After improving his standing with Louisville, running back Victor Anderson decided to take an unofficial to the Cardinals big game against Miami. The 5-foot-9, 170-pounder was impressed with Louisville's one-sided victory and his visit around campus.
"It was a pretty good visit. Everybody around there is getting deeper into me being a hometown hero," he said. "After the game, Doug Beaumont committed and many were asking if I'd follow. I told them that I'm not a follower, I'm a leader and if I want to make a choice to change my commitment I will."
Anderson was impressed by the Cardinals lopsided win.
"I thought the game was great," he said. "They executed really well and impressed a lot of people and recruits across the country. I think it should really help their program in the long run. I do feel that Nate Harris was sort of right in saying that Miami wasn't as good as many expected them to be. I don't think that takes anything from Louisville's win.
"As for the running game, Stripling was very impressive and did a good job taking the spot of Michael Bush. He helped Louisville out a lot and found his way to the endzone."
Now the three-star prospect is starting to look at official visits.
"I haven't scheduled any yet, but I owe it to myself and my family to take all my visits," he said. "I plan to check out West Virginia, Louisville, Kentucky, South Florida, Michigan and Michigan State. All those schools have offered with the exception of Michigan, but they are very interested and I'd go there if they did offer because they have a great atmosphere."
On the field, Anderson is keeping busy helping his team to a 3-0 start.
"I think we're working hard in practice and aren't even at the highest point yet. If we keep it up we can be great," he said. "I'm doing well on the year averaging 190 yards a game and 9.8 yards per carry. I have 583 yards rushing on 53 carries and scored 11 touchdowns. My first game wasn't good because of cramping, but since then I think I have been doing a great job."
