Recruiting: Anderson Gives OSU Early Present

Terrence Anderson originally said he was going to make his decision public on Christmas Day, but the Aldine, Texas, athlete has made his decision between the Cowboys and the Sooners -- picking Oklahoma State. That has to rank as Christmas coming early in the OSU football office. Anderson was one of the Cowboys' top targets to help at cornerback and it turns out that Anderson may help on both sides of the ball.

"That is a possiblity," Anderson said while speaking from a high school basketball tournament game in Houston. "I'm just supporting my school. We're playing our rival (Aldine) Eisenhower," added Anderson.

Anderson went on to say that the OSU coaches had told him that he could play on defense and also see some time at wide receiver on offense with his blazing speed. The 6-0, 173-pounder is one of the top prospects in all of Texas. He had visited Oklahoma on Nov. 11 and OSU on Dec. 2. Since then he has been wrestling with the two schools, although he had said several times that Oklahoma State had surged into the lead. So why announce today?

"I did it this morning," said Anderson. "I called the coaches. It was my time. I had been going between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State for so long and I didn't think OU was showing as much interest so I felt like it was no choice. I wanted to go to Oklahoma State and they have kind of been my favorite all along."

We'll have more on Anderson, but suffice to say that he is the highest rated prospect out of Texas that the Cowboys have received a commitment from thus far.
