6-foot-9 Fresno State transfer Braeden Anderson has committed to Seton Hall.

A day after visiting Seton Hall’s campus, Braeden Anderson has filled what seems to be a vital need for Seton Hall.

With centers Chier Ajou and Rashed Anthony likely not yet capable of playing starter-type minutes at center, Seton Hall can plug that hole with the immediately eligible Anderson, shifting Big East Preseason Player of the Year Angel Delgado to power forward.

This hypothetical hinges upon the one-time Kansas commit Anderson, who played sparingly last season at Fresno State after missing the 2013-14 season recovering from a broken neck, taking his game to the next level.

After initially committing to DePaul, the Wilbraham & Monson Academy (Mass.) product had eligibility issues at Kansas, forcing him to transfer to Fresno State where he missed the first half of the 2012-13 season. Prior to the 2013-14 season, Anderson suffered a broken neck in a preseason car accident that sidelined him for the season; he would receive a redshirt.

Braeden played sparingly this season before being released from the team in February so that he could concentrate on graduating and preparing for law school. Anderson has two years of eligibility left and fills Seton Hall’s last available scholarship for next season.
