It looks like the Wisconsin Badgers will add some backcourt help, though the impact may be delayed a season.
UW-Green Bay freshman point guard Trevor Anderson announced on Twitter Wednesday evening that he will transfer to Wisconsin starting with the 2017-18 season. Due to NCAA transfer rules, he will have to sit next season but will be eligible to play in 2018-19.
Listed at 6’2, 190 pounds, Anderson played and started in 20 games last season, scoring 9.8 points per game and adding 2.9 rebounds and 2.65 assists per contest. His season ended prematurely after suffering a fractured back.
A Stevens Point native, Anderson was a standout prep player, earning in 2016 both the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association’s “Mr. Basketball” award given to the top in-state high school basketball player and the Wisconsin Associated Press’s Player of the Year award.
Leading Stevens Point Area High School (SPASH) to back-to-back WIAA Division I state championships from 2015-16, Anderson finished his career with the eighth-most points in Wisconsin high school basketball history (2,360). As many have noted, a hint of intrigue lies in the fact Anderson played at SPASH with UW target and highly-touted forward Joey Hauser, as well as Hauser’s older brother, Sam, who plays at Marquette.
Badger247’s Evan Flood reports Anderson will walk on to the program.
Last month, guard Jordan Hill announced his transfer from Wisconsin to Seattle University.
