"I'm a mixture of a big-play guy who can also catch the short pass and turn it into a long pass.  I go across the middle a lot but basically I'm a player who can strike from anywhere on the field.  I also return punts and kickoffs.

I started talking with Coach Kiffin at USC after they were writing me letters and we had a real good conversation.  I also talked with Coach Carroll and he explained to me their offense and what they are trying to do and I think it's an offense I can succeed in.  My goal is to come in and make an immediate impact as a freshman and I really like how they want to establish a go-to featured receiver because I think I could be that guy.  I sent them a tape and pretty shortly after that they FedEx'ed me some information and then Coach Carroll called and verbally offered me a scholarship.  He seemed like a pretty nice guy, definitely someone I could play for.  I'm not too big on needing to stay close to home so that's a school I'll be taking a long look at.  Some of my other favorites at this point at Florida, Florida State, Miami, LSU, Tennessee and North Carolina."

Anthony says the Trojan coaches will be paying him a visit this month during the evaluation period and we will follow up after that visit to see how things went.
