This is big

Coach Rodney Terry has landed the first very significant recruit of his brief tenure.

Tarik Sbiet broke the news about former Kansas commit Braeden Anderson aligning himself with Fresno State.

Prior to Kansas, the 6-foot-8 forward had given a verbal to DePaul but asked to be released when the Blue Demons recruited over him. Hawaii had offered Anderson prior to his yes to the Jayhawks.

Anderson isn't an immediate day-one-change-a-program player but he has a good chance to be a very productive talent.

A point to consider: will there be an after effect of this get? Meaning, does Fresno area big Robert Upshaw now look longer and harder at the Bulldog program? Will Bakersfield point T.J. Wallace also think about it?

Anderson is the kind of talent/potential combo that the WAC really needs in order to garner greater national respect -- too bad Fresno is headed elsewhere after this season.
