Donahue's Southern California Recruits Aren't Giving Up Rooting For The Lakers

Steve Donahue has been quick to develop a Southern California recruiting pipeline, already landing three recruits from the area -- Brea Olinda's Kyle Caudill, Valencia's Lonnie Jackson and Long Beach Poly's Ryan Anderson -- expected to sign LOIs during tomorrow's early signing period. The number of players BC will sign tomorrow from the greater Los Angeles area is pretty big, compared to the number signed by UCLA and USC, writes Eric Sondheimer of the LA Times.

It sounds like Donahue is getting some of the best players from Southern California. 

"The trio headed to Boston College are three of the best basketball players in Southern California. Caudill averaged 17 points and 12 rebounds as a junior. Jackson averaged 23.6 points. Anderson is considered the top player on the likely preseason No. 1 team in the state, coming off a junior season in which he averaged nearly 13 points and 8.6 rebounds."

But just because three southern California guys are headed up Boston, don't expect Caudill, Jackson or Anderson to show up and instantly start rooting for the Celtics.

"As for being a Lakers fan in Boston, Anderson said, 'It will be interesting. I'm still going to root for the Lakers. Hopefully, they don't beat me up too bad.'"

Don't worry, Anderson. This isn't nearly the level of treachery that Sondheimer is making out to be. Now if you show up wearing a Boston University hockey sweater, a Duke ballcap or a Notre Dame football jersey, however, we are going to have words.
