Miramar (Fla.) running back Alex Anderson became the second Patriot in one week to re-open his recruitment, saying he wanted to make an effort to explore additional opportunities outside of West Virginia.
Recently, Miramar four-star safety Kendrell McFadden re-opened his recruitment after being committed to the Mountaineers for nearly one full year.
Anderson, a 6-foot, 200-pound running back, broke the news on social media.
“After a long talk with my father we came to a decision that I officially open back up my recruitment and explore my options and give everyone a fair shot until further notice it is wvu and they continue to be in the mix,” Anderson stated on Twitter.
West Virginia has continued its search for additional running backs in the class. Of late, the Mountaineers have offered Lakeland (Fla.) T.J. Simmons and secured an official visit from current Pittsburgh commit Darrin Hall. The Mountaineers are still firmly in the race for Miami (Fla.) four-star Jordan Cronkrite, too.
Anderson insists, however, the Mountaineers are still firmly in the mix.
“I just want to make sure I’m making the right decision to be honest,” Anderson explained. “I feel like WVU is family but I have to double check. This is one of the biggest decisions of my life.”
To date, Anderson has yet to take an official visit to West Virginia. He hopes to visit the Mountaineers along with other potential schools next month.
