AKRON, Ohio — Anthony Bennett has a long list of schools.
A really long list.
In this interview at the LeBron James Skills Academy, the 6-foot-7, 242-pound rising senior at Findlay Prep listed UNLV, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Kentucky, Duke, Cincinnati, PIttsburgh, West Virginia and Florida State.
He also said he’s heard from North Carolina.
“They said they’re going to come to LeBron and they’re really excited to recruit me,” he said. “I just need to know a little more about the program because I’m really not big about basketball in college. I’m going to go in this year and watch all their games.”
A native of Toronto, Bennett plans on signing in the late signing period.
“Yeah,” he said, “the spring.”
