I was starting to wonder if I was the only one seeing what this young man brings to the table. Anderson is a tough, unselfish worker who doesn’t need a ton of looks over the course of 40 minutes to make a huge impact on a game. He was the third leading scorer on an West Coast Elite team that featured Nico Mannion and Josh Green this summer. Yet, he was still able to average over 12 points per contest by shooting 50% from the field and 38% from 3. He knows how to create for himself by wearing his man down defensively and striking when the time is right. He can shoot it from distance with the best of them. At 6’7” with a strong frame, he’s versatile and athletic. In a strong class of New England Prep products, Trey Anderson is one of the best long-term prospects in 2019.
THE PROGRAM: South Carolina (SEC)
Frank Martin, baby! When you’ve got that man at the helm, your team is going to be fiery, passionate and tough as nails. They get after you defensively, rely on momentum-changing plays to create spurts and always leave the arena knowing that their opponent won’t look forward to seeing them the next time, regardless of the outcome.
THE FIT: PERFECT. Anderson embodies everything that Martin stands for and will give South Carolina a reliable weapon from the perimeter. Martin will get the best out of Anderson like he does with most of his athletes. The California-product might look like a dude who walked out of a Hollywood casting call but don’t let that fool you. Anderson is a gritty competitor and a player who’s willing to do whatever it takes to win. Martin will love him.
