Badgers Basketball: Green Bay freshman guard Trevor Anderson tweets he will transfer to Wisconsin

Wisconsin fortifies its future guard depth with Green Bay Phoenix freshman guard Trevor Anderson announcing he's going to transfer to play for the Badgers.

MADISON – Trevor Anderson turned down a preferred walk-on offer from the University of Wisconsin out of high school to take a full scholarship offer from Green Bay.

Now, as he calls it, he’s taking a leap of faith for a second chance to fulfill a lifelong dream.

After just one season with Green Bay, Anderson made a surprising announcement Wednesday that he was leaving the Phoenix program and transferring to Wisconsin.

The 6-2 Anderson will have to sit out the 2017-18 season, per N.C.A.A. transfer rules. He will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.

Anderson – the 2016 Wisconsin Mr. Basketball winner – started the first 20 games of the season for the Phoenix before missing the final 12 with a fracture back.

Anderson averaged 9.8 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 20 outings, scoring in double figures his first five games and had a career-high 23 points in a win over SIUE in December.

He scored 2,360 points during standout high school career, which is the eighth-most points in the history of Wisconsin high school basketball. Helping Stevens Point to a second straight division-1 state title, playing alongside Sam Hauser (Marquette) and current five-star 2018 prospect Joey Hauser, Anderson averaged 24.6 points, 4.4 assists, 64 percent shooting (FG), 87.6 percent shooting (FT) as a senior, also shot 55 percent from 3-point range (66-120).

It’s not known whether Anderson will be on scholarship or not.
