"I loved it," he said. "I think what I liked most was the connection between the players and coaches," he added.
"I got there early on Saturday morning," he stated. "Lee (Hightower) was my host and he showed me around campus and everything. It really felt like the whole team was my host. I got a chance to hangout with just about everyone. It was a lot of fun."
"I had a meeting with Coach Yates and Coach Petersen," said Anderson. "Coach Yates was real cool. He told me what was going to happen, but not just the perks of Boise. He told me it wasn't going to be easy and would require a lot of hard work. I appreciate that. With Coach Petersen, he just broke-down Boise State as a whole and why I was such a good fit. I'd say I bonded with both."
The talented CB says his mom was impressed with Head Coach Chris Petersen and the fact that he stresses the academic side of things.
"My mom was ecstatic when we got home," he said. "She said that's somewhere you need to be and a place that will take care of you. She likes how he's all about academics and everything. She's proud and comfortable with leaving me in Idaho."
The future Bronco says the City of Boise as a whole surpassed his expectations. "I thought it would be the stereotypical potatoes everywhere when I imagined Boise," said Anderson. "It was filled with respectful people. I think it's a place that you'll never be bored and one that will keep you out of trouble."
And the game?
"I thought the DBs were awesome," he said. "The defense played with a lot of enthusiasm in the first half, but were a little sloppy in the second half. Overall, I thought it was a good performance."
Anderson (6'0 175) and his teammates are 4-1 through five games. Loyola has a proud football tradition, but has struggled mightily over the past few years. Still, it appears the program is on its way back.
"We still have work to do, but I feel we're setting a tone for the underclassmen. I think we'll know in the next few weeks if we're really back or not," he said. "Personally, I'd give myself a B- or C+ right now. There's always room for improvement."
Through five games - Anderson has 11 receptions for 160 yards at WR. At CB, he has 10 tackles and 2 deflections.
