Yes, he did... and that helped them greatly...
But there's still NO EXCUSE for Billy Donovan seeing a guy who was identified as a top 5 player in his class from 8th grade on MORE than the guy who was 2 hours away from him.
Donovan attended more games at Chaminade than Anderson EVER did. Anderson went 1 time. When Beal was a junior. Donovan was spotted at the gym multiple times during Beal's sophomore and freshman seasons.
Anderson's first year at Missouri (06/07) was Beal's 8th grade year. The year he blew up at summer camps and burst onto the national scene.
Anderson is a lazy recruiter. There's no way around it.
