Coming into the spring Damezi Anderson only had one high-major offer. Now more offers and interest are piling up. The athletic shot maker from South Bend is having an excellent few weeks on the EYBL, and continues to show the natural talent that makes him such an intriguing prospect.
"The spring has been going well," said Anderson. "I think I have been playing alright, but I think I can continue to play better."
He continued, "I am just trying to show how much my all-around game has improved, and that I can do more than just make shots from outside."
About the newest offers, Anderson said, "It felt good to get those offers. I have been waiting for them for the longest time, so it just felt good."
Beyond the offers, some new schools also reached out and began the recruiting process.
DePaul is only located a little more than two hours from Anderson's home, and he was excited to land the offer from the Blue Demons.
"I don’t know too much about them," said Anderson of the Blue Demons. "They haven’t talked to me too much, but I know it is close to home and I like that, and also that they said I could come in and play right away."
When it comes to Connecticut, Anderson said, "I know that UConn has won several national championships. They just tell me to keep getting better and that they will recruit me as hard as any prospect in the country."
The school that has done the most work recruiting Anderson so far is Purdue, and he continues to build a strong relationship with the school.
"They just tell me that I can be a special player if I go there," noted Anderson. "They want me there, and I know that Purdue is a good program and a good school."
For now Anderson is in no hurry to make a decision, and he plans to make some visits before coming to a final decision.
