Rashed Anthony commits to Seton Hall

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

Seton Hall has received a commitment from 2013 Flora Macdonald (N.C.) forward Rashed Anthony.

Rashed, who stands at about 6-foot-7, took an official visit to Seton Hall two weeks ago after a recruitment that started around September of last year. Four other local recruits joined Rashed during the second day of his visit. Since last fall, Anthony had reportedly picked up offers from Oklahoma, Kansas State, DePaul, Auburn, and Boston College. He had an in-home visit with Auburn last September and visited the Tigers in January. Anthony was also considering Boston College, Xavier, and South Carolina at the time of his commitment.

Described as a lengthy face-up forward, Rashed Anthony's game looks rather similar to that of current Seton Hall forward Brandon Mobley's. Rashed is also said to have a high motor on both the offensive and defensive glass, along with a developing outside shot. Here are three minutes of game footage from Rashed's 2011-12 season at Flora Macdonald.

SouthOrangeJuice.com has been told that Rashed Anthony was cleared by the N.C.A.A. clearinghouse last week. This is relevant due to the fact that Rashed's high school isn't exactly being held in the best light as of last fall. Flora Macdonald had their 2011-12 1-A title taken away by the North Carolina Independent School Athletic Association in October. They were also banned from postseason play for three seasons, which included Rashed Anthony's senior season. It is also worthy to note that Anthony was originally a member of the 2012 class before reclassifying. None of this information is particularly damning, but we all know by now that the N.C.A.A. works in some very mysterious ways.

Assuming Rashed's is good to go, he will be slotted behind Patrik Auda and Brandon Mobley on the power forward depth chart for the upcoming 2013-14 season. Competing with Stephane Manga and Haralds Karlis for back-up minutes at the 3 is not out of question.

UPDATE (7/7, 4:30PM) - I have confirmed that Rashed Anthony is set to begin taking classes at Seton Hall starting tomorrow.

Here is an updated scholarship table with the addition of Rashed Anthony:
