A new name is coming out of the East Texas region in one running back that coaches are coming into see on a daily basis. Jacksonville, Texas running back Carmen Boyd-Anderson is a player that will definitely be showing up with several scholarship offers soon.
So far, only one offer has come for Boyd-Anderson from Kansas State. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder who his coach says is a legitimate 4.5-second runner should definitely be expecting more.
"At times, he looks phenomenal and he can break the big play," said Jacksonville coach Randy Copeland. "He blocks, runs, catches, and is a real physical back. But really, Carmen is a great person to."
Anderson is being recruited by Kansas State coach Tim Horton. Several other schools such as Nebraska and Iowa have been down in recent weeks as well.
"Everybody else is coming by to pick up film but no one else has offered," Copeland said. "I think there are a lot of schools out there that like him. It's hard to name them all off, but there have been a bunch."
As for visits, Boyd-Anderson has been somewhat quiet on that front. The star running back has not taken any visits, but looks to start setting up camp visits very soon.
So far, it looks like the race is wide open but heating up fast as offers start to come in.
Boyd-Anderson was a first-team all-district member as a junior.
