Warrior Insider

The Inside Source for Hawaii Men's Basketball

Canadian forward interested in Hawaii

Braeden Anderson (video, 2:58), a 6-foot-8 forward recruit, has Hawaii on his list of schools he is considering, according to the Canadian basketball recruiting site flagrantfouls.com.

The Warriors are apparently in good company in the recruiting battle for Anderson. According to the report, UConn, Cincinnati, Clemson and Temple are the other programs that he is considering.

Anderson is originally from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, but is currently attending Wilbraham & Monson Academy in Massachusetts. He played last season at Christian Faith Prep School in Creedmoor, N.C., and averaged around 17 points and 11 rebounds per game.

At the end of last season, the recruiting site hoopscooponline.com listed Anderson as the No. 24 player from basketball-rich North Carolina in the class of 2011 (#157 overall).

Anderson attended the Under Armour Basketball Combine in New York with several other top high school players from across the country last month, and posted some of the most impressive numbers. He had the highest vertical jump of 32 inches, and also had the best marks in the broad jump, 20-yard sprint and 300-yard run.

  1. Good point, Coach D. Feels good to be vying for players against schools that have a little more juice than San Jose St. and CS-Bakersfield.
