adidas Nations Experience: 2010/11 High School Prospects

We got two distinctively different impressions from watching Wisconsin commit Evan Anderson (#13 Scout, #21 Rivals, #14 ESPN) in two separate settings—one with his AAU team against a very weak group of players, and one at the adidas Nations. He’s clearly still trying to put everything together and it will be a ways until he’s able to justify his very high recruiting ranking, but we can definitely see where the intrigue is coming from.

Anderson is a thick, left-handed, 6-11 true center with an outstanding frame and a pair of exceptionally long arms and soft hands. That alone is half the battle at this stage in a big man’s development, but he has a little bit more to offer as well. Anderson has nice instincts as a shot-blocker, changing a good amount of shots around the rim with his superb length and fairly solid timing. He likes to operate with his back to the basket offensively, but really doesn’t have a whole lot to offer in terms of footwork or post moves at this juncture, which is fairly understandable. He gets fouled a lot in the paint, but isn’t able to convert on most of his free throw opportunities.

Anderson doesn’t run the floor all that well, he’s somewhat mobile but probably can’t be described as being particularly athletic, and seems to be liable to lapses in intensity as the game wears on. He doesn’t seem to go after every rebound, and got easily frustrated by the rough play he encountered in one particular occasion we saw him. He’s going to have problems staying out of foul trouble early on his career most likely, and generally should be considered a project at this point. Considering what he brings to the table with his physical attributes and budding skills, though, he’s obviously a guy to keep an eye on in the long-term.
