Last week we had a chance to get a number of the players from the Hunting Park Warriors on the phone to discuss the current state of their recruitment and a little about their games.

For our third phone interview we talked to Anthony Durham of Abington High School.  Anthony is a 6-3 wing who can shoot it from outside or score attacking the cup.

His ability to score the ball is drawing the attention of quite a number of schools.

He has Fairfield, Niagara, La Salle, Quinnipiac, Long Island, George Mason, Rider and Stony Brook all in touch with him.

While he doesn't have any offers yet, a few of the schools have informed him that if he has a strong summer that they will offer.

Anthony does not appear to have any favorites at this time, but a couple of schools are in contact with him more than the others.  According to Anthony Fairfield, Niagara and Long Island are showing him the most love.

When looking for a school Anthony is looking to get away from home a bit, but not too far where his mom will not be able to see him play.

As with the other players we interviewed, we also wanted to get a self evaluation from Anthony about his game.  Anthony listed his strength as his shooting and scoring ability along with rebounding well for a guard and playing defense.

He felt the area where he needed the most work was just getting stronger.  In order to address this he has been hard at work in the weight room and getting lifts in as much as possible.  According to him a number of schools have already noticed that he is putting some weight on his frame.

We also asked Anthony if he had to compare himself to any NBA player who would it be.  He thought his game most resembled Jamal Crawford due to the way he scores, shoots and handles the ball, along with his defense.

When we have seen Anthony in action his scoring ability was on display.  He was fearless attacking the hoop and was able to convert on tough buckets in traffic.  He also showed that he could knock down shots from out beyond the arc.

When he was driving though he drove mostly to the right and didn't show many moves off the dribble.  It was enough though in the games we saw as he was able to still get a step on his man and get to the bucket.

If anthony continues to play at the level we saw he is sure to pull in some offers sooner than later.
