Boston College has done well with California prospects in the past, and it picked up another good one from the west coast on Monday, as Ryan Anderson committed to the Eagles.
“I fell in love with everything about the school on my visit this last weekend,” Anderson said. “The coaches really emphasized my importance as the foundation of their recruiting class and I didn’t want to miss the chance to play in the ACC.”
Anderson is a versatile 6-foot-7 forward from Long Beach Poly (Calif.) who can score in a variety of ways, either behind the arc or in the paint, and is also a solid rebounder.
He is not concerned about the distance factor, going from California to Boston.
“It wasn’t a problem because I have some teammates that I’m already friends with that are going there with me,” Anderson said. “I also have family in Boston.”
He mentioned how he played on the same team with California natives Kyle Caudill, a Boston College commit, and Lonnie Jackson, who visited BC this weekend and could commit in the near future.
Anderson chose Boston College over San Diego State and California.
He has high expectations for his time in the ACC.
“I want to be the next Kyle Singler-type player. I want to become a game changer.”
