St. Anselm Lands Local Late Bloomer

Londonderry High School (NH) senior guard Cody Ball made a verbal commitment to St. Anselm earlier this week, accepting a full athletic scholarship from a program that once again finds itself among the Northeast 10’s best this season.  

Ball is a classic late bloomer who has grown three inches and gained over 15 pounds in the last year.

A year ago, he was just a diamond in the rough and while he had a strong junior season at Londonderry and an equally productive AAU season with the Granite State Raiders, it was really at the North Andover Fall League that he really started to attract significant attention, ultimately earning scholarship offers from both St. Anselm and Merrimack as well as interest from Amherst.

"I decided to go with Saint A's because I think I fit their style of play really well and I can thrive in their system,” Ball told the NH Notebook. “Coach Dickson is obviously a great coach and I trust that he can help me take my game to another level."

Now a highly skilled six-foot-two guard, Ball is currently averaging 24 points per game so far this season. He’s a highly skilled player, best known for his ability to shoot the ball, and equally dangerous pulling his quick release from behind the three-point line or off the dribble in the mid-range area.

Ball is also a quality ball-handler, who can make plays for both himself and others, and projects as a combo-guard in the NE-10.
