Current Player News

Purdue is on the list of Minnesota's Alan Anderson, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from DeLaSalle HS. He's a strong player who seems to do everything well, but did seem to be an above average defender at the Nike Camp. Strengths include defensive awareness and his ability to power it to the basket. A main weakness we observed was his inability to hit from the perimeter as consistently as Division I shooting guards should be expected to hit. Anderson is an athlete who also can draw a football scholarship at wide receiver. He possesses 4.6 speed with the strength to back it up. Likely to take the basketball route, football is still a consideration. Anderson has been rated as a top 30 basketball recruit in his class and the third-best shooting guard in the country, but is only considered to be among the top 100 wide receivers.

DeLaSalle was the defending Class 2A state champs in Minnesota coming into the 1999-2000 season, when they got Anderson as a transfer from Minneapolis Edison. Anderson help them again get deep into the state tournament, but DeLaSalle was knocked off in the 2A semifinal game by Waterville-Elysian-Morristown. Anderson began his junior season statistically slow, but by the end was threatening to score between 25 and 30 points per game. His game-high for scoring stands at 34, rebounding at 16 and assists at 11.

Anderson was a USA Basketball Development League selection in 2000 and averaged 15.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, and two assists, shooting 46-percent from the field and 73-percent from the line. Anderson led his team in scoring as the North Squad won the Gold at the festival.

Anderson paid an unofficial visit to Minnesota on 8/4/00 along with fellow Minnesotan Maurice Hargrow. The two play in summer amateur leagues together in Saint Paul. Among the schools offering and visiting Anderson during July include Michigan State, Iowa, Arizona and Kansas. Minnesota, Michigan State and Florida are all said to have moved Anderson up to be their No.1 targets at his position. Others with offers on the table include UCONN, Marquette and Louisville. Anderson gave a list of schools at the end of July he had serious interest in, and that list consisted of Michigan State, Minnesota, Iowa, UCONN, Arizona, Louisville, Florida, Kentucky, Purdue, and Kansas.
