Mark Anderson

Position PF Height 6-8 Weight 200 School Dunbar/Sinclair CC Hometown Dayton Incoming Year 2009
Offered By Miami, Cleveland State, Ohio

Initially posted by NickSkin on 03/15/06 at 12:52 pm

2009 PROSPECT: Mark is the 3rd option for the Dunbar Wolverines.  However, that doesn't mean he isn't an incredible talent.  Dunbar's first two options are 2G Daequan Cook (Ohio State) and man-child Aaron Pogue (Class of 2007).  Mark has really improved his game and continues to improve.  He has a very nice outside shot and can also play inside.  Needs to add weight to play inside in college but has terrific anticipation and can jump out of the gym.  Some team will get a steal with Anderson as he's a hidden gem playing with some other terrific talent.  Youtube Video #32 UPDATE: (4.10.08) Mark just completed his Freshman year at Sinclair CC and helped lead Sinclair to a 24-6 record.  Rival$ Profile ***

"People don’t believe me, but Mark can do everything Daequan Cook (teammate and five-star prospect) can. He is even longer than Cook, but doesn’t have the moxy yet.”
-Peter Pullen, Dunbar H.S. Head Coach
