Eric Musselman has added two more prospects to the Nevada Wolf Pack basketball program.

In the last 24 hours, Nevada has added two commitments to its program getting a commitment from Juwan Anderson, a six-foot point guard from Oakland, California, on late Monday night and also added 6-7 forward Jordan Caroline who is a transfer from Southern Illinois.

Caroline, who is the son of former All-Pro NFL linebacker Simeon Rice, averaged 9.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and shot 44.8 percent from the field as a freshman last year for the Salukis. He was named to the Missouri Valley Conference's All-Freshman team. Caroline decided to transfer out of Southern Illinois in order to find a "better basketball fit" and after visiting Cincinnati, Xavier and Nevada, he announce via Twitter that he would commit to Nevada. Per NCAA transfer rules, Caroline must sit out the 2015-16 season and will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Juwan Anderson played basketball at Bishop O'Dowd in Oakland which is one of the top high school basketball programs in the nation. Last year, Anderson spend a post graduate season last year at Suffield Academy in Connecticut where he average 15.4 points, 5.2 assists, 2.8 steals and grabbed 2.3 rebounds per game. Anderson had reportedly received offers from Pacific, Florida A&M, Cal State Bakersfield, Fairfield and Northern Arizona before deciding to walk on at Nevada.

With the additions of Anderson and Caroline, Musselman has filled all three open scholarships that he inherited when he took over the program. He could add more recruits if another scholarship opens up.

Along with the additions of Caroline and Anderson, the Wolf Pack added Lindsey Drew, a 6-4 guard from Los Angeles and Marcus Marshall, a Missouri State transfer who averaged 19 points last year, to their program. While Marshall and Caroline have to sit out per NCAA transfer rules, Anderson and Drew will be eligible to play this season.
