Anderson Close to Making the Call

Kanyia Anderson is one of most feared defensive players in Virginia. The Oscar Smith High (Chesapeake, Va.) standout will likely make his college decision sometime in the near future.

With the season opener and national showdown against Byrnes High (Duncan, S.C.) just days away, Kanyia Anderson appears to be closing in on a college decision.

"I'm kind of leaning toward ODU," he said. "I'm still considering Cal, but I really like ODU."

The decision could come as soon as Saturday.

"I talked to my parents and they didn't want me to commit to early," said the 6-foot-2, 215-pound outside linebacker. "They wanted me wait a little longer. I might make my decision after the game Saturday."

Although he is ready to make his decision, he is more concerned with his senior season at Oscar Smith.

"We are improving day by day, and we are getting better," Anderson said. "We are working toward winning the district, region, and state (championship)."

Last season, Anderson played a huge role in Oscar Smith's state championship run, totaling 115 tackles and 22 sacks. Anderson also earned all-district, Tidewater, region, and second team all-state honors. Along with Old Dominion and California, Anderson also holds offers from Cornell, Furman, and James Madison. Oscar Smith hosts Byrnes at 7 p.m. on Saturday.
