Others such as Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Notre Dame and Oklahoma were giving chase, but much of that came to a halt in mid-April when Anderson gave an early verbal commitment to the Mountaineers.
"I wanted to focus on the season and work on my grades, so I decided to get it out of the way," he told BlueGoldNews.com of the reason for making an early commitment. "I'm ready to stop getting questions about it."
Anderson put on a display at Scout.com's All-American held in Louisville in May, earning 1st Team All-Combine honors.
Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst Jamie Newberg recently described Anderson as, "one of the most elusive and electrifying prospects among the Class of 2007."
"What Anderson gives you is a home run threat because he has the uncanny ability to make defenders miss," continued Newberg. "He has super vision and balance, breakaway speed, he can start and stop and accelerate quickly and he also has the unique ability to change directions."
Recently a rumor surfaced that had the St. Xavier star backing out of his pledge to West Virginia, but Anderson says that his commitment hasn't changed.

Anderson, who listed the family atmosphere and strong fan support in Morgantown as key reasons for his early choice, will give a few schools an opportunity to impress him prior to national signing day.
"I'm planning on taking all of my official visits," he said.
This weekend Anderson, along with St. X teammate Daniel Passafiume, will attend camp at West Virginia.
