Texas Tech Legacy Is No Stranger to the Jones

Frisco sophomore center Jack Anderson, a Texas Tech legacy, has been to many Red Raider football games at the Jones, but is excited about visiting this weekend as a recruit. RaiderPower.com caught up with the four-star prospect to get the scoop on where he stands with Tech and his overall recruitment.

Frisco offensive lineman Jack Anderson will be making the first of two planned trips this season to Texas Tech this weekend for the West Virginia game.

Anderson, a 6-foot-4, 275-pound sophomore center is rated as a four-star prospect by Scout with offers from Arizona State, Arkansas, Arkansas State, New Mexico, New Mexico State, TCU, Texas Tech and UAB.

The Texas Tech legacy has been making trips to Lubbock his whole life because of his family who has attended Tech, which includes his sister (Class of 2017), father (1990) and uncle (1992). He said his favorite memory at a Tech game was when he got a picture with former coach Mike Leach and talked to Michael Crabtree and Graham Harrell after a game.

“I have been to the campus more times than I can count growing up,” Anderson said. “Dad took me to a ton of games.”

This trip will be different for Anderson because he will visit as a recruit. After keeping in contact with the coaches on a regular basis Anderson said the purpose of this visit will be to show his dad around the facility and talk with the staff.

Anderson will be in good company this weekend as Texas Tech’s two biggest commits for 2014 will be there along with other recruits. He said he talks to Jarrett Stidham and Breiden Fehoko all the time and that they recruit him more than the coaches do.

“I would get really good if I blocked Breiden all day,” Anderson said, “and Jarrett makes plays, would make my life easier.”

Along with keeping in contact with the commits Anderson said Texas Tech is recruiting him the hardest, along with TCU, and he keeps in touch with offensive line coach Lee Hays.

“Me and Hays are super close,” Anderson said. “I probably talk to Hays and [Trey] Haverty probably once a week or two.”

Along with this visit, Anderson plans to visit Oklahoma State on Oct. 25 when they host West Virginia and another Tech visit for the Oklahoma game on Nov. 15.
