Carmelo Anthony's son, Kiyan gets Syracuse basketball offer

20 years ago, NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony led Syracuse to a national championship during the 2002-03 season.

On Sunday, Kiyan Anthony, the son of Carmelo, announced he received a scholarship from the Syracuse Orange.

Anthony is a 6'5 wing in the class of 2025 who currently attends Christ the King High School in New York. Anthony is the No. 62 overall player and No. 14 shooting guarding according to 247Sports' rankings of the 2025 class.

He also has offers from Bryant, George Mason, Memphis and Manhattan College.

The offer comes the same weekend the Anthony family visited the campus to watch the Syracuse football team stink it up and lose 38-3 to Florida State.

Anthony obviously has a ways to go before he needs to make a commitment, but has expressed love for the Orange.

Anthony told 247Sports:

"Syracuse is a big one for me because of my dad. He set the foundation over there so I won't go wrong if I went there. My options are really open, though, since I'm only a sophomore."

Definitely will be interesting to follow Anthony's commitment especially if Boeheim steps down before 2025.
