2011 Suttons Bay prospect Dwaun Anderson ready for season

ChippewaCountry recently caught up with 2011 Suttons Bay (MI) shooting guard Dwaun Anderson to get an update on his recruitment and his goals for his senior season. Anderson is being heavily recruited by in-state Big Ten programs such as Michigan and Michigan State, but has Central Michigan University is still at the top of his list. When asked what he thought about the CMU Basketball program, he responded,

"I feel good about the Central Michigan University basketball program, they are still at the top of my list," said Anderson "I just still haven't made a decision on what school I would like to attend."

When asked what he is looking for in a school besides basketball, Dwaun had the following to say.

"I just want to go somewhere, where I can fit in and feel comfortable."

Anderson is a very athletic shooting guard, standing at 6-foot-4, he is very explosive going to the rim and has a well refined shooting stroke that has impressed scouts and coaches at camps. Over the course of the summer Anderson played in several basketball camps, and he traveled a lot with his AAU team Parallel 45, which helped him develop his game a lot more.

"I feel like my game has progressed a lot, I went to New Jersey for AAU, and I really improved my game. I've been working on my free throws and shooting skills a lot, and overall, the summer has done much for me."

Though Anderson is well known for scoring and making spectacular plays on offense, he knows that once he gets to the next level, scoring isn't everything and you must be effective on the other end of the court.

"I've been working on my defense a lot; defense is something that any basketball player should always work on" said Anderson.

Last time ChippewaCountry saw Anderson in action was when his high school came to the campus and participated in a summer league camp, and he really showed off his skills against some of the top talent in the state, including 2010 Mount Pleasant guard/forward Trey Zeigler. Anderson carried his team throughout the tournament and displayed the all around game that has many pundits labeling him the top player in the state of Michigan for 2011. His skill set certainly explains why he named one of the NBA's top superstars as his favorite player.

"My favorite player is Dwayne Wade, I like the way that he attack the basket."

Helping CMU's cause is Anderson's relationship with Chippewas assistant coach, Darren Kohne. Kohne has been his main recruiter at CMU and he spoke highly of him.

"Coach Kohne is a great guy, and we have a pretty good relationship."

Even though Dwaun Anderson is being recruited by numerous colleges across the nation, he is still focused on his senior season and helping his team improve. When asked on his expectations for the upcoming season, he responded,

"I'm really ready to get out there on the court, our first practice is on the 16th, and I am looking forward to getting a few triple doubles and a lot of assist and rebounds," added Anderson. "I also want for our team to make it to the Breslin Center for the state championship."

Anderson currently holds offers from Central Michigan and Utah, while he is hearing most from Dayton, Michigan and Michigan State.
