Edmond Santa Fe's Aaron Anderson commits to Fresno State
Anderson averaged 8.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game last year. The 6-foot-3 senior impressed college coaches over the summer with his defensive strength and improved decision-making with the ball.
He also had scholarship offers from Nevada and Oral Roberts. After a visit to Fresno in late October, Anderson cancelled his trip to ORU and made his decision official on Friday.
“I don’t know if there was one thing that sold him on Fresno State,” Santa Fe coach Shawn Schenk said. “Aaron wanted to be at a place that was competitive, and he really liked what they’re doing there in a really good conference.
Anderson also has a friend in Fresno who he was able to communicate with about the area. Former Santa Fe player Rickey Vick is currently a senior on the basketball team at Fresno Pacific, an NAIA school.
It was important to Anderson to made a decision before the season began, learning from the difficulties faced by Santa Fe’s Josh Richardson last year. Richardson passed up early opportunities to sign, instead waiting until April. The situation ultimately worked out well for Richardson, who signed with Tennessee, but it was a scary and uncertain situation at times.
