Boston College Transfer Ryan Anderson Commits To Arizona

It’s been known for some time now that Boston College junior Ryan Anderson will not be returning to Chestnut Hill for his senior season. On Thursday, the former Eagle decided on a landing spot.

Anderson announced via Twitter that he will be transferring to the University of Arizona, where he will play for a Wildcats team that earned a No. 1 seed in this past NCAA tournament.

A 6-foot-8 forward, Anderson played in all 32 games for BC during his junior season, averaging 14.3 points and a team-high 7.6 rebounds per game. As a transfer, the Lakewood, Calif., native will be ineligible to play until the 2015-16 season, but — judging by his newly updated Twitter profile — he’s already embracing the change.

With Anderson’s departure, sophomore guard Olivier Hanlan will the only returning BC player who averaged double-digit points this past season.

Arizona advanced to the Elite Eight before losing by one point to Wisconsin, 64-63.
