Top Junior College DL Taking in Games

<b>Zach Anderson</b> is a 6-4, 265 pound lineman from East Mississippi Community College with offers from such schools as Alabama, Auburn, Oklahoma State, Texas A&amp;M, and West Virginia. Last weekend, Anderson was busy as he attended not one, but two games on the same day.

"I went to the Mississippi State-Auburn game and I went to the Alabama-Ole Miss game. Both Mississippi teams just got blown out. I really liked Alabama and Auburn. I don't know what other games I will be going to, but I am sure I will go to a few more," said Zach Anderson.

"I spoke with Coach Johnson (Mississippi State), Coach Whitt (Auburn). I was suppose to talk with a few Alabama coaches, but I ended up leaving early."

Anderson's phone is staying rather busy.

"I have received a lot of calls. Mississippi State and Ole Miss have called. I can't really think of all the other schools that have called. A lot of schools have called though," said Anderson.

While Anderson is wide open as of now, he does know of one school he plans to visit.

"I don't have a top five right now. I am still looking. I want to go on visits first. I know I will take one of my visits to Alabama. I have been there a lot and I know the campus. They will be in my top five."

There are two major aspects Anderson will look into before making his college decision.

"I want to go somewhere I will get playing time, and I am looking for a school that has a good program for my major. I am majoring in Physical Education."

Anderson is on pace to graduate next semester.

"My grades are pretty good. I will graduate next semester, in May."

East Mississippi Community College is off to a slow start. They hope to win their first game this weekend.

"We have been doing pretty good, but we are 0-2. We will most likely play on Saturday against Itawamba. I have been doing pretty good. I have been getting mostly double teamed, but I have been getting around that and making plays," said Anderson.

Hurricane Ivan slammed into Alabama early on Thursday morning. Anderson, who is from Bay Minette, says his family is safe.

"It is not really bad there. Some things are messed up, but there is no major damage. I talked to my family today and they are all okay. The power here in Mississippi is out though."
