2014 QB Kilton Anderson (6’3, 205, 4.58/40) of Naples High School in Florida threw for 1288 yards and 17 touchdowns and rushed for 839 yards and 28 scores. He was the leading scorer in 6A with 270 total points scored.
Anderson is emerging as one of the country’s top dual-threat quarterbacks and college recruiters have taken notice. “UConn, Indiana, Minnesota, Michigan, Miami, North Carolina, NC State, Georgia, LSU, and West Virginia are interested, sending me tons of mail.”
He made the trip to San Antonio, TX to show off his talents and compete against the best prospects in the nation. “I participated in the US Army All-American Combine. It was great, I received a Honorable Mention. There was a lot of great competition there from all over the US, so it’s nice to see how I compared.”
The junior signal-caller told Deep South Recruiting that he thinks his game compares favorably with his peers. “I feel that I can compete with anyone and I’ll put my game up against anybody’s. I’m definitely a dual-threat, can hurt defenses with my arm and legs.”
Anderson didn’t take any unofficial visits during his junior season, instead electing to concentrate on football. He has a busy offseason scheduled for himself and he shared the details of those plans. “I did attend camps at Florida St. and Miami last summer,” he said. “I plan on going back to FSU, I’ll camp at Georgia and Indiana if I can get up there. I’ll play 7-on-7 football for Team 239 or the South Florida Express and I’ll play left field for the baseball team.”
He talked about how baseball helps him on the football field. “It keeps my arm in shape, keeps me sharp. It also helps with my burst, running to first base. I feel it helps with my hand/eye coordination, too.”
Anderson spoke about which factors will be important to him in his decision making process. “I’m looking for the right fit and where I feel comfortable,” he said. “Systems don’t really matter. I don’t favor the spread over pro-style, but it would be nice to use all of my skills on the next level.
“Location isn’t a big deal, I’ll play anywhere. I want to have a chance to play after a season or two, and really, it’s about being comfortable in the program.”
While he claims no verbal offers currently, Anderson is close to having several extended in the near future, and he knows when he’d like to have a verbal pledge in place. “I’d like to be committed before my senior season starts, that would be great.”
