Big Day for Anderson

After battling through adversity his sophomore season, Miramar 2015 running back Alex Anderson saw his offer list explode Tuesday, getting scholarships from Boston College, Georgia Tech, North Carolina State and Wisconsin.

Florida has always been known for having some of the best athletes in every class and a school that is never short on talent is Miramar High School. The powerhouse in Miramar has an up-and-coming sophomore running back in 6-1, 205-pound Alex Anderson and Wisconsin enter the mix for his services Tuesday.

"I was called to Coach Cogdell office and he told that Wisconsin has offered me a scholarship," Anderson told Badger Nation. "My reaction was just calm and relaxed. I have to stay humble and not get to big headed because when you work hard and do your best, then you expect great things in return. I don't know much about Wisconsin, but I do plan on making a visit and attending the camps."

This past season was a real struggle for Anderson adjusting to not seeing the field with so much talent on his team, but is working hard to change that.

"I had about 15 carries for about 250 yards, but I was a young kid new to Miramar," he said. "It was just a learning year for me last year. It was kind of hard at first not being able to play because I was young, but Coach Cogdell told me to just keep working hard and my time will come. I learned to stay humble and keep patient this year. I plan on this upcoming season getting my name out across the country."

Despite the low numbers of production on the field, Anderson still has the attributes and talent to succeed at the next level, which many schools are already very aware of. This summer he is looking to further see some of all these schools and find out what they got.

"I have offers from Wisconsin, Georgia Tech, Boston College, West Virginia, North Carolina State and Tennessee," he said. "This summer I would like to visit some of these schools and teams like South Florida, Miami, Florida State, Florida and Alabama."
