Stayton High School’s junior Kaleb Anundi, who stands at 6’8”, is a major threat at the block with a consistent mid range shot. He also has some bounce for a big man with a vertical of 32 inches. In addition, Anundi is known for his ability to outrun his opponents, find the open man, and maintain a great stamina. Anundi will be the biggest asset for the success of Stayton High School during his next two years.
As a freshman, Anundi started JV knowing that the following year, with 7 seniors graduating, he would have big shoes to fill. His sophomore year he started Varsity averaging 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 blocks, with a career high of 25 points and 12 rebounds in a game. Anundi’s big dreams became more of a reality after the Capitol City Classic tournament when he was interviewed by the Statesman Journal and had an article written about him. It was a big moment for him because he felt that his hard work was paying off. In this article his coach said “He’s a true post. We like to dump it into him… He’s not one of those bigs that likes to shoot 3s, which is rare. He likes the paint and he likes to finish in there. He’s shooting a great percentage right now”. He used this as fuel to only work harder. Anundi’s other sophomore year accomplishments include getting second team all conference, athlete of the week, and being voted best offensive by his team.
This summer Anundi played AAU for The Hoop alternating back and forth with the 16U team and 17U team. During summer ball the Stayton High School team took big steps toward a successful upcoming season. Anundi has attended many camps but his favorite camp was University of Portland because the coaching staff was extremely helpful and he felt that he made an impact on them because they reached out to him and came to his high school to watch him at open gym. In the off season he trains with multiple personal trainers and is always in the gym working on post moves, ball handling, and expanding his range. Keep an eye out for Anundi during the next two years, bigger things are to come from this 2019 prospect,
