Four offers in for St.X's Vic Anderson

After receiving scholarship offers from Louisville and West Virginia prior to the start of his junior year, St.X's Vic Anderson tells that his scholarship count has since doubled...

Prior to the start of his junior season at Louisville's St. Xavier High School, Victor Anderson attended camps at both Louisville and West Virginia, both of which ended in a scholarship offer being extended. Since those two very early offers, the 1st Team All-State performer has added two more to his list of scholarship invitations.

"I have offers from Louisville, Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia right now," said Anderson. "A bunch of other schools are sending a lot stuff. Notre Dame, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Alabama, Auburn and Florida State are some of them."

After making indications early in the recruiting process that one or two schools were in the lead for his services, Anderson now says that it's too early to have favorites.

"I'm wide open right now," he explained. "I don't really have any favorites. Right now there are some days that I want to stay home and play and then there are days that I feel like I want to go away from home to play."

As a junior, Anderson rushed for over 1,500 yards and 26 touchdowns. His 8.1 yards per carry average helped St. X to once again reach the Class 4A state finals.

"I could have had a better season last year because of the injury," said Anderson, who missed two games last fall.

As his final year of prep ball approaches, Anderson, who now measures in at 5-foot-9, 180-pounds, has set a few goals, including a return trip to the state championship.

"Of course I want to win state as a senior," Anderson said. "I also set a goal of rushing for 2,000 yards and making the Army All-American game."

He's also working hard in the off season to improve his chances of playing running back on the college level.

"I'm up to 180 pounds now and I want to get my weight up to around 190," he explained. "I want to play running back in college, so I feel like I need to get my weight up to do that."

Anderson, who will participate in the combine in Louisville on May 20, said he is also considering attending camps at West Virginia, Notre Dame and Tennessee.
