At about 6-foot-8 and 255 pounds, Anya, who is a Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha Catholic standout has been a scoring machine on the low block. The class of 2013 center dominated at the Pitt Jam Fest after a good showing at the Nike EYBL.
"I get to go against some of the best players in the country and it is a great feeling," said Anya of his start to the travel circuit. "The guys are all pushing me to get better every day. My post moves are getting better, and I am just trying to get buckets."
When it comes to recruiting it should be no surprise that his school list is very long and reads like a who's who of college basketball.
At the moment Anya is listening to the recruiting pitches and is honored to be getting all of the early attention, but at the same time it isn't a major focus for him.
"I am just trying to focus on getting better right now," Anya explained about where he stands in the recruiting process. "I am going to take my visits next year and will figure out then what school I will be at."
When the time is right for Anya to take a close look at which school he will attend, it is going to be important for him to find a place that knows how to use a true post player.
"I am looking for a school where they like to help a big man get better and work him into the offense that will be the most important thing," Anya explained.
Currently Anya is a three-star prospect, but look for him to make a major jump in the rankings when they are updated in the near future.
