Braeden Anderson’s journey to Seton Hall has been unorthodox to say the least.
The 6-foot-9, 235-pound Canadian is Seton Hall’s newest basketball recruit, ESPN’s Jeff Goodman says. It’s Anderson’s fourth Division One commitment, an odyssey that began five years ago.
“I’m looking for a place that has a good law school and basketball program,” Anderson tells NorthPoleHoops.com.
Mentioning law school first? Yeah, you heard right.
After committing to DePaul, Anderson de-committed and went to Kansas, where some of his high school work wasn’t honored by the NCAA, which ruled him academically ineligible. Anderson blamed poor academic advice in high school, and transferred to Fresno State.
After averaging 4 points and 3 rebounds as a Bulldog freshman, Anderson broke his neck while a passenger in a four-vehicle crash that killed another man. Doctors thought his basketball career was over.
They were proven wrong.
