"I feel fine," said Anderson of the injury. "It's just a bruise. We were just being cautious and went to the hospital to be sure, but I feel fine now. I'm 100% for it."
Anderson has helped the Tigers race to 5-1 start this fall and is once again among the top running backs in the state. Through six games, the 5-foot-9, 185-pound back has gained 698 yards on 13 touchdowns on 72 carries.
"It's going pretty good," he said of his final year of prep football. "We playing pretty good as a team, but we have to keep working hard if we want to succeed."
With continued impressive production, Anderson has received constant and increasing interest from a number of college programs. The one-time West Virginia verbal commitment explains that he has one school at the top of his list.
"I'm not going to let any news out, but it's going pretty good for me right now," he said. "I'm pretty sure I know where I want to go, but I'm not ready to tell anyone yet. Actually, I want to take my visits first, but I'm pretty sure I know where I want to go."
While no dates have yet been set, Anderson does have a short list of programs that are under consideration for a potential official visit.
"I haven't done that yet, but I'm going to start setting those up in a few weeks," he continued, adding that there are a small number of schools being considered for future trips. "West Virginia, Kentucky, Notre Dame, Michigan, Louisville and maybe South Florida."
St. Xavier will host Pleasure Ridge Park (5-1) on Friday night at DuPont Manual Stadium.
