Kiyan Anthony

Kiyan Anthony, a four-star guard in the 2025 class received an offer from West Virginia on Friday night. Anthony is the son of 10-time NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony.

Anthony announced the offer on his social media accounts.

“Blessed to receive an offer from West Virginia University,” Anthony wrote on Twitter.

Anthony (6-foot-4) currently plays for Long Island Lutheran in New York. Anthony has received offers from Bryant, Dayton, Florida State, George Mason, Illinois, Indiana, Manhattan, Massachusetts, Memphis, Michigan, Pitt, Providence, Seton Hall, Syracuse, Tennessee, UCF, West Virginia and others. It’s unknown if Kiyan will follow in his father’s footsteps and go to Syracuse or if he’ll create his own journey.

Anthony is ranked as a top 50 prospect in the 2025 class.

West Virginia has offered many talented players in the junior class including Cooper Flagg, Alier Maluk, EJ Walker, Jasper Johnson and others. WVU’s coaching staff made direct contact with the 2025 class back in June, as the staff can now contact the recruits.

WVU most recently offered four-star forward Amari Allen. Allen is being recruited by WVU assistant Jordan McCabe. McCabe watched Allen in Memphis this month. Allen now plays at IMG Academy down in Florida.
