TCU Lands 3-Star Running Back Darius Anderson

TCU lands state title winner in 3-star running back Darius Anderson out of George Ranch

TCU landed a big commitment on Wednesday night, as Darius Anderson announced via Twitter that he will be going to TCU.

Anderson was a huge part of George Ranch's state championship run, racking up 2,274 rushing yards and 32 TDs for the Longhorns as they went 16-0 en route to the Texas 5A high school football state championship. It was part of a magical year for the Richmond, Texas, native, who was given the state championship MVP award after racking up 288 yards of rushing and scoring twice.

He even got recognition from Congress for his play on the field.

Anderson, who stands just under 5'11 and weighs 182 pounds, is ranked as the No. 11 running back prospect in the state by Scout. He runs a verified 4.74 40-yard dash and uses that speed to burst through even the smallest of holes.

His ability to cut back and move with minimal motion is a huge asset, and his hands are quite good as a backfield receiver. His talents at ducking and dodging will make him a threat in the open field and his acceleration rate will get him past several college defenders.

He had offers from more than 15 schools, and was originally a Missouri commit until he reopened his recruitment on December 22.

His offers included Alabama, Texas A&M, Texas, Houston and Utah.
