Riverside (Calif.) J.W. North receiver Dres Anderson became the second Inland Empire receiver to commit to Utah this week when he picked the Utes on Thursday.
"I committed to Utah," said Anderson. "I just feel it's a great fit for me. I talked to their offensive coordinator, Dave Schramm, and he was real cool and he feels I could be a great asset to the team and so do I."
Anderson joins fellow I.E. native Kenneth Scott in picking the Utes, Scott doing so on Thursday as well, and giving Utah a pair of California 100 members by Scout.com.
And Anderson is very aware of the recent success of the Utes.
"They finished #2 in the nation last year and have an eight-game bowl winning streak so that is awesome," said Anderson. "They run my type of offense, the four-wide, and that's good for me."
And the academic side of things also weighed heavily.
"They have a great academic program," said Anderson. "In business and finance, they are ranked in the top 30 in the country and that's what I want to major in so that is great."
And now North can turn his attention to his senior year.
"I'm kind of glad to get the process over because it was stressful, but it was also fun and exciting," said Anderson.
Anderson is the son of former Los Angeles Rams receiver, Willie "Flipper" Anderson.
As a 2008 junior, Anderson had 29 receptions for 607 yards and six touchdowns.
