La Mesa (Calif.) Helix defensive end Anthony Anderson, one of the standouts at the UnderArmour/ Combine in Los Angeles last month, has made his college decision and will

La Mesa (Calif.) Helix defensive end Anthony Anderson received his first offer from Oregon last month.

A few weeks later, and Anderson took the Ducks up on the offer.

"I committed to Oregon," said Anderson. "I remember seeing them play football and I always wanted to be a Duck. They were the first school to offer and they saw me for what I was, and that made me feel good."

Anderson contacted the coaches to let them know he wanted to be a Duck.

"I called Coach Neal and committed to him," said Anderson. "Then Coach (Mike) Bellotti asked if I was serious and I told him yes. They were pretty happy."

Anderson plays on both sides of the ball, and is ranked as one of the top tight ends in the West, but he'll move solely to defensive end in college.

"They want me for defensive end and that's what I want to play," said Anderson.

He's not yet visited Eugene, but plans to in the very near future.

"I'm planning to go either this summer or during the season, like in October," said Anderson.

Anderson said that other schools were getting involved, but he's not going to change his mind. "I'm solid in that commitment," said Anderson. "But I'm still going to play hard. It's nice though to have it out of the way."

Anderson joins teammate Levine Toilolo in committing to a Pac-10 school, with Toilolo headed to Stanford.
