Big safety talking to several programs

One of the summer's top camp performer's was Corpus Christi (Texas) Carroll safety/outside linebacker Jonathan Anderson. Since the summer, Anderson has continued to impress while doubling at running back on offense and leading his team to a 3-1 start to the season.

During the summer, Anderson pulled in offers from Rice and Utah but saw serious interest come in from a host of other programs. With the football season in full swing now, Anderson has continued to communicate regularly with several schools.

"It's the same two offers but I've been talking to everybody else though," Anderson said. "I've been talking to coach Glasgow from TCU, Coach Brooks from UNLV and I've been talking to Vanderbilt. They all seem pretty interested."

Anderson has hopes of getting to Las Vegas to check out the UNLV campus and he also intends to set up an official visit to Utah. An imposing safety prospect, Anderson is being looked at by schools at both safety and outside linebacker. For his part, Anderson is willing to play either role.

"All schools seem to like me at safety but I think Vanderbilt sees me as a linebacker type," he said. "I really don't care where I play."

On Thursday, Anderson and his teammates improved to 3-1 with a win over Victoria Memorial. Anderson had one of the biggest plays of the game when he carried the ball on a fake punt to convert a first down and keep the game winning drive alive.

"I feel like we're going to be pretty decent," he said of his team. "I feel like we're going to make it to the playoffs and get to the first few rounds of the playoffs and it will be a good journey then."
