JUCO Defensive Lineman Getting Plenty Of Attention

One of the top junior college defensive linemen in the country is looking at several SEC schools, including Auburn.

Zach Anderson is one of the top defensive end prospects in junior college. The East Mississippi standout played quarterback in high school at Baldwin County High (Ala.) with current Auburn receiver Anthony Mix as his go-to guy in the passing game. Anderson has grown a little since high school when he weighed around 220 pounds, big for a high school quarterback.

"I am about 6-4, 260, right now. I ran a 4.9 at a combine a while ago. I think I have gotten a little faster since then," said Anderson.

"I have offers from Louisville, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Alabama, Auburn, and West Virginia. Several other schools have offered, but I can't think of who they are right now."

Anderson is considering several schools.

"I have not made a decision. I am still wide open. I do not have a top five or a favorite. I am considering all the schools that have offered me. I would like to start receiving some interest from Florida State, but they have not sent me anything at all."

It will take several things to get Anderson to make a commitment.

"I want to see how all of my visits go. I would like to start hearing more from coaches. I want to see who is the most interested in me, and will I have a chance to play as soon as I get there. I will wait until after my season before I make a decision," said Anderson.
