Recruiting Report: CaRondis Harris-Anderson (2018)
Though his recruitment has yet to begin, Waterloo West’s young guard Carondis Harris-Anderson has plenty of time left to dazzle prospective college coaches, and for now, he’s fine with his lack of recruitment.
“I’m not really focused on that, I’m focused on being a better player and becoming a better person, and if they come they come,” said Harris-Anderson. “I’m focused on working on my game and just getting better.”
This offseason while playing with Martin Brothers 15U, Harris-Anderson said it was his leadership that he worked to improve.
“The thing I thought I did best was being a good teammate, keeping my teammates motivated to do better, and to never back down from other teams,” said Harris-Anderson. “I thought I set the tone defensively for my team, and I feel like my ball-handling and my perimeter game improved too.”
The 6-foot-3 wing says that versatility is one of his best strengths right now, and that moving forward he sees himself morphing into a point guard.
“I don’t classify myself as any position right now, I can play the post and play the perimeter. In college I see myself as more of a guard, probably a point guard,” said Harris-Anderson.
“My strengths are my defense, court-vision, dribble-drive, attacking the basket, and using my athleticism — things like that. I still need to work on my overall guard work though, like ball-handling and seeing the floor.”
After a successful freshman campaign, one in which he averaged 7.3 points, and 3.1 rebounds, Harris-Anderson says his production will need to improve this season — especially with the departure of Northern Iowa’s Lincoln Conrey.
“My role this year is to be a leader,” he said. “The expectation for me is to keep getting better and to keep growing as a player, and just be better than last year.”
