Kevin Anderson (6-0, 175, 4.45) knows what he wants in a school, and it's not one that has a run-heavy offense.
"I'm looking for a good fan base, a good sound football family, a good coaching staff and a good offense that spreads the ball around -- not like a running school. I'm also looking for good academics, of course," said Anderson.
The Cougars have offered a full ride, along with ASU, SMU and UW.
"Washington State, they're pretty cool. I like (what I've heard) about their team atmosphere. Arizona State is a great school, and they have really big crowds...I like them a lot because it's kind of close so my family could see me but I also don't have a problem with moving. I've been to the University of Washington...that was great and they treated me really good," said Anderson.
Distance won't be a factor, said Anderson, but he was unsure of summer camp plans beyond the two L.A. schools, USC and UCLA. He said he hoped to take an unofficial to Oregon at the end of July.
ANDERSON SAID HE doesn't plan on making a decision until after the season and wants to see who else might step up with an offer.
"I'm thinking about taking my time and keeping my options open," said Anderson.
Of the schools that haven't offered, Anderson said he has high interest in USC, along with Oregon, UCLA, Arizona and Cal.
"I'm a playmaker. Wherever I go, I'm going to make plays. I take offense when a defensive back steps in front of me on the field...coaches have said they like the way I get off the line, how my routes are really crisp, that I have good hands and that I make plays," said Anderson.
Over 13 games as a junior, Anderson logged 50 receptions for 762 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also had 8 carries for 150 yards and a touchdown.
