Anderson joins a program with 11 national championships and a recent and long term tradition for putting players in the NBA.
"The biggest thing that stood out is the tradition of UCLA and its track record for putting guards in the NBA," Anderson told Scout.com.
"The process was very hard as far as making the choice because I want to play for all five of the coaches," Anderson said. "The decision was real hard."
"I will fit in well," Anderson said. "We will have three or four upperclass bigs that will probably be pros and right now we have Jordan Adams and Dom Artis, both of which can score and Dom is a very good point guard too. When I get on the floor I will have a lot of weapons to make passes to."
