Kentucky Showing Interest in 2013 Center BeeJay Anya

Kentucky is among several high-major schools that are showing significant interest in 2013 center BeeJay Anya.

Anya is a 6-8 center at DeMatha Catholic School. He ranks No. 20 overall on the Rivals.com list for 2013.

Here is more from ESPN.com:

There are multiple highlight tapes available showing his ability to dominate inside. Defensively, he uses his 7-4 wingspan to block shots and grab rebounds. Offensively, Anya's power is beneficial in finishing plays close to the rim.

Anya is balancing a host of offers, including Ohio State, Kansas, Syracuse, UCLA and Georgetown. He also has interest from North Carolina, Duke and Kentucky.

One offer that often comes up in conversation is Indiana. Kenny Johnson, the new assistant coach at Indiana as of the beginning of the month, is the former vice president and assistant director of basketball operations of Team Takeover. Johnson also was the head coach of the program's 16-and-under group, and he has built a great relationship with Anya.

"I'm very interested in Indiana, just like I'm very interested in all the other schools that have offered me," Anya said. "I'm really happy for him. I know he's going to do great things at Indiana."
