Marquette adds Amin Carter and Sacar Anim

April 27th, 2015 | by Van Coleman

Steve Wojciechowski and his Marquette staff completed their 2015 class this past week with the signing of two top notch guard prospects in 6-0 point Amin Carter and 6-5 swing man Sacar Anim. Both signed and returned their LOI’s to play for the Golden Eagles next fall.

Prep standout Traci Carter (Philadelphia/Life Center Academy) has signed a National Letter of Intent with the Marquette University men’s basketball program, head coach Steve Wojciechowski announced Wednesday morning.

Carter, a 6-0, 160-pounder, will arrive on campus this summer and have four years of eligibility with the Golden Eagles.

“We feel that Traci is one of the top point guards in the United States,” Wojciechowski said. “He is a skilled ball-handler and passer and he makes the players around him better.”

The Philadelphia native recently competed his senior campaign at Life Center Academy in Burlington, N.J. under head coach Pervis Ellison. He averaged 16.0 points, 7.0 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 4.0 steals per game in 2014-15 and was tabbed first team all-independent. Carter was also a McDonald’s All-American Game nominee and was named the program’s most valuable player.

Carter helped Life Center Academy to over 40 victories in his two seasons and the team claimed the top ranking among independent teams within the state of New Jersey. He concluded his prep career with over 1,000 points and was tabbed the top player in the Hoop Hall Classic.

Carter began his career at Roman Catholic High School in Philadelphia, Pa., before transferring to Life Center Academy after the 2012-13 campaign. He averaged 7.6 points per game for the Cahillites as a sophomore and has competed on the AAU circuit for We-R1 and the squad claimed the Under Armour Association Championship in 2014.

“We are pleased to announce the additions of Sacar and Traci to the Marquette basketball family,” Wojciechowski said. “Both individuals are great kids who had outstanding high school careers.

“We are really excited about what we have been able to accomplish in the last 12 months while recruiting for Marquette,” Wojciechowski added. “The five young men who we signed represent the best and brightest from around the country, both on and off the court. We believe they will be the foundation of our program here at Marquette.”

Prep standout Sacar Anim (Minneapolis, MN/DeLaSalle HS) has signed a National Letter of Intent with the Marquette University men’s basketball program, head coach Steve Wojciechowski announced Wednesday morning.

Anim, a 6-5, 190-pounder, will arrive on campus this summer and have four years of eligibility with the Golden Eagles.

“We had a chance to watch Sacar play this past season and were excited by how hard he plays and what a team player he is,” Wojciechowski said. “We believe his best basketball is ahead of him and are looking forward to his arrival on campus.”

Anim was tabbed the Associated Press Player of the Year in Minnesota as a senior after helping DeLaSalle High School to a record-tying fourth-straight state championship under head coach Dave Thorson. The Islanders defeated St. Paul Johnson in the Class 3A title game and Anim chipped in 32 points in the final. He averaged 25.0 points and 8.0 rebounds per game in 2014-15 and was the division’s top scorer in the state tournament, earning him a spot on the all-tourney roster.

A three-time all-conference selection, Anim was a four-year letterwinner and three-year starter at DeLaSalle. The program also claimed the league title each of his four seasons and lost only one conference matchup during his tenure.

In the summer, Anim has played with the Howard Pulley Panthers in the Nike EYBL and he was selected to play in the Minnesota State Basketball Coaches All-Star Game this spring.

“We are really excited about what we have been able to accomplish in the last 12 months while recruiting for Marquette,” Wojciechowski said. “The five young men who we signed represent the best and brightest from around the country, both on and off the court. We believe they will be the foundation of our program here at Marquette.”

Look for Marquette to be ranked among the nation’s top classes when we release our final rankings in May!
