Anthony Gaffney, a 6-foot-2, 170-pound football/basketball prospect from The Pennington School in Pennington, New Jersey, took an unofficial visit this past weekend to Maryland, according to his AAU basketball coach, Matt Pauls.

Gaffney, who competes for the basketball team at the shooting guard/small forward position, also played defensive back and running back this past season for The Pennington School football program.

Anthony has improved in both sports and is likely to land offers on a division one level in football and basketball.

Gaffney was taking this unofficial visit to the ACC program for the sport of football.

Anthony, who competes mostly at the shooting guard slot for Pauls' highly regarded program, Team NJABC, is also a very good student, opening up opportunities to be recruited by academic institutions.

Columbia, Yale, Princeton, Penn, Stony Brook, Lehigh, and Bucknell are some of the schools watching his basketball progress.
