The start to football season has been up and down for the Aggies.

But they did get good news late Tuesday, as Katy junior running back Rodney Anderson verbally committed to Texas A&M.

Anderson (6-0, 200) becomes the Aggies second verbal commit for the Class of 2015, joining Clear Lake tight end Jordan Davis, who committed in June and switched from Florida State.

Set to take his turn as Katy’s featured back, Anderson was still an integral part of the Tigers offense in his first two seasons. He took over as a freshman when teammate Adam Taylor was lost for the season with a knee injury, running for 1,167 yards and 14 touchdowns.

While Taylor rewrote the program record book last season, Anderson was still a valuable weapon. He had nearly 1,400 yards of offense rushing and receiving to go with 23 touchdowns. He also worked in on special teams as a returner.

Verbal commitments are non-binding – the first day a recruit from the Class of 2015 can sign a letter of intent is Feb. 4, 2015.
