Damezi Anderson is an elite student-athlete currently attending Riley High School in South Bend, Indiana. Ranked #93 for the class of 2018 per Rivals, Anderson showed he has all the tools of a prototypical wing this Spring/Summer with his play for the Indy Hoosiers on the Under Armor Association circuit. Damezi is a high major talent and his combination of scoring instincts to put up points in a hurry, size and athleticism, and touch from deep has made him a stock riser on the recruiting front with high major programs looking to land the 6’6 wing.
