Anderson, a 6-foot-5 small forward out of The Winchendon School, ran last summer with Rock Johnson's I-Can All-Stars. A versatile, hard-working wing, Anderson is hearing from schools on multiple levels.
"I feel that in a way I have to go out and show everybody that I'm really a two guard," Anderson said. "I'm kind of laid back but I'm trying to do what I have to do."
What impressed us the most about Anderson was his ability to play "big" around the basket. A solid rebounder for his size, Anderson has a motor and works for what he can get. Programs took notice quickly and many have moved on him.
My coach tells me that a lot of schools are interested and I've been talking to a lot of coaches," the Fairmont, Calif., native said. "They say they're interested. I'm not committing anytime soon. I just talked to the coach from UNLV recently. I've been talking to a lot of coaches."
Oregon State offered. "Oregon State said they want me to commit. They asked to commit but I'm going to wait until the end of the season."
Johnson said Anderson is seeking the best fit. Whether its mid level or higher (and he's completely fine with the mid-major programs), putting himself in a place where he can be successful is the mission.
Academically, Anderson is settling in at Winchendon.
"I think being away from home and being in the cold weather, digging into the educations part has really helped him," Johnson said. "He's digging in.
"He was a skinny kid and every year he got better playing for me. He's always had heart."
