More offers coming for Anthony
The season for Tuttle (Okla.) started out perfect. Through 10 games they were undefeated. Chandler Anthony, their 6-foot-7 and 295-pound standout offensive tackle, says though that they couldn't continue their magic past the first round of the playoffs.
"We started out our season 10-0 and were district champs," Anthony said. "We came into halftime of the first round playoff game up by 18 points and lost. We should have won that game.
"I am pleased overall with how well my season went. I was named all-district and I was selected second team all-state for all classes by OKPreps. I am also in the running for all-state by the coaches."
Some have wondered where has the attention for a player like Anthony been? Part of the reason that things have just started to pick up for Anthony is that he missed his junior year. The word is getting out though about the road-grading lineman.
"I missed my junior year," Anthony said. "I opted to have surgery on my femur right down by my knee. It was weight-bearing so I really had to stay off of it for a while. It was the right thing to do, to get it fixed, so that I can play in college."
There are no questions about the surgery or that he is cleared to play college football. All of the schools that have looked into Anthony and the injury have said that he's good to go. Anthony says that he will start scheduling visits in January and that there might be some schools waiting to offer if he visits.
"All of the schools that have looked into it have said I am clear to play," Anthony said. "Anyone else that looks should come up with that same answer.
"I had been talking with Kansas State, UCF, Arkansas and Wyoming recently about taking visits. I have an offer from Memphis and I have eight or nine FCS offers, but my dream is really to play FBS football.
"I really just want a chance," Anthony said. "Missing my junior year has hurt me, but teams are popping up and taking a look now. I am going to start scheduling visits in January soon."
Anthony has a 4.0 GPA and scored a 31 on his ACT.
