Pitt FB Recruiting

SEC Calling, But 4-Star CB Khalil Anderson ‘200% Committed to Pitt’

SEC Calling, But 4-Star CB Khalil Anderson ‘200% Committed to Pitt’

The Pitt coaching staff was elated in early June to receive a commitment from Georgia cornerback Khalil Anderson.

While they were excited to add a talent like Anderson to their Class of 2021, they also knew that National Signing Day was still seven months away and their recruitment of him would have to continue.

Since his commitment to Pitt, Anderson has been elevated to a four-star recruit by 247 Sports and is continuing to get pursued by major programs. Lane Kiffin and Ole Miss offered, which was followed by Arkansas and a third SEC team as South Carolina recently offered this rising prospect.

This will likely not be the last offer that Anderson receives so Pittsburgh Sports Now contacted him and asked about all this attention and has anything changed about his commitment level to Pitt?

”Growing up as a kid, it’s always been my dream to get this kind of attention and to be a four-star recruit,” said Anderson. “Being from the South, growing up, I always thought that getting recruited from a SEC would be great but as I got older, I realized that there’s more to college than just playing football.

”When I went to Pitt’s campus and met their coaching staff and their academic support team, it was game over from that moment on. I know that Pittsburgh was my home and I’m 200% committed to Pitt. I really can’t wait to get there and I’m actually thinking about early enrolling.”

Aside from the academics and football at Pitt, Anderson appreciates and values the time that Archie Collins have put in recruiting him.

”It’s crazy that before the coronavirus, I didn’t have any Power 5 offers and didn’t have much recognition,” said Anderson. “Coach Archie (Collins) and Pitt have been talking to me actually since last year and that’s another reason why Pitt is it for me. They were the first school to offer me real love.”

Anderson admits that he’s flattered to still be receiving Power 5 offers and knows that teams will continue to try and flip him but has a simple message for them.

”Coaches are always asking me, ‘Khalil how committed are you to Pittsburgh‘ and I always tell them ‘Coach, I’m 200% committed to Pittsburgh and that’s the home for me but I’d you want to offer, I appreciate it and am humbled by it’” said Anderson. “While I appreciate the offer, I’d consider it to be very disloyal to have any further conversations with you because I’m committed to Pittsburgh.”

Anderson told PSN that since committing, he’s heard multiple times per week from Archie Collins, Randy Bates, Cory Sanders and Pat Narduzzi.

I’m not saying its reliable. I don’t know claim to know anything about that. Im just curious as to why PSN says he is rated as a 4*? I have checked 247 several times a week since PSN reported he was upgraded and it hasn’t happened.

Good to read that the academic support offered was one of the clinchers first him. It sounds like he has his head on straight by this and some of the other quotes.
