CARROLLTON, GA – Coach Dave Moore has added his fifth signee of the 2019 recruiting season. The newest addition is expected to be a key contributor in the Wolves’ backcourt next season.
Moore has announced the signing of transfer Oronte Anderson, a point guard from Gordon State College. Anderson is 5-9, 175 pounds, and a product of New Hempstead High School in his hometown of Savannah.
“Oronte is very quick, a water bug,” says Moore of his newest signee. Despite his size, Moore says his newest Wolf brings explosiveness to the UWG attack, “He has the ability to score at all three levels. Oronte has the ability to be a factor for us this season.”
Anderson posted impressive numbers a year ago at Gordon State. He led the Highlanders in both scoring (13.9 ppg) and in assists with 6.6 per contest. Anderson shot better than 45% from the field, and hit 40.4% (44-109) from three-point. Also, he was excellent at the free throw line, hitting better than 82% from the charity stripe.
Anderson is the fifth signee of West Georgia’s 2019 recruiting class. Two are from Gordon State. UWG earlier signed 6-5 wing player Seth Brown-Carter, a native of McDonough who played the previous two seasons alongside Anderson. UWG has also added 6-6 forward Kovi Tate, a transfer from North Greenville, and also a native of McDonough.
West Georgia’s other two recruits are high school players. The Wolves last fall signed 6-7 forward Keshawn Heard of Newark High in Ohio. Earlier this spring Moore inked 5-11 guard Rodney Wiley of Cincinnati’s Colerain High School.
Moore says that he is continuing to work to complete the Wolves’ recruiting class for the upcoming season.
