CALGARY,AB–After committing to Kansas University and deemed a partial qualifier by the NCAA, Canadian Braeden Anderson has now found a new home at Fresno State!
Anderson was the #6-ranked Canadian prospect in 2011 who had many high-major schools in the hunt to land the big man.
“I felt really funny about choosing another school over Kansas, because that’s where I wanted to go,” explained Anderson.
“There were still a bunch of high-major schools to choose from but I have a really good relationship with the coaches at Fresno State and have absolute trust that they can get me where I want to go.”
And where is that?
“My goals are still the same, I want to go to the NBA and I want to be a winner in college. I want to put Fresno State on the map!”
The Okotoks, Alberta native will enroll in his new school this winter and begin taking classes, while also preparing for next season.
“My work ethic has double…no tripled…and I’m going to put in all the work necessary to reach my goals.”
Attending a lower level NCAA school may be a blessing a disguise as it will allow him to make an instant impact on the league and makes his presence felt in his freshman year.
NPH would like to congratulate Braeden on finding a new home, and wish him luck in his future endeavours!
