Ex-UNLV recruit Ethan Anderson headed to USC

Former UNLV signee Ethan Anderson committed to Southern California on Friday, announcing his decision on Twitter.

He pulled his commitment from the Rebels when coach Marvin Menzies was fired a week ago.

Anderson, a 6-foot-1-inch point guard from Fairfax High School in Los Angeles, was the first member of the Rebels’ recruiting class. The other one, 6-2 point guard Josh Pierre-Louis of Roselle (New Jersey) Catholic High, also re-opened his recruiting process.

UNLV athletic director Desiree Reed-Francois is traveling this weekend to NCAA Tournament games as part of her search for a new coach.
