NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. — Cole Anthony says he doesn’t know yet where he’ll be spending his senior year of high school, but it won’t be at New York powerhouse Archbishop Molloy, his home for the last three years.
The 6-foot-3 New York City point guard, ranked No. 2 in the Class of 2019 by Rivals.com and the winner of a gold medal this summer with the USA U18 team, is looking for a new home for his senior year.
“I have no idea yet,” Anthony said Friday at the Peach Jam, where he’s playing with the New York-based PSA Cardinals.
Greg Anthony, the former NBA player and Cole’s father, said they have had discussions with several national powerhouses, including Oak Hill Academy (VA), Montverde Academy (FL), IMG Academy (FL) and Findlay Prep (NV), but they haven’t made a decision yet.

“It’s obviously getting close to a time where we’re going to have to really think about it,” Greg said. “We haven’t focused on it yet because we had FIBA Americas and now we got this, so that’s kind of what our focus is.”
He added: “We just don’t know yet….That stuff’s not where we are right now.”
