At the beginning of each new year, Phenom Hoops works to assemble a series of articles centered around unsigned senior prospects. Last season, hundreds of players from North Carolina went on to play at the Division I, II, III or NAIA levels, and that number looks likely to continue increasing with the current senior class. Typically, we take a closer look at guys who are overlooked and underrated, and today’s edition will highlight Anthony Sellars of Quality Education.

We’ve seen Sellars since his middle-school days, recently stating, “It should come as no surprise to see Sellars listed, as he was clearly one of the most enticing prospects in the gym. He’s long, wiry, and a powerful athlete with a natural set of tools and clear upside remaining on both ends of the floor. Sellars was arguably the most explosive player on display and, at 6-foot-6, has no issue showcasing his aerial abilities. He can score the ball from all levels and understands how to create for himself or operate within the flow of the action. Sellars is great in transition and utilizes his second burst to rebound the ball well from inside the paint.” Later followed by, “Despite struggling with injuries throughout the season, there’s still plenty to like about Sellars and his overall toolkit. He’s a long, wiry, explosive wing/forward prospect with the ability to consistently make an impact in the open floor. Sellars typically works without the ball and looks to apply pressure as a finisher, whether through penetration or as a cutter, but can also knock down jumpers if necessary. He’s a useful defender but still has a ton of upside remaining on that side of the ball, especially in terms of versatility. Sellars is a capable rebounder and can push the break in transition. Although already an enticing piece, folks should still be able to see the long-term appeal with Sellars.”

Since then, Sellars has only continued to further solidify himself as a scholarship-worthy prospect. He’s a long, athletic wing/forward who excels in transition and looks to attack the basket at every possible opportunity. However, Sellars has shown the ability to knock down jumpers from midrange or beyond the arc at a respectable percentage. He utilizes his length to grab rebounds, force turnovers, and finish above opposing defenders around the basket. Sellars understands how to make the extra pass, but looks to take advantage of scoring chances whenever available. He should be able to carve out a nice role at the next level.
