Numerous schools after Anderson

Three-star point guard JoJo Anderson is adjusting to a new home at La Lumiere.

JoJo Anderson will spend his junior season a long way from home. After spending his whole life in Houston, Anderson has made the transition to prep school at La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere. Now the three-star floor general is looking to make strides on the floor with a whole host of college coaches looking on.

At 6-foot-1 with solid athleticism and quickness, Anderson is continuing to improve, and he feels his move to La Lumiere will definitely help long term.

"It's a great experience coming all the way from Houston," said Anderson. "I just have to work hard every day and think of my family when I am getting tired. The academics are great, and it has been a good experience so far."

He continued, "The coaches have been helping with my jump shot a lot. I have seen a lot of improvement in my game since I got here."

Recruiting wise a number of high-major schools are showing Anderson a good amount of interest.

"I am talking to Nebraska, Creighton, Auburn, New Mexico, Dayton, Georgia, Florida State, Texas A&M, and there are a few other schools."

When it comes to visits, Anderson has seen Baylor, Creighton, Nebraska, and Texas A&M.

Nebraska has a new commitment to basketball and brand new facilities. Anderson says it is easy to see how the Cornhuskers are going to improve over the next few years.

"The visit there was real nice," said Anderson of Nebraska. "The coaches are great, and they are building the program. I would like to see where they are in a couple of years because I think they are doing a great job now."

Also Anderson enjoyed his trip to Creighton where he feels like he could standout on campus.

"Creighton is nothing but a basketball school which is good," said Anderson. "They have a great coaching staff and there are no distractions there, so that is nice."

For now Anderson is in no hurry to make any kind of decision. He wants to play out his junior year and continue to improve on the court.

Currently Anderson is seen as the No. 19 point guard in the class of 2015.
