Miami (Fla.) Braddock athlete Jarvon Anderson knows he isn't necessarily the tallest or biggest prospect out there, at 5-foot-9 and a 198 pounds, but he believes his ability combined with his well filled out frame makes him an appealing prospect for colleges.
"I think it is my size and my ability to play a number of positions," Anderson said.
So far, one school - Florida Atlantic - has recognized that ability and offered the South Florida prospect.
"It felt good," Anderson said of receiving the offer. "I felt real good."
Anderson spoke with Florida Atlantic assistant Johnny Frost briefly after receiving the offer.
"We didn't talk that much because I think he was in a rush," Anderson said. "He just said that they had offered me."
At this stage, Anderson said he doesn't know a great deal about the local program, but intends to learn more.
"I haven't been to the school yet, but I have been on their website," Anderson said. "I plan to visit there this summer but I don't know when."
Anderson is also receiving interest from Eastern Michigan, Florida A&M, Florida International, Florida State, Kentucky, Michigan State, and Southern Illinois.
"I am looking for a place where I can get a good education and be a part of a good team," Anderson said. "That is about it."
He does not have a timetable for making a decision at this stage of his recruitment.
As a junior, Anderson rushed for 1,148 yards and 12 touchdowns.
