There is a big time running back emerging in the small Texas town of Jacksonville. The scholarship offers are starting to come in quickly for the all-district back Carmen Boyd-Anderson and a few favorites are starting to come out of the list.
The first one came in from Kansas State but another Big 12 team is now on the list with many more closing in fast. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder found out about his first verbal offer from the Wildcats right after his junior season.
"That was real early actually," Boyd-Anderson said. "I found out they verbally offered me right after my season was offer. Then Missouri offered me recently and that's about it right now. Those are the only written scholarships I have in my hand."
As for others, the talented young man says there could be others coming very soon.
"I've been talking with Kansas and Nebraska quite a bit," Anderson said. "I think Nebraska could be next to offer. They seem really interested."
The Huskers are the early favorite for the Lone Star prospect besides an in-state team.
"Well I really, really like Texas, but I know a lot of kids are going there already and have committed," he said. "I'm real interested in Nebraska right now. I just like the style of football they play and their running game."
Boyd-Anderson recently took in the NIKE Combine in Houston, Texas this past weekend and did pretty well overall.
"We did well down there," he said. "I had a good shuttle time and a pretty nice vertical. I'm probably going to the Texas A&M camp coming up and the Oklahoma State camp in Kilgore coming up."
