We like to keep up with recruiting and occasionally we find a guy who is young but worth looking at more closely.

So with that, let’s check out young Anthony Saunders who lives and hoops in Northern Virginia just outside of D.C.

How young?

Saunders is 11.

Despite his tender years, he’s working towards his goal - to play at Duke or Syracuse - with a grown man’s intensity. We have total respect for the work this kid is putting in and we hope it pays off for him.
