PSA Guard Heading to MAAC

Putnam Science Academy post-graduate guard Anthony Durham made a verbal commitment to Rider on Wednesday and now plans to sign his National Letter of Intent during the late signing period.  

The six-foot-three guard came to New England after starring at Abington High School, just outside of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, where he averaged close to 15 points per game and first put his name on the division I radar.  

He’s been a critical component of a Putnam Science team that has emerged as one of the most pleasant surprises in all of prep school basketball with a current record of 19-2, leading the team in scoring and steals while being second in both assists and rebounds.  

Durham is a long and versatile guard who is equally capable of playing on or off the ball.  He’s good off the bounce and very adept at making plays in the open floor, an improved shooter from behind the three-point line, and a deceptive athlete who can rise up to play above the rim in a hurry.  

He also owns a six-foot-seven wingspan that gives him the potential to be a menace defensively, not only guarding the ball but also jumping into passing lanes and using his reach to get steals and deflections.  

Durham joins Chaise Daniels (Quinnipiac), Danny Upchurch (Charleston Southern) and Jordan Butler (Norfolk State) to become the third member of this year’s Putnam Science team to accept a division I scholarship offer.  

He also joins Hyde School big man Kenny Grant and St. Thomas More swingman Josh Williams to become the third New England prep product to commit to Rider in the 2014 recruiting class.
