No Offer Yet But UCONN Stays High On List

Antonio Anderson has the Connecticut program very high on his list

Despite no scholarship offer, strong lead guard Antonio Anderson continues to keep the Connecticut basketball program high on his list. The UCONN staff has already scouted Anderson several times this summer and likely will decide sometime in the next two to three weeks on whether they will offer him.

Anderson, a 6-foot-5, 185-pound combo guard/wing forward from Maine Central Institute, is an athlete who has plenty of spring in his step and bounce in his jump. He can climb over big bodies inside for slams.

Anderson also moves well to the basket. He can drive to the basket with power against the bigger sized defenders. It's clearly one of the main reasons why several major schools are recruiting the high-energy guard.

Anderson is also a solid defender and does have a big intensity level on the emotion side. He works hard at both ends of the court.

Besides Connecticut, St. Joseph's, Marquette, Miami, Clemson, St. John's, Akron, UMass, Memphis, and now Missouri are high on his list. Though Connecticut has yet to offer, the other schools on his list have.

Anderson previously attended Lynn Tech in Lynn, Massachusetts. He is the younger brother of Massachusetts point guard Anthony Anderson.
