Anderson hearing steadily from two

Houston C.E. King defensive end Everett Anderson hasn't heard from many colleges yet, but he thinks that has more to do with his high school than anything else.

King is undergoing a coaching change and Anderson thinks that's the reason he's only heard from five schools.

That coaching change might be a good thing for the Frogs as TCU is one of the two schools that has kept in contact with Anderson.

"We're in the middle of changing coaches so I think some schools are having trouble getting a hold of us," Anderson said. "I haven't gotten too many calls, but Houston and TCU are the two I've talked to the most."

Anderson did give the impression that it might be a race to the alter between him and TCU or Houston.

"I'll wait as long as I can to sign," Anderson said. "But if one of those two offer I will probably commit."

The defensive end went to a TCU camp last summer and is planning on doing that again this summer. He also appeared at a Houston NIKE combine earlier this month.

Anderson is a Houston native, which is an important factor for him, but he thinks highly of TCU as well. And despite the fact the 6-foot-4, 230-pounder plays defense, TCU's offense might be a tipping point for him.

"U of H is close to home, but I really like TCU's program," Anderson said. "I like Coach Patterson and they use the tight end a lot. I played tight end my sophomore year and I really liked it."

He didn't play as much on offense last year, but expects to play more this year under the new coach.

"I prefer tight end because I have more experience," Anderson said. "But on the defensive end, I'm building my skills and I can do a lot on defense. Plus last year we ran a 4-3 and this year they are saying we will switch to a 3-4 and that will give me something else I can do."

Anderson said he credits his play at center on the basketball team as the reason he can play both sides of the ball in football.
