Florida RB Has Favorite

Chris Anderson

Chris Anderson is one of the top running back prospects from South Florida this year and the Lauderdale Lakes (Boyd Anderson) standout talked about the latest.

Chris Anderson was one of the leading rushers in the entire state last season at Hollywood Hills. He finished the regular season with close to 2,000 yards.

He transferred to Boyd Anderson for his senior season and isn't getting as many touches.

"It's going alright," Anderson said. "The season ain't over. We're 3-1 with some big games coming up. We play a district game against South Plantation this week."

Anderson said the adjustment to being the main clog in the Hills offense to playing a different role in BA's offense this season has been tough.

"At Hills, I was getting the ball 25 times a game, sometimes 30," he said. "Now I'm getting about 14 touches a game because we play in a spread offense. As long as we keep winning, I'm fine with that."

Anderson has 54 carries for 244 yards and two touchdowns on the season. He talked about the latest on the recruiting front.

"I haven't scheduled any visits but I have two in mind that I wanna take," he said. "They are Clemson and Wisconsin. I've been talking to coach Blackwell (at Clemson). He's been calling and I like him. Wisconsin contacted the wrong Chris Anderson (from Hollywood Christian). He gave them my new number so they should be calling me."

In addition to those two, Anderson is being recruited by several other programs.

"I'm also getting those calls from Troy, Toledo, UCF, Indiana, Rutgers, and North Carolina," he said.

There's one school that sticks out above the rest, according to Anderson.

"I haven't really thought about having a leader but I really like Clemson," he said. "They run the ball, the coaches are nice, and the weather isn't much different than down here. It's north of here but not really up north as far as weather goes."
