Cassius Stanley and Cole Anthony are two of the brightest young stars for next season. Anthony is listed as the #2 prospect by ESPN and #4 by 247 Sports, while Cassius Stanley is rated a little bit lower at 29 overall by both sites. The two of them are both announcing their decisions this week, with Cassius going first at 12:30 PST on Monday afternoon, and Cole Anthony going the next day early morning.
Cassius Stanley is deciding between 4 schools: UCLA, Oregon, Kansas, and Duke. Duke seems to be a heavy favorite at the moment and it would be a big surprise if he didn’t declare there. He would join a team with 4 other 5 stars already, giving Duke the #1 recruiting class this year. The only other team that has a chance is UCLA, which is near to home. The hiring of Mick Cronin may have hurt there chances of getting him however, as his coaching style would not pair well with Stanley’s play style.
Cole Anthony is deciding between 6 schools, UNC, Oregon, Miami, Georgetown, Wake Forest, and Notre Dame. Like Stanley, it would be an absolute shocker if he did not decide on one particular school, and that school is UNC. UNC is nearly a 100% favorite to get him, and he will join a team that has made the national championship twice in the last 5 seasons and will be coached by one of the best coaches of all time in Roy Williams.
