In the words of Bob Stoops…BOOM! Katy, Texas running back Rodney Anderson was once committed to the SEC’s Texas A&M Aggies. However, after de-committing in April, Anderson made a huge announcement Sunday morning.
The four-star tailback verbally committed to the Oklahoma Sooners after participating at OU’s football camp over the weekend.
Anderson became the sixth commitment of OU’s 2015 class, and turned down some quality competition for Norman.
Anderson had offers from the likes of Big 12 rivals Texas, Baylor, and Texas Tech, as well as defending SEC Champion Auburn and defending Rose Bowl Champions Michigan State.
At 6’0″, 190 pounds, Anderson de-committed from the Aggies, because to him, it wasn’t the right fit. With the Sooners, however, Anderson will have a great running backs coach in Cale Gundy, who has helped develop some great rushers at Oklahoma, and Anderson hopes to be the next.
Anderson is rated by Rivals as the third-best tailback in his class and the eleventh-best player from the state of Texas. Major props to the coaching staff for stealing this product of Texas.
Thanks to Hudl, here are Anderson’s junior year highlights with Katy High School.
