Although he still has three years to go until signing day, Frisco, TX offensive lineman Jack Anderson has already become a well-known name in recruiting circles.
The 2017 prospect is drawing interest from several programs and recently picked up his first offer from Texas Tech. The offer came as a shock for the 6-foot-4, 275-pounder left tackle.
"It was awesome; Coach Kliff (Kingsbury) was on the phone and he told me they want to offer me a full ride," he said. "I was in shock for a while. I'm super excited still."
More offers could be on the way for Anderson. He's hearing from the entire Big 12 and a few SEC schools already and has plans to make a stop to Texas A&M this weekend where his grandfather played football.
"Pretty much every school in the Big 12 I'm talking to; I've talked to the LSU o-line coach and a few SEC schools," he said. "I'll be visiting A&M on Sunday; my grandpa is a legacy there, he played football at A&M so that's exciting."
Last weekend Anderson was one of the top players in attendance at TCU's linemen camp. The big lineman received positive feedback from the coaching staff on his performance which included a nice talk with head coach Gary Patterson.
"I think I showed out in the drills," he said. "I got some real good feedback (from the coaches); there were a few times I wasn't used to stuff but I'll get familiar with it. Coach Patterson pulled me aside and talked to me for a minute so that was pretty good."
Anderson has visited TCU a few times already and knows he's firmly on the coaches' radar.
"I've been talking with Cumbie for a while and visited a couple of times," he said. "I'm on their radar for sure. It was good to see how I fit in with the program and how I compare competition wise."
