Anderson Eager To Be A Gopher

Minnesota prides itself on developing their walk-ons and them making an impact in their Gopher career. Apple Valley (MN.) safety Davis Anderson could be the next as he accepted a PWO from Minnesota and talks about that decision.

Minnesota has added another piece to the puzzle in their recruiting class when Apple Valley (MN.) senior safety Davis Anderson accepted the preferred walk-on offer from the Gophers.

"I'm verbally committed to Minnesota and plan to sign on signing day with a preferred walk-on offer," Anderson told GopherDigest. "As a kid born and raised in Minnesota, I've always wanted to represent the University of Minnesota. That drew the initial interest, but after talking with the coaching staff I knew that was the place for me. You can tell the coaching staff takes a genuine interest and care for their team just like a family."

The 6-2, 190-pound local safety talks about his interaction with the Golden Gopher coaching staff and what he will be bringing to this football team in terms of his skill set.

"I talked to Coach Glasscock and Coach Kill during my recruitment," said Anderson. "Coach Kill said he's excited to have me and that he can tell that I have a lot of potential. I feel like that I am a rangy safety and I'm smart. I've started to work with former Gopher, Tyrone Carter this year and he taught me so much about the game and how to play smarter."

Anderson will be taking his official visit to Minnesota this weekend as well.
