Lanett, Ala.--A two-sport standout for Lanett High School in both football and basketball, 6-7, 190 Anquaevious Pollard will have a big choice to make when he has to decide which direction to go on the next level.
Already with offers in both sports and recently adding a football offer from Troy, Pollard said he’s still not sure how things will turn out because it will depend on which schools come calling for each sport and how he fits in with them.
“I have been thinking about it but I haven’t really decided yet,” Pollard said. “It’s really hard, but I’m still thinking about it. It’s just a matter of fit for me.
“I’ll have to wait to see what happens in both sports before I make a decision.”
As a big pass-catching wide receiver for the Panthers, Pollard has offers from Austin Peay, Jacksonville State, Florida Atlantic, Mercer and Chattanooga before picking up the offer from the Trojans.
He was recently at Auburn to camp for the Tigers and worked with the first group, getting plenty of attention from Coach Gus Malzahn and Auburn WR Coach Kodi Burns.

Earning MVP honors in back-to-back seasons for Lanett as they won a pair of 2A state titles in basketball, Pollard has some impressive early offers in hoops with New Mexico State, Florida Gulf Coast, North Alabama and Clark Atlanta all offering.
With spring football wrapping up and a load of teams coming through Lanett to watch the many prospects for the Panthers, Pollard said teams have told Coach Cliff Story they like his size and ball skills.
“They said they like my speed and I play almost like a shorter person,” Pollard said of his quickness and agility. “They like how I go after it and compete.”
