Dante Anderson's Three Favorites?

Dante Anderson, the 6-5, 185-pound guard from Eastside High School in Gainesville (FL), spoke with us here at InsideIllini.com about his recruitment and what schools make his top three. Read here for an update on Anderson.

Dante Anderson is a guard that is skyrocketing up the recruiting charts this spring. He's a top 60 recruit here at Scout.com and may climb even higher before the summer ends.

Anderson is a 2008 recruit that many suitors are starting to notice more. He has received a number of offers from some big time programs recently, but Illinois is in the mix. "I like Illinois. If I had to put together a list of school right now, Illinois definitely makes my top three list of schools. I just spoke with Coach Tracy Webster on Saturday. It was a great conversation, but it's the only time this month I can talk to him because they're only allowed one call per month," said Anderson.

Anderson already had a list that included Missouri, Virginia Tech, Florida State and Dayton. Now, according to Anderson, Georgia and Wake Forest are trying to come in late and talk with him.

Reports on Anderson say he's a kid that can score at will and gets better each time out. He's a big 6-4 guard that can play both the one and two positions on the floor. Coach Weber's teams play well when there's a nice mixture of guards that can all shoot or handle the basketball.

What's up next for Anderson? "This weekend I will probably take off from the AAU tournaments. We're having a benefit game for a coach that used to be involved with our program, so I will just stay home more than likely and play in that."

The Missouri Tigers is a team that's really making a strong push for his services. At this point I think it's safe to say the Tigers would make Anderson's top three schools.

"Whatever school I go to, I just want the chance to play. I think I can help teams right away my freshman year, so that will play a lot into my decision," said Anderson.
