Utah State Adds Virginia Transfer Marco Anthony
LOGAN, Utah – The Utah State men’s basketball program announced the addition of Marco Anthony, a transfer from Virginia.
Anthony will have to sit out for the 2019-20 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in the 2020-21 season.
He played 22 games last season for the Cavaliers, who won the national championship. The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 1.2 points and 0.5 rebounds per game in 5.4 minutes per game.
“We are thrilled to announce that Marco will be joining the Aggies!” Utah State head coach Craig Smith said. “Marco is a bright young man with a tremendous future ahead of him. At 6’4-6’5 and 220 pounds, he brings great size and athleticism. Marco is very skilled and brings versatility to our team. Above all, he fits our culture as a program and should thrive in Cache Valley.”

Also, the unknown if big man Neemias Queta will be with the program after his sophomore season or if he will make the jump to the NBA.
