One of the fastest rising stars in the west recently is tight end/offensive lineman/defensive lineman Cody Anderson (6-6, 249, 5.0) from Apache Junction, Ariz. Anderson was a standout at the Arizona Wildcat camp this past weekend and went away with an offer.
The Wildcats join UTEP, San Diego State, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado State and Colorado has other schools that have offers on the table for Anderson.
Some schools want Anderson to play tight end, others like him as a defensive end and some schools think that you bulk him up and make into an outstanding offensive tackle.
"I would like to play tight end in college but that is not set in stone," Anderson said. "If the coaches want me to play another position because it will help the team the most, I would."
That statement is music to the ears of college coaches and gives you some insight into the team oriented mindset of Anderson.
"I don't want to make an early decision," Anderson said. "I will probably make a mid-season or wait until after the season to make my decision. I want to take all five of my official visits."
"I want to have some fun out of the recruiting process," Anderson said. "I don't want it all to be work."
"I'm really excited about the Arizona offer," Anderson said. "I've always been an Arizona fan my whole life and Mike Stops is great coach."
"I'm still very open to all the schools that are showing interest," Anderson said.
