2011 Recruit Ryan Anderson Headed to Boston College

Posted by CoHoops Paul Seaver

New Boston College head coach Steve Donahue has scored another California recruit for the class of 2011.

6-foot-8 power forward Ryan Anderson has announced his intentions to play for the Eagles.

With the addition of Anderson, Donahue has now reeled in four members of the class to Chestnut Hill, moving forward in what will be the first steps in opening up a new era in Boston College basketball.

Anderson joins a class that also features California big man Kyle Caudill, a 6-foot-11 center from Brea Olinda High School. Alongside the two big men, Florida forward Eddie Odio and Massachusetts native Dennis Clifford make up the rest of the group.

Donahue was brought in this past spring to try and usher in a new start for the Eagles and their program and with four commitments already under his belt he has begun to do just that. Three of his four commitments are front court players, sending an indirect message that BC wants to strengthen their front line in the tough ACC conference.

Anderson is considered as the 21st best power forward in the class of 2011 and should instantly give the Eagles a tough, face-up presence inside once he steps on campus next season. He also had interest from California, Washington, Arizona and San Diego State before ultimately choosing BC.

With another player from California heading cross-country to the Heights, Donahue has already proven he will get players from all across the nation to attend BC.

The Eagles will have a more veteran lineup in 2010-2011, however will likely appear much younger come next season. With already four commitments, Boston College appears ready to fill the voids no matter how far they have to go to do so.
