Although his parents divorced before Anderson began school, they've both stayed involved in his life. He lives with his mother during the week and spends time with his father on weekends.
Landus, who wears a size 13 shoe and doesn't turn 17 until May, also has a good basketball lineage on his father's side of the family. His dad, Lindsey Anderson, played at Florida A&M in the early 1970s and a raft of uncles and cousins have played college ball throughout the South.
"He has basketball in his blood," said Lindsey Anderson, a state probation officer.
Blizzard, his high school coach, said it's more than that.
"It's easy when your best player is also your hardest worker," Blizzard said. "That's why he's at where he's at."
