Word Getting Out on Chaz Anderson

Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola cornerback Chaz Anderson has one offer but more could be on the horizon and he's hopeful a former teammate's connection comes through...

Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola cornerback Chaz Anderson (6-0, 175), patiently awaited his first offer and it finally came last week, from one of the top programs nationally.

Boise State jumped on board first for Anderson, the first of what he hopes are many offers.

"When Boise State offered, it was definitely a surprise," said Anderson. "We had been in contact and I had developed a relationship with Coach (Marcel) Yates but I was honestly surprised when they offered me."

Now Anderson is hopeful that more schools will follow suit.

"Boise State is a bigtime program and I think other schools will see that and take a closer look at me," said Anderson.

Anderson said he's hearing from schools like Arizona State, Oregon State, SMU, UCLA, USC, Washington, Arizona and San Diego State and also likes Penn State.

"The schools I'm most interested in are Boise State, UCLA, Arizona, Washington, SMU and Penn State," said Anderson. "Boise State is definitely standing out for me. I really like Coach Yates."

One of Anderson's secondary mates last fall at Loyola, Lee Hightower, signed with the Broncos in February. Another teammate, Jerry Neuheisel, signed with UCLA.

"I'm hoping to go see Boise State, maybe on an official visit in the fall," said Anderson. "And I've talked with Jerry about telling his dad to take a closer look at me."

Anderson plays for 1925 All-Stars and will play in a slew of tournaments with them this spring and summer as well as plans to go to the Stanford Nike Camp and potentially the Boise State and UCLA camps.

Academically, he has a 3.0 and will take the SAT on May 7.

Brandon is in his seventh year with Scout.com, currently as the West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
