Chase for JC Point Guard Down to Three

As the spring signing period continues, many of the top junior college prospects have gone off the board. As the pool of top-level candidates shrinks, those that are left are finalizing their last visits and preparing for the important decision to come. For Trey Anderson, this coming week will be the critical one for his playing future.

Trey Anderson began his playing career for the St. Mary's Gaels, first as a redshirt and then as a seldom-used backup on their Sweet Sixteen squad. After a transfer to Neosho County Community College, however, Anderson has blossomed into a coveted player. At NCCC this past season, he stuffed the stat sheet with 19.9 points, 7.2 rebounds and 7.6 assists per game. No wonder that he now has three programs in hot pursuit.

In late March Anderson visited South Alabama and last week spent two days at Missouri State. On Monday, April 25 he will take his final trip to Stony Brook and then hopes to make his decision soon after.

Anderson, who is a 4.0 student, has designs on a career as a physician after he is done with his undergraduate years. With that in mind, the staff at USA arranged for him to meet with some of the staff at their well-respected medical school. If he attends South Alabama, those staff members will be available to help guide him towards his goal of becoming a doctor. Stony Brook also has a medical program and will likely have something similar to offer. While Missouri State does not have a medical program, the are still very much a candidate for Anderson's services.

"I had a good visit while I was there," said Anderson. "My cousin is (Missouri State forward) Kyle Weems' roommate, so I had fun hanging out with the team. They're a bunch of good guys."

To this point, Anderson is not ready to annoint a favorite. When he returns home on Wednesday evening from his visit to Stony Brook, he expects to make his final decision. JagsJungle.com will bring you that decision as soon as it becomes available.
