Kyle Anderson commits to UCLA basketball
By By Brandon Parker
As Kyle Anderson celebrates his 18th birthday today, he can bask in the fact that his college decision has been made. The highly touted St. Anthony senior swingman committed to UCLA's hoops program late Monday night.
Last night, Anderson posted on his Twitter account @KyleAnderson5: "Had a great family meeting. I've decided to be a UCLA BRUIN!!" He's also changed his avatar to a picture of him with a UCLA jersey on that says "Anderson" on the back. Pretty sick.
Following a 33-0 season that included a state championship and POWERADE FAB 50 national title with the Friars as well as an impressive summer on the AAU circuit, Anderson had narrowed his list down to UCLA, Georgetown, St. John's, Florida and Seton Hall. But in the end, the Bruins snagged the Boost Mobile Elite 24 co-MVP.
