Anderson announced his offer from Maryland on Tuesday afternoon.
The offer from the Terps is the 14th for the gifted tight end, joining the one he already had from Alabama, Arizona State, Auburn, East Carolina, Iowa State, Louisville, Mississippi, Oregon, South Carolina, TCU, Tennessee, UCF and Utah.
As a freshman last season. Anderson took a back seat to Arkansas-bound Jeremy Patton, but he still managed to post 14 receptions for 218 yards and two scores while playing in all 12 games for the Matadors.
"I feel like I can play a traditional tight end role, but this year with (Patton), I got split out wide more," Anderson noted. "For a guy my size, I have good speed and I think that's what really sets me apart from the other tight ends out there. I can outrun corners and also use my size to be a big target for my quarterback."
Anderson enjoyed a solid prep career, graduating from powerhouse Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Ca.) High School, but he was unable to get qualified, so he opted to sign with Arizona Western and get his name on recruiting lists.
"I wasn't able to qualify and with the success they've had here as a program and the amount of guys they get moved on to four-year programs, I just felt like it was the best place for me to accomplish my goals," Anderson said.
The talented tight end will finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2017 football season.
