Though the trip to the Big Island was tempting, Dave Dickerson sold his Tulane program a tad better and got it done.
"The academics as well as him being a local guy; he loved to play in the front of the home fans," PCD coach Mike McGuire said. ‘I think Dickerson did a really good job and they really showed that they wanted him as a four. I think he's going to be a nice recruit for those guys."
Andersen hit the circuit last spring when he played alongside Scout.com's current No. 1 junior, Greg Monroe, with the Panthers team. The thinking here is that his best basketball will come in college.
"Dickerson said this and I agree: there's no ceiling to him," McGuire said. "He's tall and raw and he can put on weight when he gets to college. He's going to keep improving every year. I that conference they need big kids. The light is kind of going off and he really wants to be a good college player."
