Bloomington High School South shooting guard Anthony Leal is down to two his final two schools. He announced on Twitter that he will decide between his hometown school Indiana and Stanford University. Currently, the Hoosiers do not have any commitments in the 2020 class.

Leal, a four-star shooting guard, is currently the 96th overall player and ranked as the 19th best shooting guard of the 2020 class according to the 247Sports Composite. He is the highest ranked player in the state of Indiana for the 2020 class and will be one of the front-runners for next year’s Indiana Mr. Basketball.

Anthony Leal has previously mentioned that he will make a decision prior to the fall of 2019, specifically before the beginning of his high school deason. Cutting down his list to a final two is a significant development. Indiana and Stanford not only are distant from each other on the map, but they are characteristically different enough to be on polar ends.

Indiana is a program in his backdoor (almost literally) with deep basketball traditions. Both of his parents also are affiliated with the university. Stanford on the other hand, is at the top of colleges academically and is far further than a 10 minute car ride from home.

For either school, expect Leal to immediately add depth at the guard position and another shooter. Although he may not necessarily be considered a day one starter as a freshman, he already has the size and weight to develop into a very effective multi-year collegiate player.

Incoming Indiana freshman Trayce Jackson-Davis has continued to recruit his fellow in-state players. The 2019 Indiana Mr. Basketball quickly shared his perspective on their recruitment.
