He's not one to be particularly boisterous, but there's little question that Anthony Barber showed up at the NBPA Top 100 Camp looking to show off his entire arsenal.
During the first round of games in Charlottesville (Va.) the 6-foot-2 point five-star point guard from Hampton (Va.) High was as good as anybody in the building.
"Today, I think I played well," Barber told Rivals.com. "I'm coming in here with a great group of guys and I knew that it was going to be competitive."
It's not a surprise that the soft-spoken Barber would downplay what he did, but he could have given himself more credit. The rising senior was dominant with the ball in his hands daring defenders to stay in front of him, making plays for others and wearing out jumpers from 12 to 17 feet.
Barber -- who goes by the nickname of Cat -- did admit that he's aware of the high expectations people have for him and said that he wanted to prove that he's worthy of the high praise he gets.
"I just want to prove that I can play," said Barber. "There are a lot of people that think I'm a good player and I want to show that I'm that kind of player."
College coaches certainly feel the blazing fast floor general is a player. Barber rattled off a list of Kansas, Alabama, Virginia, Baylor, Florida State, Duke, Syracuse and Virginia Tech. With a contact period approaching, he knows that things will get hectic.
"It's going to be crazy but it's something that has to be handled," said Barber. "Me and my dad and my coaches will handle it and take the calls as they come in."
For now, Barber says that the plan is to cut his list of schools down to three or four at the end of the summer and then set up visits. While he stopped just short of calling them the flat out favorites, Barber did say that Kansas and Alabama were pushing themselves ahead of the crowd.
"I like Coach Dooley at Kansas a lot," said Barber. "They've called and talked to me a lot and we've gotten to feeling each other out a lot better. Alabama is the same way."
