The Final Recruiting Piece: Rice Grad Transfer OT Calvin Anderson

NCAA Football: Rice at Texas-San Antonio John Gutierrez-USA TODAY Sports

The Rice graduate and former Westlake product didn’t enjoy much of a recruiting process as a high school senior, but he’s making up for it as a one year graduate transfer who will choose between Texas, Michigan, Auburn and Oklahoma to play out his final college eligibility.

Anderson started 36 games at Rice (the Owls were a 1-11 team in 2017) and he wants to end his college career on a big stage where he can start, refine his skills and test his abilities to see if he has a shot at the next level. If that doesn’t work out, a Rice degree should serve him pretty well.

Anderson has wisely taken full advantage of the big time recruiting process he never got to fully experience as a 18 year old, but the smart money still favors Texas, where Anderson could be an immediate starter at one of the offensive tackle spots and provide immediate stability for a crew that’s in dire need of senior leadership and experience. OL coach Herb Hand and Tom Herman still have to seal the deal against several major programs that are pushing hard for the grad transfer.

Anderson will continue to enjoy his courting, but expect a decision by March 25 - his birthday.
