Football season has arrived, it speeds up things for some while it slows down things for others.
High School prospects are busy and focused on their high school season, but that doesn't stop the recruiting process for most. College coaches were able to start making weekly calls on September 1, so a lot of top prospects phones are definitely ringing.
BuffPlayBook.com caught up with Alex Anderson on Wednesday night to get an update on his recruitment. The talented offensive tackle currently holds nine offers and is hoping for more.
"Things have slowed down a little," Anderson admitted. "I don't have any new offers, I currently have nine offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State and Utah State."
Anderson got the opportunity this spring to take an unofficial visit to Colorado, it's apparent the Buffs made a good impression on him.
"I loved it up there," Anderson said. "Beautiful campus, I loved the weather, I loved how all the buildings had the same type of bricks."
Anderson has Colorado in his current top 3.
"Right now my top schools that have offered me are Colorado, San Diego State and San Jose State," Anderson said. "Colorado will definitely be my first official visit, I want to set that up in the near future."
Recruiting is all about building relationships and it appears that Anderson has built solid relationships with several of the Colorado coaches.
"Coach Bernardi is a great coach and a great guy," Anderson said. "He is the type of coach, if I don't end up playing for him, he is the type of person I would like to keep in contact with."
Anderson also has been impressed with the Buff's new head football Coach Mike MacIntyre.
"I love how he turns programs around," Anderson said of MacIntyre. "He is a great person with a great coaching philosophy, he is awesome to talk to."
According to Anderson, he plans on waiting until after his senior season before he takes his visits and makes a decision.
Anderson didn't get a chance to watch Colorado romp Colorado State in the Rocky Mountain Showdown, but he was aware of the outcome.
"Colorado won in impressive fashion," Anderson said. "It's impressive what they are doing in Boulder."
