I am a UNC fan and god knows we need Cole to commit (and it's looking likely) BUT if I were him I'd likely commit to Georgetown (there is no way he goes Notre Dame or Miami) and Oregon has a nice roster but likely with too many mouths to feed

The way it's looking G'Town with Cole > UNC with Cole in 2019-20 and they have better complimentary talent as well (way better shooting, better athletes)

If I were him I'd be pulling every string possible to graduate at the semester and get into this draft, where he'd probably be picked in the top 3.

He's such a terribly overrated prospect. Telfair redux

He would have had to graduate last June to be able to pull that off

Are you working under the assumption that Coby is gone? Even if he is, Georgetown is kinda a dumpster fire. You will see it soon, they are struggling to beat trash teams.

If I were him it’s UNC or ND if Coby is staying. If Coby is gone then it is ND or Oregon. Mike Brey has had a lot of PGs play really well for him that don’t touch Anthony’s talent.

If Coby stays and we get Cole, that dog will hunt regardless of if we miss on Hurt and Brooks.

Bumping this thread to share Ben Rubin's breakdown on Cole

https://www.thestepien.com/2019/07/23/draft-notes-cole-anthony-future-consensus-1-pick/

Great article. Most intriguing stuff for me has to be his FT numbers. I think there's maybe some reason for trepidation about Cole's upper body strength but for right now it's worth noting just how often he gets there and produces once he does.



I really hate highlight reels but thought it might be worth posting something like this since the thread's been dead for close to a year.

I read that article yesterday, the author makes a good case that Cole is being slept on. We'll see if his heretofore elite ability to get to the free throw line and convert holds up this year.

biggest problem with Cole is that he just looks really small...even at the HS level he looks small and I dont mean height more stature/frame

He's already a PG through and through (even a pass-first one on his HS team), so I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean.

not sure how his outside shooting stats are but the way he attacks the rim reminds me of deron williams and if he has an outside shot that might be a better comp for him overall. he's not as stocky but absorbs a lot of contact. i don't really see the rose comparisons. not saying cole isn't athletic; rose is in the supreme/westbrook level imo. i think rose is still faster both laterally and downcourt and his shift is quicker.

I'm a Cole fan, curious to see how he translates to the college game and what it could possibly do to his stock but i think he has the goods for the NBA-style of play.
