4-Star SG Josh Anderson Becomes 2nd Blue-Chip 2017 Player To Commit To Western Kentucky

Josh Anderson, a four-star shooting guard, will join five-star center Mitchell Robinson at Western Kentucky.

According to Anderson's high school coach, the No. 1 2017 recruit in the state of Louisiana will be heading to play for Rick Stansbury and the Hilltoppers.

Robinson's commitment shocked the college basketball world. Now, WKU has made it two blue-chip players in the 2017 class, and have the makings of one of the top 2017 classes in the country. ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla thinks Anderson has NBA potential.

247Sports ranks Anderson as the No. 13 shooting guard in the class, and No. 52 overall in 2017. Robinson is the No. 1 center in the class of 2017.

Anderson chooses the Hilltoppers over offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Florida, LSU, N.C. State, Texas A&M and others. If Rick Stansbury was planning to ask for a raise any time soon, now may be a decent time for him to bring it up. Stansbury is entering his first season at Western Kentucky, taking over the program in March after the resignation of Ray Harper.
