USA Basketball Trials: Brand name association

Men’s Wearhouse seems to be a go-to for the proper attire to make a great impression, which makes Cole Anthony’s persona the ideal marriage between business and prospect. Armando Bacot was arguably the best rebounder throughout training camp, making him the ultimate Windex player. The best Valvoline-fueled motor in camp was that of Jeremiah Robinson-Earl.

“A year ago, I thought it was clear cut: Carolina or Kansas for Matthew Hurt,” said Rivals.com analyst Corey Evans. “I think those two are still at the top, but I think the Duke idea has gotten to him. I think Kentucky intrigues him. And Louisville as well. Indiana’s also in the picture. And you can’t discount Minnesota. “I would say it’s going to be a battle royal of the blue bloods for this one.” (Lexington Herald-Leader)

Cole Anthony learning from his Pops

Cole Anthony will not talk about the schools recruiting him, but he did have insight on how his dad impacts his game.
