View Full Version : Ryan Anderson - Verrry Interesting

06-07-2010, 02:02 PM

UCLA, California, Washington State and Arizona were the four mentioned by Anderson, a 6-foot-7 recruit who can play inside but also has the ability to float around the perimeter and make open jump shots.

And then the last two paragraphs:

Another squad that Anderson is also considering is Gonzaga although he hasn't heard much from its coaching staff yet.

First-year assistant coach Donny Daniels, formerly of UCLA, and Anderson have developed a strong relationship in the last couple years. Anderson said he'd definitely listen if Gonzaga started to recruit him more heavily.

Is he 2011 or 2012?

Ryan Anderson, 2011 PF:

A young looking 2011 prospect, Anderson has kept growing over the past year, and the level he plays on could be correlated to how tall he gets. He's a skilled face-up four who can hit the open three, and seems to grow more confident each time out.

Anderson was hitting from three in his first game of the day, although that shot wasn't as on target in the Top 50 all-star game.

Arizona has been recruiting Anderson recently, and he told us that he'll attend the Wildcats' Elite Camp this month.

"My interest level is high," Anderson said. "I'm going to go out to their Elite Camp, meet the coaching staff and get a better feel for them. I know Sean Miller is a real good coach and he's a players' coach."

ESPN (http://insider.espn.go.com/ncb/recruiting/tracker/player?recruitId=72977&season=2011): 94 Scout, Inc. Grade:

April, 2010: Anderson has steadily grown-both in terms of skill and height. His frame has begun to lean out and as a result he is becoming more mobile. The strength of his game is his shooting touch. He has a smooth jump shot (more like a set shot) out to the 3-point line and he is a pretty solid rebounder. He doesn't possess a whole a lot of bounce, but he does have a ton of savvy and instincts in the paint area. Due to his good hands and feel for the game Anderson is an adept passer as well. Overall, offensively, Anderson looks like a solid mid-high major face-up 4-man. However, defensively, he doesn't slide his feet very well and quicker 4-men will give him trouble-for example 6-6 Jonah Travis (Minnesota Pump-n-Run) gave him fits off the dribble in a recent tournament. Eventually, due to the continued improvements in his game and increased athleticism (body getting leaner), Anderson should end up in the Pac-10.

Just a wild and crazy guess on my part, but if we can get Wiltjer and Pangos, I don't think we could bring in Anderson if we tried. No scholies and no room. And I don't have a handle on just how good he is.
