Anderson Looking for Love from the Jayhawks

He might only be 5'7", but Carlos Anderson's size hasn't stopped him from flying by defenders for a total of 18 touchdowns and over 1,000 yards this season. Carlos also hasn't let his size stand in the way of having the opportunity at a college scholarship, be it in football or track.

"I won’t be making a decision until after the New Year because of track,” Anderson said of his decision. “I might get offers to run track too.”

For someone in Anderson’s position, that certainly makes a lot of sense. He is currently waiting for offers from two schools across the border from where he plays on Friday nights, Blue Springs, Missouri.

“I like Kansas State a lot,” Anderson said about the Wildcats. “They show me a lot of interest. They are playing pretty good this year too.”

As for the other school across the border, Kansas, Anderson isn’t hearing from the coaches, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t listen when they finally stop just sending mail and start calling the electric running back.

“They send me a lot of letters about their school and program. KU is my favorite college and I would certainly like it if they showed more interest.”

Originally from Leavenworth, Anderson certainly wouldn’t mind spending the next four years in Lawrence.

“I’m from Kansas, so it would be cool to play in the state.”

While Anderson waits on offers from Kansas and Kansas State, he will make a visit this weekend and now as secured a scholarship offer from an instate school.

“CMSU (Central Missouri State University) has offered me and I plan to go up to Northern Iowa this weekend too.”

At 5’7” 170 pounds, Anderson certainly gets looked over because of his size. One thing is for sure, no one can overlook his production. Averaging over 150 yards per game rushing in a tough Suburban Big 7 conference, is nothing to overlook. As a shifty runner, who has a great burst with his 4.4 40 yard dash, Anderson will continue to be electric wherever he decides to take his skills.
