Here we go. With only 6 days left to go, we only have 6 more players to profile. And guess who is up next?—Chaz Anderson

#6, Chaz Anderson, RS Junior, WR

Stats

Height: 5' 10"

Weight: 186 lbs

High School: Loyola HS, Los Angeles, CA

How'd he get to the Blue™?

Recruited as a defensive back, Anderson was a second team all-state selection as a senior and a first team All-Serra League performer—his final season saw him register 22 tackles and a PBU in 2011. Anderson shone on offense at Loyola 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. As it seems is the case more and more lately, Anderson chose the Broncos over an offer from San Diego State.

Career Highlights

Flipped from the defense to the offense last season. Had 21 catches for 456 yards and two touchdowns. Appeared in nine games for Broncos in 2013 as a backup defender and special teamer. Two-year letter-winner in football and track and field. First team all-league and second team all-state performer as a senior.

2015 Prospectus

Mr. Anderson kind of made a name for himself last year as being a "deep threat." Which, at 21 yards a catch, is kind of an earned thing. With new command of the playbook, Anderson looks to be a more integral facet of the passing game. The only problem? Other teams know that too. His breakout season last year helped precipitate his numbers, and allowed him to flourish. This year, now that teams know to lookout for him, will be the time to prove that it was no fluke. For the sake of the hearts, and minds, of Bronco followers hopefully the long Hail Mary passes will not be such a vital part of the game, as fun as they are. Now that he has found his niche, Anderson will have the potential to be a star receiver, not just on the Broncos, but in the MWC.

Is he on Twitter?

Completely Made Up Fact

Mr. Anderson once took down the Matrix. This, in turn, led to the creation of the College Football Playoff.
