Boston College granted junior forward Ryan Anderson release from the university today, and he already has a significant list of transfer suitors: Indiana, Arizona, Iowa State, New Mexico, Washington and San Diego State. Anderon leaves Boston College in the wake of Head Coach Steve Donahue's firing. The Boston Globe also reports that former Aztec James Rahon's brother Joe Rahon, a sophomore, is considering transferring out of Boston College.
Anderson, an ACC Honorable Mention, averaged 14.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game for the Eagles. He shot 48.9 percent from the field, 73.9 percent from the charity stripe, recorded 20 blocks and recorded 25 steals. The big man also has a little touch from long range, making almost 30 percent of his 3-pointers. These numbers are even more impressive considering the fact that Anderson played in the brutally tough ACC.
The Aztecs would love to have Anderson's contribution. He's 6'8", 219 pounds, almost the exact same size as graduating senior Josh Davis. However, as of now SDSU only has one more scholarship to give next year, and many believe Fisher will give the scholarship to junior guard Aqeel Quinn. Important to note: Anderson would have to sit out the 2014-15 season. He's having shoulder surgery next Tuesday and will be inactive for at least four months.
SDSU, Arizona and Washington all recruited Anderson out of high school. Could Anderson be another transfer who comes to SDSU after Fisher and company unsuccessfully recruited him out of high school?
Anderson hails from Lakewood, Calif. So SDSU would be the closest to home out of all schools interested in him.
