Zach Anderson is still taking his time. He has taken some visits and been to colleges, but he isn’t ready to commit to a school or even a timeline to make a decision. For now, he just wants to gather information.
“I’m just getting a general idea about places,” Anderson said. “I just want something that fits for me and is a good fit for school and basketball.”
Anderson has the shooting skills to impress plenty of colleges. Recently he has been talking to Hanover, Wabash, Franklin, Alabama-Huntsville and Wittenberg. He has a visit planned for Hanover on October 15.
The colleges all see the same skills that have made him the No. 110 ranked prospect in the Prep Hoops Indiana Top 180. This starts with his shooting ability. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard has a quick release that he can hit with plenty of range to intrigue plenty of coaches.
“I just feel like I take a lot of smart shots instead of just throwing it up,” Anderson said. “I feel my is a lot higher than most people because I don’t use both hands to shoot, I normally just use one hand.”
That strong shot does come with a need to still get better at creating on his own. He has improved in that aspect and is also working to improve his defense.
“I’ve been doing a lot of agility drills outside of practice to get stronger and get quicker to be better defensively,” Anderson said.
This will not only help Anderson improve for a future college program, but also this upcoming season for Martinsville. The team has high goals with lots of talent returning this season.
“We’ve done a lot of just senior led stuff that me and a few other guys get all the guys together and we go in on our own,” Anderson said. “We’ve been working really hard setting goals together and just coming together as a team.”
