W&M's Anderson commits to Kansas

April, 10, 2011
Citing multiple sources, ESPNU is reporting that Wilbraham & Monson post-graduate power forward Braeden Anderson gave his verbal commitment to sign with Kansas earlier today.

The 6-foot-8, 222-pound Anderson, a Calgary native, initially signed a Letter of Intent with DePaul University during the early signing period last November. He asked out of his release last January, and committed to the Jayhawks today over interest from Arizona, Kentucky and Mississippi State.

Anderson will join another player in the New England prep school ranks -- ESPNU100 point guard and Worcester native Naadir Tharpe of Brewster Academy (N.H.) -- in Bill Self's incoming recruiting class.

Brewster's McGary names favorites

February, 16, 2011
Just before the start of a long weekend break on the Brewster Academy campus, junior big man Mitch McGary gave ESPN's Adam Finkelstein an informal list of favorites, which he is reporting on his blog today.

McGary told Finkelstein his current list looks as follows, in no particular order: UConn, Florida, West Virginia, Pitt, Villanova, Miami (Fla.), Wisconsin, Indiana and Arizona.

"I probably won't make a decision until next year," McGary told Finkelstein. "Maybe next fall. It depends."

Like several other teammates, the 6-foot-10 Chesterton, Ind. native has seen his stock rise playing alongside a loaded Bobcats roster that includes the likes of Naadir Tharpe, Markus Kennedy, Jakarr Sampson and Durand Johnson. McGary has thrived as a four on the Wolfeboro, N.H. campus, often playing huge minutes off the bench when Kennedy gets into foul trouble.

McGary transferred to Brewster from Chesterton (Ind.) High, and is repeating his junior year. Prior to Brewster, McGary says he had offers from Purdue, Indiana, Cincinnati, Marquette, Dayton and Valparaiso.

Brewster lost its first game of the season last night -- an 84-71 decision to St. Thomas More and Andre Drummond, the nation's No. 1 junior -- to fall to 24-1.
