Dwaun Anderson Commits to MSU!

(Bumped - Couple this with the loss of Herzog (more on that later), and our basketball program's reached steady state today - Pete)

The Michigan State basketball team received its second verbal commitment for 2011 from Dwaun Anderson of Suttons Bay, MI.   MSU made a full offer today during a visit to East Lansing and Anderson committed the same day. 

Anderson is a 6’3” wing guard who may be able to handle some point guard duties at the next level. His strength is his athleticism and he is being brought in to provide the explosive playmaking that MSU has received from players like Durrell Summers, Shannon Brown, and Jason Richardson.  Though an under-the-radar prospect on many levels, Anderson burst onto the scene last year with a big-time performance against 2010 four-star Trey Zeigler.  ESPN caught on as well, stating that Dwaun’s days as a sleeper prospect had come to an end.  Though his shooting technique is inconsistent right now, most observers feel he’ll have no problem being an effective college shooter with more coaching.  Anderson led his team to the Class C State Championship game as a junior and was coached against top competion in AAU basketball by in-state bball guru Steve Bell, an enthusiastic supporter .  It was widely reported that Anderson had to improve academically to ensure eligibility at MSU and his success is a testament to his commitment and work ethic.  He had been offered by other schools such as CMU, Oakland, and Utah, but was focusing on earning his offer from Coach Izzo and becoming a Spartan.  Obviously, Dwaun Anderson should be a great addition to the basketball program.  For anyone concerned about stars and rankings, I say trust in Izzo and click some links.  Dwaun Andeson is legit. 

Going forward, MSU still has two more scholarships to offer for 2011 and is looking looking closely at uncommitted players suchs as Jeremiah Davis (PG), Brandan Dawson (Wing), Tommie McCune (WF/PF), Amir Williams (C), and Mike Shaw (PF).  2012 Ohio star Kenny Kaminski (WF) has also narrowed his schools to MSU, Indiana, and OSU, and will decide at the end of the summer.   Based on the current roster, Izzo has great versatility in how he uses those remaining two spots.
