Anderson Leaning To Clemson?
Garrett Anderson is one of two offensive lineman Clemson offered in South Carolina this year. Anderson was almost considered a lock to go to South Carolina, as he grew up a South Carolina fan along with his parents, but an unofficial visit to Clemson has changed his tune.
"The visit to Clemson went really well. Myself nor my parents were real sure what to think. I grew up pulling for South Carolina, but Clemson is my leader after the visit. My final decision will be between Clemson and Virginia Tech. Coach (Brad) Scott is a really good person and coach. If I went to Clemson, he would be my position coach, and he is the type guy I would like to play for. Coach Scott and Coach Burns have treated me well."
Clemson was not looking to take an interior lineman in this class. Anderson's potential is simply too much to pass up. He is very athletic and could play tackle, but he will most likely wind up at guard in college.
Anderson says a decision will come sooner than later.
"I am close to a decision. I have no interest in dragging this process out to where it becomes a distraction. I would like to have my decision made by the start of my senior season."
We will keep track of Anderson closely as the Clemson looks to steal one away from arch rival South Carolina.
