Does Anderson have offer from Army?
only takes a minute to realize that Andre Anderson out of Cedar Hill (TX) Cedar Hill High School carries many "A" level personality traits, which speaks to his upbeat temperament and competitive drive.
"I just got in, all is great ... my coach took me out for my birthday," shared Anderson, who appeared to still be in a celebratory mood as he talked about the schools that have already offered him.
"I have offers from Rice, Louisiana Tech, Air Force, UTEP, Utah State and few others that I can't recall right now."
One school that the 5-foot-11, 195 pound athlete is considering, has yet to offer, although Anderson is confident that is will be just a matter of time.
"Army has said they were going to offer me, but no official offer yet," he adds.
"I am highly considering both Army and Air Force. I haven't visited any of the academies yet, but Coach Morgan from Air Force he has really been on me tough ... he wants to get me up there to see what it's like at Colorado Springs."
Although listed as a wide receiver, Anderson, who could project at a number of skilled position at the next level is currently running Cedar Hill's spread offense at quarterback.
"I'm being recruited by most schools as a wide receiver or defensive back, but all three of the academies are recruiting me as a quarterback." declares Anderson, who also participates in both track and power-lifting at Cedar Hill.
Anderson runs 4x100M (10.9), 4x200M and open 200m (22.1) and when it comes to his power-lifting the Texas native claims to have a squat high of 545 pounds and max bench press is 275 pounds.
However, where Anderson really get his juices flowing is on the gridiron and he is not shy about what he feels his strong points are as a ball player. "I'm not the fastest guy, but I can outrun a lot of guys and love the ball in my hands, and I can also block," he shares. "But I try to be the best all around player that I can."
At Cedar Hill, Anderson's talents have been limited to playing offense, but maintains an open mind both at the high school and collegiate level.
"I haven't played any defense, but if I were to get on the dark-side and play a little defense, I would most likely be a corner or a safety," says Anderson.
"On the next level? I would definitely choose to play offense, but I would be more than open to play defense as well.
Anderson currently maintains a 3.2 GPA and plans on majoring in architectural engineering.
