Point guard Avery Anderson weighs in on Texas, TCU, SMU

ST. LOUIS – A playmaking lead guard with a great feel and passing skills, Avery Anderson sits as one of the top point guard prospects throughout the South. The class of 2019 guard has seen two schools separate themselves early on.

Anderson spoke on the current state of his recruitment.

“Things are going great. I have a lot of schools interested in me but the two offers that I have are TCU and SMU,” said Anderson, who is running with the RM5 Elite 17-under team this summer.

Kansas State, Baylor, Iowa, Oklahoma State and Texas are a few others showing interest. Anderson broke down his two offers and his thoughts on UT.

TCU: “They have a nice guard play with Jaylen Fisher. I know that they are recruiting a lot of guards and I know once Jaylen Fisher leaves, they will need guards to bring in.”

SMU: “They think that I could be the next star on their team, so that is why they want me. They are recruiting me hard. SMU was the first school to contact me on June 15. It means a whole lot.”

Texas: “I talked to them once. They were just telling me that they liked the way that I play and that they want to stay in touch. I am going to try and visit Texas in July, I think.”


Last Monday, Anderson took another visit to TCU, a school located less than an hour’s drive from his home. A visit to Texas could take place before the July evaluation periods begin in two weeks.


Anderson plays with a ton of confidence and toughness in the backcourt which equates to solid production on the court. He is an efficient playmaker that can also defend, all of which makes him a top recruit within his region.

Already slotted as a top-100 prospect in the 2019 class, expect for the majority of the SEC and Big 12 schools to pursue Anderson, though SMU and TCU may have a leg up on the competition.
