The younger Anderson is a linebacker and rated as a four-star recruit. He chose Clemson over Florida, Penn State, Michigan State, and Utah. Utah is where his father went.
Anderson said that Clemson was his “dream school.”
“It was always a dream school that I wanted to play for and attend,” Anderson said via On3 Sports. “After my official visit and getting a more in-depth look at the program and talking to the players and being able to see what it was all about from the inside and out. I just felt like it was the place for me.”
Anderson is a member of the 2023 recruiting class. He was an all-state selection for Mill Creek (Ga.).
The elder Jamal Anderson played eight seasons in the NFL (1994-2001), all with the Falcons. He was best known for leading the “Dirty Bird” Falcons to the Super Bowl with 1,846 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns in the 1998 season.
