5-Star Son Of A College Basketball Legend Makes Huge Recruiting Decision

Cole Anthony, the son of former UNLV and longtime NBA point guard Greg Anthony, is one of the top recruits in the class of 2019.

Anthony is a five-star player, and the No. 3 player in the country. He's the top ranked guard in the class.

He's currently playing for prestigious basketball prep school Oak Hill Academy.

In late August, Anthony released his final 12 schools list. Duke, Georgetown, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami , North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oregon, Pitt, Villanova and Wake Forest made the cut.

Two of those programs are getting official visits in the coming weeks, now.

According to SNY's Adam Zagoria, Cole Anthony will visit Notre Dame this weekend, and North Carolina at the end of the month.

The two ACC programs have to like where their sitting among a large group of power programs.

One school that doesn't appear to be involved is his father's alma mater, UNLV. Greg Anthony was a 1990 national champion with the Runnin' Rebels.

He went on to a 12 year NBA career from 1991-2002, after being the 12th overall pick by the New York Knicks.

Greg Anthony currently works as a college basketball studio analyst for CBS and Turner Sports. He'll probably get to break down his son's games for a huge program in a few years.
