The only thing on Alex Anderson's mind - as it relates to his recruitment, anyway - is a run of unofficial visits. He doesn't talk favorites or frontrunners and is uncomfortable discussing a timetable for a commitment at this juncture.
What he knows is that he has seven scholaship offers, and he intends to explore every school he possibly can before he starts sharing anything resembling a bold take or opinion.
"This summer, I'm going to do a big tour," Anderson said. "I don't know for sure where yet. I sill have to find out, but there will be some visits when summer gets here."
For now, Anderson doesn't offer up much news. One of the only paths he'll agree to go down is discussing which schools are recruiting him the hardest. The Miramar (Fla.) High School running back doesn't name favorites, but he won't try to tell you every school is pursuing him with equal force.
Some programs are in hotter pursuit than others.
"The hardest is probably West Virginia and Wisconsin," Anderson said. "I talk to them the most probably."
Anderson says geography won't factor into his recruitment much, as he insists he has no problem leaving the Southeast for college. Instead, he's in the market for "the right fit," and when Anderson uses that cliché it actually carries meaning.
There is a certain style that best fits his game, and he certainly doesn't mind sharing it.
"The most important thing to me is just what fits the way I play the most," Anderson said. "I'm a downhill runner that wants to play smash-mouth football."
