While it may not have the same hype as a year ago when Seton Hall announced a top-recruiting class ahead of the 2014-15 season, the Pirates of 2015-16 got another addition to this year’s recruits in the form of incoming-redshirt junior forward Braeden Anderson.
Anderson, a native of Alberta, Canada, spent the last three years at Fresno State, missing all of 2013-14 after suffering a neck injury. The 6-foot, 9-inch forward averaged 4.1 points-a-game in 10 contests as a freshman while averaging 2.4 rebounds through two seasons with the Bulldogs.
The news was first broken on Friday by ESPN basketball insider Jeff Goodman, who announced Anderson would transfer while attending law school at Seton Hall. He will be granted two years of eligibility and can play immediately.
Anderson adds to a list of fresh faces that includes freshmen Myles Carter, Dalton Soffer and Veer Singh.
This is the third straight off-season in which the Pirates were able to lure a transfer to South Orange, bringing in Chier Ajou a year ago and Sterling Gibbs the year prior after he sat out a year of play per NCAA regulations.
Seton Hall now has no open scholarships remaining for the coming season.
