Juco PG Getting Attention

TXST is doing all they can to snag themselves a point guard who will compliment their system and set the precedent for the kind of players Coach Kaspar is looking to bring in. Enter this target.

Anthony Alston averaged 14 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds, and 1.5 steals per game on his way to being named to the first team All Region for the Arizona Western Matadors, while finishing third in the nation in free throw percentage at 85%.

"I'm the kind of player that thrives when i am providing high ball pressure and forcing the ball handler into rash decisions," said Alston about his style of play. "On offense i love to knife my way into the middle of the defense and force a second defender to collapse and create opportunities for my teammates and if there is no help i am going straight to the rim."

Coach Kaspar himself attended an open gym at Arizona Western on Wednesday, and is very adamant about having Alston as his point guard for next season. After a disappointing season the Texas State staff is pedal to the metal on recruiting and will not stand for a repeat.

"I would like to go to a school that understands what i am capable of and has an offense that will fit my style of play," said Alston. "I would also like to be able to have a good relationship with my coaches and feel like i can talk to them about anything."

UTSA is the only school so far that has officially extended an offer to Anthony, however UC Riverside, and North Texas are also interested in him. He's on the verge of locking up his visit for Texas State on March 28th, so to leave no doubt, he has a spot.

Kaspar is talking to Alston directly and it seems like he feels Alston is the perfect compliment to his defensive and offensive philosophy. He's also capable of giving them a very nice boost in free throws where the Bobcats really struggled last season.
