Lashard Anderson, a Freshman at Irvine Valley Community College was an All-League 1st team guard at Serra High, averaging 21.3 points, 3.1 assits, 3.1 steals, and 2.3 rebounds per game. He scored in single-digits just once his entire senior season, a mere 9 points in a blow-out win.
He was ranked by Scout.com as one of the top-10 PG's on the West Coast as a senior. Described as slight of build, it's what comes after that in his description that led to all the interest; fast, an accurate passer, a smart player, a very nice stroke from 20 feet in, and above all, a pure point-guard.
Those attributes led to the accolades and more than a little recruiting interest, but all that interest dried up when it appeared Lashard wouldn't qualify academically. However, once news got out that he had qualified, he suddenly became a hot commodity all over again, and that's where Boise State stepped in.
According to a report from the Idaho Statesman's Nick Jezierny, Anderson tripped to Boise State this past weekend and committed during the visit. The report goes on to state that Anderson will be faxing his LOI paperwork during the early signing period.
The article goes on to state that Anderson took an official visit to Central Florida recently. He reportedly was also recruited by San Diego, Utah State, Cal Poly, Cal State Fullerton, Long Beach State, UC Santa Barbara, and Army.
Lashard's signing fills a void for the Broncos, young depth at the 'true PG' position.
