The 6-foot-8 Anderson will trip on Tuesday to UCLA for a third time on his way to the Boost Mobile Elite 24 game Saturday in Venice Beach, Calif.
Upon his return, he will also receive home visits from the five schools on his list, but those dates are not yet set. He is set to announce Sept. 20.
On Sunday, Anderson was named MVP of the Battle of Boroughs after posting 25 points, eight rebounds, four assists, three blocks and two steals as Harlem beat The Bronx, 84-70, in the title game. Anderson, whose mother, Suzanne, lives in Harlem, also put up 20 points in a semifinal win over Queens.
That performance came a week after Anderson notched 28 points to lead Team NYC to a 146-138 victory over Team USA in the inaugural Franchise Classic in The Bronx.
At the end of July, Anderson led the Playaz Basketball Club to titles at the Desert Duel in Arizona and the End of Summer Classic at Albright College in Reading, Pa.
