Ranelar was on top of this story. Howland has his first elite PG commit to follow DC. Jerime Anderson from Canyon High (Anaheim) committed to the 11 time national champions last night. If you are wondering with so many quality PGs in the 2008 class, why pull the trigger so early, here is Dohn (emphasis mine throughout):
Anderson should fit well into Howland's tough-minded defensive system.
"My parents and I talked about this over and over and talked about the pros and cons, and there were no negatives," Anderson said. "I love to get steals. It's something I'm accustomed to, something I'm good at. I pride myself on defense."
During the offseason, Anderson teams in the backcourt with Campbell Hall's Jrue Holiday - a top five recruit in the class of 2008 - on the Double Pump Elite AAU team. It is logical to believe an Anderson signing may boost the Bruins chances of also signing Holiday to a commitment.
Anderson is an excellent student and currently has a 3.7 GPA in high school.
UCLA basketball - good times.
