Chris Anderson, a defensive tackle out of Jacksonville (Fla.) Mandarin, originally signed a letter of intent with Florida State for the class of 2002. However, the 6-foot-2 and 270 pounder failed to academically qualify and had to enroll in prep school. Last year Anderson enrolled in Hargrave Military Academy in hopes of getting his grades up and improving his test score enough to be eligible in time to start his career this fall with the Noles.

Anderson who recently took the SAT scored only a 790, he needed a 810.

Next Saturday Anderson will retake the test, and Mandarin head football coach Richard Burnoski hopes he improves.

As a senior, Anderson was honored all-first coast player of year and second team all-state by recording 27 sacks. As a junior, he registered 101 tackles and 22 sacks.

If Anderson fails to increase his test scores he will consider attending Georgia Military College.
