Did you all enjoy the scrimmage last night? We only have 12 days until kickoff. Today we profile #6, Chaz Anderson. 6 x 2 = 12... Still with me?
#6, Chaz Anderson, RS Freshman, Cornerback
Hometown: Los Angeles, Calidornia
High School: Loyola
How'd he get to The Blue™?
Anderson was a 3-star recruit out of Loyola High in Los Angeles. He was given a .8714 Composite Rating by 247 Sports, ranking him as the 39th best corner in the country. For some reference, fellow 2012 cornerback commit Donte Deayon had a .8600 rating good for 45th best corner in the country. Luckily for Bronco Nation, Mr. Anderson has some family ties to Boise State which made his recruitment period short and sweet. You see, Bryan Douglas is Anderson's cousin.
At Loyola High, Anderson was a second team all-state selection as a senior and a first team All-Serra League performer. He registered 22 tackles and a PBU in 2011. Anderson was adept on the offensive side of the ball as well, racking up 356 yards receiving on just 14 receptions (a 25 YPC average). As a junior, Anderson made 11 grabs for 123 yards and logged 2 INTs on defense. Anderson chose the Broncos over an offer from San Diego State.

Boise State Offensive Coordinator Robert Prince
Two-year letter-winner in football and track and field. First team All-Serra League and second team all-state performer as a senior.
In the middle of all the 'Who's Going to Play?' mumbo jumbo, it seems like Anderson might be the forgotten man. The conversation on who is going to replace Jamar Taylor and Jerrell Gavins usually goes one of two ways: Can one of the junior college transfers step in, or can one of the true freshman play a major part of the rotation? In regards to both of those, this redshirt freshman will have something to say before all is said and done. From all accounts his Cuz, Bryan Douglas, and his recruiting class brother, Donte Deayon, will get the starting nod on game day. Anderson is listed as the backup to Douglas on the 2-Deep and expect him to play a vital role at corner/true nickel throughout the year, especially against all of the 3-,4-, and 5-WR sets the Broncos will face.
Completely made up fact
Anderson is very susceptible to Dr. Sheldon Cooper's classic practical jokes...
