RB Anderson still solid with B1G pledge

It’s been a relatively quiet summer for Northwestern running back commit Auston Anderson (Plano, Texas/Plano West). After committing to the Wildcats on May 9, Anderson’s been in the weight room and on the field working toward his senior season and, ultimately, life in the Big Ten.

Since his commitment, however, there have been many who still scratch their heads. Anderson, a high three-star running back, had offers from Nebraska, Stanford, Arkansas, Washington and several other heavyweights in college football. Locally, Anderson had a chance to play close to home with Big 12 offers from Texas, Texas Tech, Baylor and TCU.

On Sunday, Anderson addressed those with questions and reconfirmed his commitment to Northwestern. He is one of three running backs to commit to the Wildcats in the 2014 class, but he said he doesn’t plan on finding a new home.
