Ryan Anderson, who transferred from Boston College, is the latest addition to the Arizona Wildcats. The 6-foot-9 216 pound forward averaged 14.3 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game last year for BC as a junior.
Among many other factors, Anderson cited the desire to play in the NCAA Tournament and win a National Championship as ultimate reasons for choosing Arizona.
After a coaching change spurred his transfer, Anderson made visits to Indiana, Arizona, and Iowa St, and drew interest from a number of other schools.
Anderson will sit out a year and join the team on the court for the 2015-16 season. Anderson also successfully underwent shoulder surgery, which is expected to adequately heal by roughly September.
