Adam Anderson picked up an award on Monday from the TD Club of Atlanta. The meeting took place at 103 West in Atlanta and Anderson looked the part.
He was pretty dapper in a scarlet red jacket and matching bow tie, but he must have also have been in a giving mood. That’s because Anderson shared some very interesting news.
The nation’s No. 2 OLB prospect told the assembled crowd he planned to make his third and final college commitment on Thursday.
It would be impeccable timing for Anderson to choose that moment. The 4-star prospect wears No. 19 when he lines up from his defensive end spot on the state’s best defensive line.
It will also be his birthday.
The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder ranks as the nation’s No. 43 overall prospect for 2018 by the 247Sports Composite. The Rome High senior plays on the GHSA defending state champion team in Class AAAAA. His Wolves are also rated No. 1 with a 7-0 record.
The U.S. Army All-American has moved up his timetable from his previous thought of making that choice after his senior season. He had told DawgNation back in August that he felt he might do it after his senior year so his focus would remain on his high school team.
It appears now that Anderson feels much better about making that decision at this time. The rangy OLB prospect visited UGA back on Sept. 23 for the blowout win against Mississippi State.
Anderson then took a trip to see Alabama take on Ole Miss on Sept. 30. That gave him a good last look on an unofficial visit to both programs.
He hopes to make what will be his third and final commitment. Anderson committed to UGA on Aug. 5 of last year. He then flipped his commitment from UGA to LSU on G-Day on Aug. 22 of this year.
Anderson then set the stage for this week’s news by de-committing from LSU back on July 6.
