Personal: Daughter of Marc Anthony and Michelle Lucero...younger sister of Jordan...older sister of Noah...intends to major in sociology... chose Maryland over UCLA, Texas and Miami

I chose Maryland because: "I felt at home when I took my visits to Maryland. I realized it was my dream school in terms of academics, atmosphere and athletically. The team is amazing and capable of winning a National Championship and that's one of my goals while in college."

Coach Morgan on Anthony: "Alex might be one of the most competitive kids I've ever come across. She loves to win and she loves to score goals! Alex always knows the score. One of the ECNL's leading goal scorers, Alex possesses the tools to score in a variety of ways. I've seen her score from distance, out of the air (headers and volleys), and off the dribble. Some of the goals she's been able to score in club have been the most amazing goals I've ever seen from a youth player. We can't wait to get her on campus."
