ESPN 300 RB reopens recruitment

By Sam Khan Jr.

Texas A&M's highly ranked recruiting class took a hit on Wednesday as one longtime recruit decided to evaluate new options.

ESPN 300 running back Rodney Anderson said on Wednesday evening that he is reopening his recruitment to look at some new schools.

"I have opened up the recruiting process again," Anderson confirmed via text message.

Anderson, No. 263 in the ESPN 300 and the 23rd-ranked running back, has been committed to the Aggies since Aug. 6. The versatile back from Texas high school power Katy High School said he's looking for the right fit.

"I'm just looking for an offense that fits my running style," Anderson said.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Anderson said his current summer plans include trips to Alabama and Oklahoma. He has had interest in both schools since early in his recruitment, even before he was committed to Texas A&M.

His decommitment leaves the Aggies with one running back in the 2015 recruiting class, ESPN 300 prospect Jay Bradford. Texas A&M currently has the No. 2 class in the ESPN Class Rankings. Anderson's defection leaves the Aggies with eight commitments, seven of which are ESPN 300 prospects.
