Anderson Has Options

Miramar (Fla.) running back Alex Anderson has earned roughly a dozen offers to date, providing him with multiple options. The three-star is keeping his list of favorites a mystery, but does identify three programs recruiting him the hardest.

Alex Anderson had endured quite the recruitment thus far.

After his former high school coach and "father-figure" Damon Cogdell left Miramar High for a position with West Virginia, Anderson felt as if his chosen path would be to follow his former leader.

After stepping back and analyzing the overall landscape, Anderson now finds himself a wanted man, being pursued by multiple programs. It's three individual programs, though, fighting the hardest for his services.

"The schools I'm hearing from the most are Wisconsin, N.C. State and West Virginia," Anderson said. "I wouldn't say those are the schools that are sticking out the most, but definitely the ones who keep the most contact with me."

Anderson, 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, rushed for nearly 300 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior, provided a brief thought on those three schools.

"They can allow me to do what I do best, and that's downhill football. They're considered by many as running back "U" and that's what I do best."

N.C. State
"They continue to stay in contact with me, telling me they want me to come up and visit. I'm definitely coming up in the summer to check out the campus."

West Virginia
"West Virginia is more of a passing team, but it won't be a big difference to me because I can catch the ball out of the backfield. Coach (JaJuan) Seider and Cogdell keep in contact with me a lot."

This summer, Anderson aims to visit multiple schools across the east coast.

"Our team plans on taking a tour to several schools," Anderson said. "We plan on visiting Auburn, Georgia, Alabama, West Virginia, Ohio State and all the Florida schools."

Anderson is hopeful to release a "top ten" in the summer, but hasn't finalized a possible commitment date.
