Four-star center Frank Anselem has officially chosen his new home, and it won’t be in the state of Kentucky. The big man is taking his talents to Syracuse University to play for the Orange and head coach Jim Boeheim.
The 6-foot-10, 220 pound center is currently listed as the No. 142 player in the nation, the No. 23 center and the No. 16 player in Georgia, according to 247Sports. Anselem is tabbed as a four-star recruit.
It’s been a wild recruitment for Anselem, who moved to the United States from Nigeria in 2016 and has only played basketball for five years. He was originally a member of the 2021 class, but he officially announced his decision to reclassify into the 2020 class on April 14. Following his reclassification, Anselem cut his list to three – Alabama, Georgia and LSU. Just four days later, 7-foot center Josh Gray committed to LSU, and Anselem announced his recruitment was once again “wide open.”
“In light of recent developments, my recruitment is now wide open as I take the time to evaluate the best fit for me both on the court and academically next season,” Anselem said via Twitter. “Thank you to everyone for your interest. Please stay safe and always keep the family close.”
