Some recruiting gurus say that the city of Houston's Class of 2006 is down compared to recent years. Aldine, Texas, cornerback Terrance Anderson is proving them wrong.
Schools from across the country have come to see Anderson – a 5-foot-11, 180-pound silky athlete. He currently plays quarterback but projects as a receiver or defensive back in college.
"We have had over 45 college recruiters through here and he is receiving love from everyone," Aldine coach Bob Jones said. "He's a dandy."
Some schools showing the love in a scholarship offer include Big 12 schools Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Colorado and Nebraska. Arizona, Houston, Northwestern and Utah have also offered, while Florida, Kansas State, TCU and Stanford are nearing.
Anderson flashed his speed in the regional track meet in the 4 x 100 and 4 x 200 relays, but a dropped baton kept the Mustangs from reaching the state meet.
"I am really open right now and just looking around," Anderson said.
