Kyle Anderton Profile
The 6-foot-4, 255-pound athlete (who projects at tight end in college) committed to the Vanderbilt coaches on October 26th, 2014.
"It was always my dream to pick a hat on Signing Day, but I couldn't wait. I was thinking the opportunity might pass me by there if someone else were to come in and it just felt right all along with Vanderbilt. The coaches are awesome. I've been to three Vanderbilt homes games and the place has a great feel to it. It's where I want to be."
Kyle Anderton chose Vanderbilt over offers from Memphis and Charlotte.
"Vanderbilt liked my size to play the tight end position. My grades were also something they liked about me. Basically, they felt like I was a good fit in what they wanted in their student-athlete. I'm excited to play tight end. I think it's the second best position to play besides quarterback. You get to help block in the running game and catch the ball in the passing game. It's a position that becomes increasingly more important as the game evolves. It used to be primarily a blocking position but now there's a lot more to it than that. I know I have a lot to learn, but I've been watching the Vanderbilt tight ends and have been very impressed with them. There's a lot I can learn from them as well as Coach Gdowski."
Anderton was a three-year team captain and a two-year team team MVP. He was a three-year starter at quarterback. Anderton helped the Bison to 2013 district and region titles. He total more than 1,800 yards of offense and 21 touchdowns as a senior. Anderton was invited to play in Tennessee East vs. West Game and earned 2014 Music City Bowl Tradition of Service Award. Anderton also lettered in basketball in high school. His father, Mark, coached collegiate football and was a defensive lineman at UT-Martin. His mother, Yvonne, is a basketball coach and played basketball at Gardner-Webb.
