Bone's Best: Ryan Anderson

Andrew Bone provides a closer look at the Top 60 players in the state of Alabama prior to the 2011 season.

15. Ryan Anderson three-star
No. 45 defensive end
Daphne High School
6-foot-3, 248-pounds

2010 stats: Anderson had 75 tackles, 14.5 sacks, 11 tackles for loss and one interception.

Recruitment: Alabama was one of the last schools to offer Anderson, but he quickly jumped on it in April. He committed to the Tide with other scholarship offers coming from Auburn, Illinois, Kentucky, South Florida and Tennessee.

Anderson said of his commitment, "That's where I want to be. I just like everything about Alabama."

"At the end of the season, offenses would run away from him," head coach Glenn Vickery said. "Ryan's motor never stops going. He plays the game with high intensity. He's a very physical player, very hard to block, and fast. With his athletic ability, he chases running backs down from behind. He's going to continue to improve. We have yet to see Ryan at the top of his ability."
