Michigan was the first program to send a scholarship to the Atlanta, Georgia native, which happened back in June. He and his family took a trip to Ann Arbor to see the Michigan football team take on Rutgers, and explained to The Michigan Insider’s Brice Marich ($) how great a visit it was.
“It was fantastic,” Anderson said. “Coach Juwan, coach Martelli and the whole staff were amazing. It was great to see all of them in a family type environment with tailgating and everything. I got to talk to them a lot and was able to sit front row at the football game. Love campus and the whole atmosphere at Michigan.”
He only stands 5-foot-8 and weighs 125 pounds, per his 247Sports profile, but keep in mind he is just a sophomore in high school, so there is a lot of room to grow. Marich also wrote that, “averaged 30 minutes as a freshman and notched 15 points per game along with seeing those point total increase on the AAU circuit,” so those numbers definitely back up why Howard and the Wolverines wanted to offer him so quickly.
