Anthony Polite is an athletic, energetic swingman that could project into a 3 and D role in the NBA. He is having a solid junior season this year, and he recently scored 22 points and he made 4 three-pointers in his team’s second round win over Colorado in the 2021 NCAA Tournament. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate in the 2022 draft.
