Anderson Draws Attention

Gerard Anderson, 6-5 JR SF Carson (Calif.) High, has the body and athleticism to play at the high major level. However, his overall skill level is not quite there yet and he remains a work in progress. If he can improve his jumpshot, he has a chance to see his recruitment pick up significantly in July.

We spoke with Anderson over the weekend and asked him which schools have expressed interest so far.

"Iowa State, UC Santa Barbara, UC Davis and Florida," said Anderson.

Iowa State came to a practice during the season and UC Santa Barbara came to Carson two weeks ago to speak with Anderson.

Anderson said he hasn't given a lot of thought to the factors that will influence his choice. "Just some place that will give me a chance to play," said Anderson. "I don't care about location."

Anderson told us that he has a 2.6 GPA and he'll take the SAT in June.
