Regardless of classification, Manvel (TX) safety Deontay Anderson is regarded as one of the top safety prospects in the nation.
The 2016 prospect is already nearing thirty offers with an impressive list suited for the nation’s No. 37 overall prospect in the Scout.com Top 300. Among the schools that have already offered the 6-foot-1, 192-pounder is Alabama, USC, Florida State, Clemson, Auburn, Baylor, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Stanford, Texas, Texas A&M, USC and TCU.
Anderson visited TCU for a Frogs’ sophomore day a few months ago and was very impressed with his time spent in Ft. Worth.
“It was great, it was a blessing to go up there,” he said. “I love the coaches and love Coach (Gary) Patterson; he’s a great defensive minded coach.”
As a hard-hitting safety with a nose for the football, Anderson says he likes the way the Frogs utilize their safeties in the 4-2-5 scheme.
“I like their style of defense; it’s fast and physical,” Anderson said. “They said I could fit in great and play safety right off the bat.”
Anderson competed with his Manvel teammates last weekend at the Texas 7v7 State Championship where the Mavericks were one of the top teams in attendance; advancing to the semi-finals of the championship bracket.
Up next for Anderson are some unofficial visits.
