Blue Springs, Mo., running back Carlos Anderson has been a busy man this spring. For example this past weekend he not only had a track meet, but he was also able to take a visit to Kansas State's spring game.
"I got there late because of my track meet, so I didn't get to really talk to a lot of the coaches like I usually do when I'm up there," Anderson, who is 5-foot-7 and 166 pounds, said.
"I still had a really good time. The coaches and players are all nice guys. I like the atmosphere down there. It's pretty cool. They had a lot of fans there at the game. Carson Coffman looked really good, too. I was impressed by him."
"I've been talking a lot to Ricky Rahne and coach Wall (Matt Wallerstedt) at K-State. They've been texting me a lot and it seems like they're pretty interested."
Anderson said Iowa is also extremely interested in him. He's not gotten a call from the Hawkeyes yet, but area recruiting coach Eric Johnson has been in communication with him through text messages and e-mails.
He said he's also heard from Kansas and Missouri this spring in the mail, but not as regularly as the other schools he mentioned. Northwestern is another school he's interested in.
Anderson has had a successful spring in track. He's running the 100, 200, 4x100-meter relay and doing the long jump. His best event is the 200, where he's run a personal best of 21.9 seconds. He's around 10.9 officially in the 100, but has been working on getting down to 10.7 seconds.
"I've also been working hard on football stuff," he said. "I'm going to the NIKE Camp in Fort Worth this weekend. I hope to show them I have good hands and good moves to go along with my speed."
