Northfield Mount Hermon's Ivy League tradition continued Thursday night, as 2013 small forward Anthony Dallier committed to Yale, according to his head coach John Carroll.
Dallier becomes the 17 player from the school's program to commit to an Ivy League school in the last five seasons.
The 6-foot-6 Dallier is a well-balanced player, who can run the offensive with his passing ability and connect from behind the arc.
"He's an unbelievable teammate, guys love playing with him," said Carroll in a phone interview on Thursday night. "He is very smart about his teammate's opportunity versus his own opportunity. He picks the best opportunity almost every time."
Carroll described Dallier as an underrated defender, especially on the perimeter and pointed to Northfield Mount Hermon's second game of the season, when Dallier held Providence-recruit, Ricky Ledo scoreless.
"He a phenomenal defender and I think that gets overlooked with him," said Carroll. "He was our best perimeter defender last year."
"When you get a guy like coach [James] Jones, who loves tough defensive guys, Anthony is going to fit right in with their style."
Dallier averaged 11 points, six boards and four assists per game for the NEPSAC AAA champions. He joins a Bulldog team that finished 19-10 (9-5) in 2011-2012.
Dallier is now the second NMH player this month to land at an Ivy League school; Pete Miller announced he would attend Princeton on Aug. 1.
Tommy Carpenter, a 2012 forward picked Dartmouth this time last year, while incoming post-grad Zena Edosomwan (Harvard-Westlake School/North Hollywood, CA) will attend Harvard.
"The whole program is filled with good kids, who are academically motivated," said Carroll. "And are really good basketball players."
