Recruiting experts and bloggers all note his shooting prowess and defensive hustle. Before the summer season started, Stockrisers wrote about Anglin:
The 6-foot-2 combo has asserted himself as one of the best two-way guards on the east coast.
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.
A Syracuse blog reported interest from their staff, saying “the three-star Anglin isn’t highly ranked by some of the recruiting services [b]ut make no mistake about it, this young man can flat-out play” and that they’ve “read a flood of comments from analysts and other recruiting insiders that speak to Anglin’s extreme proficiency in shooting from beyond the arc” calling him “a high-energy prospect who also excels on the defensive end.” The SU blog also noted that he’s may be likely to “emerge as a four-star, top-100 player in the 2022 cycle when all is said and done”—you know, unless he picks Georgetown, right?
Not many better or more confident shooters in the 2022 class than Denver Anglin (@AnglinDenver).— Travis Branham (@TravisBranham_) June 26, 2021
Give him any space and he is going to pull-up and makes shots with range.
Anglin has indeed been making some noise this summer as part of NY Renaissance. The shooter has closed out several games and routinely been noted as a top player at this year’s Peach Jam.
This blog contributor, for one, is very excited about Denver Anglin as a shooter. His highlight videos show he can knock down open looks, as well as create his own shot.
Welcome to the Hilltop, Denver! HOYA SAXA!
