Kentucky RB Postpones Official

Victor Anderson was scheduled to take his North Carolina official visit this Friday, but it appears he'll need to reschedule it.

"I was supposed to come up this weekend, but I haven't talked to Coach ‘Thig' [Tommy Thigpen] in a little while so I wasn't sure what was going on," said Anderson. "I'm still planning on visiting some time – if possible. I'm going to call Coach ‘Thig' and set up something."

With an official visit set with Louisville on January 19th, Anderson's postponed trip to Chapel Hill will most likely be rescheduled for the final weekend of January or the first weekend of February.

Anderson has already taken official visits to Kentucky and West Virginia, the school he's verbally committed to. The 5-foot-9, 185-pound tailback from Louisville (Ky.) St. Xavier is considering South Florida and Michigan State for his final visit.

These official visits are being taken to assure Anderson that West Virginia is the best place for him.

"I'm still committed to West Virginia," said Anderson. "I just want to look around and see if there's anything out there that may more interest me. But as of right now, I'm going to sign with West Virginia."

Like many other January official visitors, Anderson didn't begin to receive interest from North Carolina until December.

"Coach ‘Thig' had text messaged me right before Christmas and I have been talking to him ever since," said Anderson. "He said he saw my highlight film. He said he really liked my highlight film and it would be nice if I came there."

However, North Carolina has yet to officially extend Anderson a scholarship offer.

"Through the phone [they have offered], but not firmly, yet," said Anderson.

Despite the lack of a campus visit, Anderson has developed strong feelings for the Tar Heels.

"I love North Carolina," said Anderson. "I've been loving North Carolina since I grew up. I have family that live right down the street from the Dean Dome. I think it's an awesome place."

During his senior season, Anderson rewrote the St. Xavier record books. By rushing for 1,458 yards and 22 touchdowns on 127 carries (11.5-yard average), Anderson became St. Xavier's all-time career rusher and scorer. For his prep career, he collected 75 touchdowns and 4,008 yards.
