Anthony Salazar, a 6-foot-4 forward from Hialeah, FL, is transferring from Champagnat Catholic High School to play at Archbishop Carroll for his junior campaign.
Coming off a Class 2A district title, averaging 8.6 points and 5 rebounds per game, Salazar says his decision to leave the Lions was “because it was a better opportunity for me on and off the court,” he told 305Sports.
“The biggest thing I’m going to bring to the table is leadership,” the class of 2022 prospect added. “[I’m] definitely pushing and motivating my team and playing my hardest every game.”
Salazar wasn’t the only player transferring to Archbishop Carroll this offseason, as former Chapel Hill High School (Douglasville, GA) standout and Georgia first-team All-State selection, Micah Bell will also be joining the Bulldogs program.
“I think that he and I will be very connected on the court playing together,” Salazar mentioned. “I think our chemistry is gonna be nice when we play together.”
Former Coral Gables Senior High forward Jimel Lane also announced that he’s transferring to Carroll Tuesday.
With a loaded 2020-21 schedule ahead of them, which includes matchups against top South Florida teams such as St. Andrew’s, Calvary Christian, Westminster Academy, Westminster Christian and Riviera Prep, Salazar hopes to bring his winning ways to his new school.
“[Our] team goal is just to push each other every day to our limits, make each other better and win a chip.”
