Jenn Anderson was always attached to Curt Miller.
Whether it was at Bowling Green or elsewhere, Anderson knew two things about the recruiting process and her immediate plans: she’d graduate from Westfield in 2013 and play four years of college basketball for Miller.
So, when Miller offered the 6-foot-3 center a scholarship only a few weeks after taking the Indiana job last spring, Anderson didn’t hesitate to commit.
“I was going to go to Bowling Green, but thankfully he came here,” Anderson said after Wednesday’s Indiana Junior-Senior All-Star scrimmage in Tipton. “My sister’s down there (at IU) and it was a great fit for me. I knew I wanted to play for him after high school. He’s the reason I’m going down there.”
Anderson, a Noblesville native, averaged 18 points and 8.3 rebounds during her senior year at Westfield. She set individual school records with 1,571 career points and 873 career rebounds, while helping the Shamrocks to a pair of sectional titles.
She officially signed her letter of intent last month, joining a freshman class that already includes Taylor Agler, Larryn Brooks and Karlee McBride, and forwards Alexis Gassion and Lyndsay Leikem. Valparaiso graduate transfer Tabitha Gerardot will also use her final year of eligibility in Bloomington next season.
For an Indiana team looking to add depth to the post, Anderson can bring the type of size and strength they lacked for much of Miller’s first season at IU. It’s a role not lost on Anderson.
“I’m strong and they said that’s my biggest thing,” Anderson said. “I’m probably going to be a 4 or a 5, and shoot a little bit. But I live in the paint. Busting bodies is not a big deal. Getting roughed up is fine. I can take it. I’m excited.”
