NEW YORK — Kyle Anderson is moving slowly but surely toward a college decision, possibly at the beginning of the next school year in the fall.
At this point, the 6-foot-8 Anderson says both Seton Hall and St. John’s are in good shape for his services.
As for Seton Hall, he said, “They just keep the phone calls short. They come to see me whenever they can. They just do a good job of it.”
Anderson, the No. 1 point guard in the Class of 2012 according to Rivals, knows Seton Hall freshman wing Fuquan Edwin from their time at Paterson Catholic.
“I played with him in the past,” he said.
On St. John’s, he said, “St. John’s does a good job, too.”
He also knows 2012 St. John’s commit Jevon Thomas through AAU ball.
A Fairview, N.J. native who helped St. Anthony win a mythical national championship, Anderson likes the idea of remaining close to home.
“That’s something that might have an edge,” he said. “Them being the two local schools.”
Anderson is also considering UCLA, Georgetown, Xavier, Arizona and Florida.
“It’s a lot to think about right now,” he said of the college process.
Anderson made the comments at the iS8/Nike Spring Classic, where he watched St. Anthony teammate Myles Mack score a game-high 26 points to lead the Playaz over the Panthers, 75-73, in an exciting quarterfinal.
Anderson and the younger Playaz were eliminated Saturday.
Without Mack at St. Anthony next season, Anderson’s role figures to change.
“I’ve just got to score more,” he said.
