talks to BeeJay Anya about recruiting, IU

Anya is balancing a host of offers, including Ohio State, Indiana, Kansas, Syracuse, UCLA and Georgetown, among others. He also has interest from North Carolina, Duke and Kentucky.

One offer that often comes up in conversation is Indiana. Kenny Johnson, a new assistant coach at Indiana since the beginning of the month, is the former vice president and assistant director of basketball operations of Team Takeover. Johnson also was the head coach of the program’s 16-and-under group, and he has built a great relationship with Anya.

“I’m very interested in Indiana, just like I’m very interested in all the other schools that have offered me,” Anya said. “I’m really happy for him. I know he’s going to do great things at Indiana.”

Whichever school picks up Anya will get a driven player, someone who isn’t completely worried about rankings but is focused on being the best. He’ll have the rest of the EYBL season to put an exclamation point on where he should be listed among the nation’s elite.
