The Boise State men’s basketball team has landed its first player for the 2023 class.
Andrew Meadow of West Ranch High School in Stevenson Ranch, California, announced his commitment Thursday on social media.
“1000% committed,” Meadow wrote in an Instagram post.
Meadow attended Boise State’s elite camp in late July and was immediately drawn to the team and city, he said.
“I think the biggest thing was just the relationships that I started to build with the coaches and how I felt it was the perfect fit,” Meadow told the Idaho Statesman. “The system that they run really fits my game, and everything about the program I feel like was just perfect for me.”
As a junior, the 6-foot-7, 215-pound forward averaged 21 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game for the Wildcats.
He currently plays on LeBron James’ Strive for Greatness AAU squad alongside James’ oldest son, Bronny James, who is among the top 50 prospects in the 2023 class. In AAU action, Meadow is averaging 10.7 points and 4.6 rebounds.
“I feel like my biggest strength is my versatility,” Meadow said. “I feel like I can play multiple positions from the two all the way down to the four. I can play in the post, I can play on the perimeter, just whatever the team needs me to do to win.”
Meadow also had offers from Cal Poly, Fresno State, Loyola Marymount, New Mexico, Pepperdine, San Diego State, San Francisco, Southern Utah, UC Santa Barbara, UNLV, Washington and Washington State, according to 247sports.com.
