Aldine High School is a sleeping giant, which has been stirred by an athletic quarterback who came into his own during his junior season.
Terrance Anderson (6-1, 185-pounds) rushed for over 800 yards and passed for over 600 yards en route to a 6-4 season. Aldine, a program that won the Class 5A state championship and national championship in 1990, has not been able to keep up its winning tradition over the past decade.
"Terrance can play anywhere on the field – he's just a terrific athlete," second-year head coach Bill Jones said. "He'll be academically qualified and should lead our team to a winning season next year."
Anderson has been offered by Northwestern, which joins Texas A&M, Iowa, LSU and Texas in his top five.
"I don't have to play quarterback in college," he said. "I'd by receiver or defensive back, it doesn't matter to me. My current favorite is Texas A&M. I really like the direction of their program and Coach Franchione.
"I'd like to take my five visits," he said. "If my favorites offer me I'll be really excited, but I think I still want to take my visits."
He plans to attend the Nike Camp in Fort Worth, Peyton Manning's camp in Louisiana, and he has been invited to compete for a spot to attend the EA Elite 11 Quarterback Camp.
