per contest and 35% from three, so this isn’t just a name thing.
Just watch! He’s really good!

Maybe he’ll want to ditch his dad’s (Syracuse) Orange, and go with the Orange (and Blue) instead.
