Anthony Batson signs with Stanford men’s basketball

High school class of 2024 recruit Anthony Batson signed with Stanford on Tuesday, according to a press release by the school. A six-foot-three guard from Notre Dame Preparatory School in Scottsdale, Ariz., Batson averaged 22.1 points per game and 6.3 rebounds his senior year of high school. He also shot 62% from the field and over 45% from beyond the arc this past season.

“Anthony Batson is a welcomed addition to our program. He has always had a strong desire from an early age to be at Stanford,” said Stanford head coach Kyle Smith. 

Batson chose Stanford over Arizona State, Colorado State, Nevada and Rice, where he was previously commited. 

“Anthony is a dynamic scorer. He makes threes and possesses an athletic burst which enables him to play at and above the rim,” Smith said. “His length and explosiveness should provide us with a defensive playmaker on the perimeter as well.”

The Cardinal’s 2024 recruiting class now includes four players: Batson, six-foot-seven Evan Stinson, six-foot-eight Donavin Young and six-foot-11 Tallis Toure.
