Interview: Larry Anam

Anam is a very talented kid from American High in Hialeah. He doesn't get much pub because of so many other talented defensive backs in the area, but going back and watching his jamboree, Anam can play football, period.

He checked in at 5-11 1/2 at Auburn's camp, and looks every bit of that on tape. He is definitely tall enough. He said he was about 170 at his jamboree, and checked into Auburn's camp at 173. He's a skinny kid who has a lot of muscular development still remaining, so he'll fill out to be a 6-0 and 190 after two years in a college program.

Anam had a 34 inch vert at Auburn's camp, and he ran a 4.44 on the same track that Glenn Sharpe ran a 4.36, so you can tell he's got plenty of speed. Anam is also a strong kid for a corner. He legitimately bench presses about 290.

Your current core GPA: 2.4

Your current test score: 850 (note: Anam has already passed both sections of the HSCT).

Which schools called in May: Oklahoma, Auburn, Mississippi, Boston (College), Oklahoma State, Miami, Central Florida, and Western Michigan.

Have any schools sent you a scholarship offer in the mail yet: Yeah, Central Florida and Mississippi have.

Talk about Miami: Coach Kehoe, he's recruiting me and John (Wood, a teammate defensive end). I like the Canes, but I also like Auburn and Oklahoma a lot.

Anam actually plays linebacker at the highschool level. As a junior last season, he had 76 tackles, seven sacks, and two interceptions. He says that's where he'll play again this season, but he's being recruited as a safety. After watching the tape of his jamboree on top of having a passing test score, Anam is definitely a borderline Super 50 prospect. It'll be interesting to see how UM handles his situation as the season progresses, but I'll be on top of it!
