2011 prospect Dwaun Anderson receiving more interest

ChippewaCountry.com recently caught up with Suttons Bay's talented basketball prospect in Dwaun Anderson to get an update on both his season and recruitment.

Regarded as one of the top wing prospects in the 2011 in-state class, Dwaun stands 6-foot-4, has a nice mixture of talent, including a nice stroke from the outside, and displays rare jumping ability. What makes Dwaun even more intriguing is that he is very young still, as he is only a junior in high school, and he still has time to refine his game through another summer on the AAU circuit and at camps.

Suttons Bay High School is located in an area that isn't necessarily known as a basketball hotbed, although that area has been kind to the Chippewas program in the past. Due to that, Anderson has flown under the radar a bit, but that might be changing as the Norseman are playing very well. Anderson and Suttons Bay are off to a terrific start as they currently sit at 13-1 overall, and they are making some noise as a serious title contender in Class C.

"Everything is going well so far," said Anderson. "We are trying to make it to the Breslin Center for the state title."

Through 14 games, Anderson is averaging a team leading 21 points per game and he feels very confident that his team is a state title contender this year. Earlier this season, he torched Leland High School for a triple double, and although he is known for his highlight dunks, Anderson loves to distribute the ball to his teammates.

It is traits like his unselfishness that have schools from around the country making the trek into Northern Michigan for a glimpse at Anderson.

Anderson already has offers from Central Michigan, Utah, and Oakland University. He is also getting looks from Michigan, Michigan State, Villanova, Purdue, Dayton, and Penn State. Anderson's main recruiter at CMU is assistant coach Darren Kohne.

"Coach Kohne is a cool guy," said Anderson. "He's real down to earth and a nice person to talk to."

With numerous schools staying in touch with him and his interest picking up nationally, the junior has yet to narrow anything down and is still letting things play out in the beginning stages of his recruitment.

"I haven't narrowed down my list yet or decided on what university I will attend. Right now I am just focused on our team and improving my game, particularly shooting the ball more."

Dwaun Anderson will continue to be one of the top targets for Central Michigan in the 2011 class. Look for more updates on him in the future.
