For the past week, rumors have been swirling that Maryland commit Justin Anderson was wavering on his pledge to the Terrapins. There was talk that he already made another commitment to Virginia and just hadn’t announced yet.

Anderson made it a done deal on Thursday.

“Great day to be a Cav!” Anderson tweeted.

"The Cavaliers were always my second choice behind Maryland," Anderson said in a statement released by his high school. "Also, my family lives in Virginia. After the departure of Coach [Gary] Williams and Coach [Robert] Ehsan it just feels like the right fit." 

Anderson, a 6-foot-5 small forward from Montrose Christian (Md.), is one of the most athletic players in the country. He is a menace in transition and uses his energy and motor to be a lockdown defender at the other end. Anderson is one of the few players in the country that can impact a game without scoring due to his leadership qualities. The lefty has improved his outside shot and excels at crashing the offensive glass.

"Justin decided to revisit his options after Gary [Williams] retired," Montrose coach Stu Vetter said. "Although Mark Turgeon wanted to begin recruiting him, Justin and his family decided to conclude the process."

He joins a solid 2012 class for Tony Bennett that also includes top-100 prospects Evan Nolte and Mike Tobey.
