2014 offensive tackle Alex Anderson of Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro HS made his way across state lines to check out San Diego State's "Warrior Day" this past Saturday. With six offers on the board at this point, he's become a sought after prospect among west coast schools.
Anderson is still early on in the process and isn't ready to name a list, "It's too early, I'm just keeping my options open right now."
He knew the coaches pretty well after talking to them over the phone several times, and learned even more after getting to visit the campus. "They just know what they're talking about, they're really educated. They know what they want," Anderson said.
"The visit was great! The facilities were pretty nice, but I'm not too worried about those."
What did Anderson enjoy most about his visit?
"Easily the campus. It's really green and open. And also really modern."
The visit to San Diego State helped the Aztecs make a case to Anderson that it's the right school for him, "Yeah, it did. But I really don't have a lot to choose from right now so I'll have to see how it plays out."
In the time since the football season ended at Saguaro, Anderson and his teammates have been busy getting ready for next season, "We've got a workout program at the school. We've been getting a lot stronger."
Anderson noted "my feet and my hands" as his strong suits along the offensive line right now. Before he reports to a college campus he knows exactly what needs some tuning in his arsenal. "Definitely my pad level and some maturity in my game," Anderson said.
Though a college decision is still in the future, Anderson knows what he's looking for, "Academics, location, and a good football program. I want to play as soon as possible, but I'm open to redshirting."
"I definitely want to take some visits first. I could commit anytime between midseason and signing day," Anderson said.
