UPDATE (6:21 AM)-
**Look for Rice OT grad transfer Calvin Anderson to decide on his five official visits very soon but things might be getting more difficult for Pitt and other teams looking to land him. In an interview with 247 Sports, Anderson says that he believes Notre Dame might be coming to see him and could extend an offer. This will no doubt effect his decision making process.
