Georgia Lineman Mulls Nebraska Offer

In the search for the next great offensive lineman, Nebraska is looking near and far for the best prospects across the country and appear to have identified another young man from the South that might fit the bill. How did this prospect react to the Nebraska offer and what other schools are in it for his services?

Justin Anderson fits the prototypical build for what you're looking for in an offensive tackle.  He stands at 6' 4", weighs in at 315 pounds and runs a 40-yard dash in 5 seconds flat.  His strength is definitely one of his strong points as he currently benches 350 pounds, squats 485 pounds and cleans 300 pounds.    He has already taken the ACT once scoring a 16 and plans to retake as many times as is necessary to achieve a score he is content with.  He was named All-State, All-Region and All-Area Tackle of the Year and feels he can excel at every area of blocking for his position.

A player of Justin Anderson's size demands attention, especially when you've got an offense like Bill Callahan's West Coast Offense.  The Cornhuskers have taken to identifying players they feel can make a quick impact on the team and Justin is no exception.  While Nebraska is happy with the offer of Justin, the feeling is mutual.  "I was really excited," said Anderson.    Pulling Justin out of the region will be difficult for Nebraska as Justin hasn't decided whether or not he wants to make a visit to Lincoln or not.  The local schools such as Georgia, Georgia Tech and Florida State are all getting nods for a visit at this point.  He did say that a trip to Nebraska for the Spring Game was in the working stages, however.

While Justin is beginning to see the list of schools offering him grow, he doesn't feel that the current list demands a leader.  "It's a pretty even situation," he said.  While the new recruiting year is starting to pass from its initial stages into the intense battles it typically becomes, no doubt that the schools that have piqued Justin's interest are going to do what they can to distance themselves from the pack and do so quickly.  When asked about possibly camping at Nebraska, Anderson cited an already filled itinerary where he will be visiting the Down and Dirty Camp, a Nike Camp and possibly an FCA Camp.

While Nebraska seems to be behind the pack a bit in terms of grabbing Justin's interest, they do have one saving grace, it appears: the coaching staff.  "I like the coaches. They're cool and they're fun people to talk to," said Anderson.  Specifically, one coach has stuck out as Justin's favorite from Nebraska.  "Randy Jordan, he told me that he's from a small town like me, so he can relate to me well," said Justin.  Anderson also agreed that he and Jordan were like like two peas in a pod.
