Through three games at Under Armour's first All-America Camp, Maryland commit Anthony Cowan is proving to be among the top players in attendance.
The 6-foot, 170 pound, rising high school senior is catching attention from some of the biggest reporters in college basketball:
Love watching Maryland commit Anthony Cowan. Terrific point guard. @notthefakeSVP— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) July 9, 2015
Have no idea where Anthony Cowan is ranked, but Maryland has a steal in the St.John's (DC) point guard. Wow.— Fran Fraschilla (@franfraschilla) July 9, 2015
His numbers have been outstanding as well, as he is currently the camp's second leading scorer at 22.7 per game, tied for the best assister at 8.7 per game, and tied for 16th leading rebounder at 5.7 per game.
It's easy to see that the undersized point guard has no trouble compensating for his height, using his quickness and high-IQ to facilitate the offense.
He's also shown to be an efficient shooter in his three games in Charlotte while playing against some of the nation's top high school talent, including 247Sports no. 2 and no. 10 recruits for the class of 2016; Josh Jackson and Thon Maker, and no. 1 and no. 7 recruits for the class of 2017; DeAndre Ayton and Trevor Duval.
Cowan is shooting 53.1 percent from the field, hitting 7 of 16 shots from three-point range and has been getting to free throw line with ease, something current Maryland point guard Melo Trimble does to perfection. Cowan is shooting 77.1 percent from the free throw line – probably the only statistic of real meaning from this short camp – and has taken a total 35 of them, including 23 in one game alone.
Cowan appears to be another impressive get for newly-praised recruiter Mark Turgeon.
