SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah State Aggies guard Marco Anthony announced that he will follow his head coach Craig Smith to the University of Utah.

Anthony committed to the Runnin’ Utes on Tuesday, April 20.

The guard entered the NCAA Transfer Portal on April 12.

Smith was hired to be Utah’s head coach in late March.

“LETS GO,” Anthony posted on Twitter. He tagged Smith and Utah Basketball in the tweet.

Anthony is the second Utah State player to follow Smith to Utah. Earlier in April, former USU guard Rollie Worster announced his commitment to the Runnin’ Utes.
