2006 Focus: Charles Anderson

Charles Anderson, a 6-5 small forward from Bakersfield, is also a very good student...

Charles Anderson, 6-5 JR SF Bakersfield (Calif.) High, is a great-looking athlete with a good basketball body. His skills showed improvement last July and he has a chance to be recruited at the high major level.

We spoke with Anderson yesterday and asked about the schools he's heard from so far.

"Cal Poly, Fresno State, USC, Georgia Tech and Purdue are some of them," said Anderson.

Anderson said location won't play a big role in his decision. "I don't like the cold," said Anderson. "But I'll go anywhere -- location doesn't matter."

We asked about the importance of playing time and Anderson replied, "I'd like to go someplace where I'll have a chance to play in the first couple years."

When questioned about other issues that might influence his decision, Anderson said, "Good academics, a high graduation rate and someplace where they play fast -- I like to get up and down."

Anderson told us that he has a 3.76 GPA.
