Profile - Colin Anderson
Brooks High School recruit Colin Anderson is another of the talented linebackers from the state of Alabama. Anderson is closing in on 20 offers after receiving his most recent offer this week.
The latest offer for Colin comes from Georgia Tech. Colin was offered by Tech defensive line coach Mike Pelton. “He wants me to come to Atlanta for a visit. “I’ve only been on campus there for a short time” Colin plans to visit this summer. “They’ve taken the time to scout and recruit me so I should visit and see the school.”
Tech likes Colin’s versatility and they feel he could play either outside linebacker position. “Coach Pelton likes my speed, my size (6’2”-212), and the fact that I’m a natural football player.” Coach Pelton feels that Colin would be easy to coach.
The offer from Tech brings Anderson’s offer total to 19. “They are offers that I feel are legit and will turn into written offers when September 1 rolls around.” Colin feels that some of those schools are recruiting him harder than others but he doesn’t want to name them. “I know the schools that want me and in the end that is all that matters.”
In addition to a visit to Tech, Colin and his family will be traveling to Iowa to visit family this summer. “We will take visits to Iowa and Iowa State.” Colin has no plans to camp anywhere this summer and doesn’t have any other visits planned at this time.
Look for Anderson to make a late June decision. Colin doesn’t want the drama of letting his decision play out. “My final year is supposed to be fun and I plan on making it be that way.”
When looking for the right school Colin knows that he’ll be looking for the best combination of academics and athletics. “I have a 4.33 GPA and I really take pride in my school work.” Colin feels that all the rest of the things that go into recruiting will take care of themselves.
In the meantime, Colin is spending the off-season running the 200 and 400 meters and the respective relays for his high school track team. “I use the track season to keep myself in condition and to help the track coach who is also my football coach.”
