"Coach Cal is going to let me play my style of game," Anderson said. "We're going to be in Conference USA and I'm going to showcase my talents. I've been under the radar a long time and now it's time to show my talents."
Ironically, though it's not close to his home, Anderson is very familiar with the Tigers, in particular their staff. While serving as an assistant under Bruiser Flint at UMass, current Memphis assistant Tony Barbee successfully recruited point guard Anthony Anderson, Antonio's older brother.
"[Coach Barbee] knew my family very well and my family knew him extremely well. While I'm there I'll be far from home but I know I'll be taken care of, especially with Tony knowing my family."
Anderson, a 5th year prep, will factor prominently into our Top 100 the next time we release the rankings in the middle of the month. Anderson was the main scoring option for the New England Playaz on the traveling team circuit. He's a long bodied guard who can pass and finish with the best of them. He's a stud recruit for the Tigers.
