2022's Denver Anglin discusses his high-major recruitment

February 18, 2021

I’ve mentioned the extreme talent level that’s blossoming in the state of New Jersey. You’ve already got several powerhouse programs, high-level players, etc. Gill St. Bernard’s has one of the hidden gem prospects in the entire state, his name is Denver Anglin. The 6-foot-2 combo has asserted himself as one of the best two-way guards on the east coast.

Just two days ago, Anglin powered Gill St. Bernard’s to a 19-point victory where he would finish with 30 points and 10 assists in the victory. Anglin showed his multi-dimensional offensive game and fluid shooting as he sunk five threes in the win. 

Anglin gives you a very nice combination of skill and being vocal. He’s always one of the loudest players on the floor but also brings you elite skills on both ends of the floor. Speed, great playmaker, can score on all levels and is also a very capable defender. I’d expect him to add more muscle before his departure to college, but, he has thrived and is deserving of much more attention.

This summer, he will play his AAU basketball with the NY Renaissance. I expect him to create tons of buzz playing with them this Spring and summer, and only time will tell.

As for his recruitment, he holds 10+ scholarship offers including TCU, Stanford, Georgetown, Ole Miss, George Washington, New Mexico, etc. I believe that list will grow and Anglin discussed his recruitment and which programs are expected to enter the mix with

Which programs are heavily involved in your recruitment?

“There are a number of schools that are involved right now. Schools like Stanford, Georgetown, TCU, Georgia Tech, George Washington, and others are very involved at the moment.”

I’m sure plenty are interested, if so, which schools have interest?

“Schools that are interested and have gained interest in me lately are Georgia, Villanova, Howard, Marquette, Northwestern, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Xavier, Yale, and many more to name.”

Stanford recently became your first Pac-12 offer, thoughts on that?

“They have probably had the best education in the country and they have a strong team. They play in the Pac-12 and are on the top half of the conference every single season.”

Georgetown offered you last November, where do things stand with them?

“Coach Ewing is probably one of the better coaches because he has gone to the highest level and succeeded so he knows the work you have to put in to get to the highest level of basketball. Georgetown has a great education program as well and they are slowly building back their team for the upcoming seasons.”

TCU has also offered you as of late, thoughts on them and their system?

“They play in a great conference (Big-12) and they fight every year against the top teams in the country, it seems like every night they play against the best of the best. Their playstyle is very free and they also try to run a three-guard offense so that they can really run the break. Overall it is a great school.”

When will you take the next steps in your recruitment, aka cut list or commit?

“I don’t think I’m going to cut my list until later this year and I think I’m going to end up committing my senior year. The reason I’m waiting is to see the other opportunities that I can probably receive and make a difference with my decision.”

Describe your game and how your play has been this season so far?

“I think of myself as a three-level scorer because I can get to the basket, hit a pull-up jumper, and knock down a three-point shot. I also think I can get my teammates involved very well and another part of my game that is very strong is that I’m a verbal leader and communicate with my guys.

That being said, I could be getting them to the right spot, holding everyone including myself accountable, and encouraging my teammates to play their best every time they touch the court.”
