During our recent trip to Potomac Falls, we got another good look at Ian Anderson, one of the DMV area’s most underrated prospects. A versatile forward with size athleticism and an improved perimeter game, Anderson is poised for a productive senior campaign. During a recent interview with Prep Hoops, he discussed his overall game and recruitment among other topics.

PH: How has your role grown from this year compared to last at Potomac Falls?

IA: “Definitely becoming a leader, and more of a vocal leader. We lost 5 or 6 seniors, many of which were vocal guys and leaders in the locker room. Me and the other seniors are looking forward to stepping up and taking over those roles.

PH: Your shot looks good right now. Is that something you’ve been working on?

IA: “Yeah, I’ve been working on expanding my game; being more comfortable on the outside.”

PH: What do you think is underrated about your game right now?

IA: “Probably my perimeter game. Because most people would label me as a power big, but with me expanding my range I can kind of surprise people like that.

PH: What is your GPA and SAT Score?

IA: “I have a 3.89 and a 1300 SAT Score.”

PH: Which schools are most active in your recruitment right now?

IA: “Some D2’s like West Liberty, Cal PA, and Chowan. Coach just recently heard from schools like Davidson and Wofford.”

PH: What’s the timetable looking like for you in terms of your college decision?

IA: “I’m looking to decide probably before the season around Thanksgiving, but if I feel like I need to hold off and weigh my options some more I’ll take my time.”

PH: Are you visiting any schools?

IA: “Yeah, I’m taking visits up to West Liberty and Cal PA. Also Millersville in a couple of weeks.”

PH: What do you think you can bring to a college program?

IA: “Not only a good basketball player, but a good person and a good leader. Someone who can make an impact on the team, both and off the court.”
