All American LB Alex Anzalone will be at Penn State on Saturday for his 3rd visit in the last two months. In addition to those visits, he just took a west-coast trip that included stops at Stanford, UCLA and USC. His trip to USC is the one I find most interesting. Lane Kiffin not only wants Alex Anzalone to be a Trojan, he wants it to happen SOON.
Kiffin has asked Alex, a high school junior, to graduate early and enroll at USC this summer.
“I think it shows how hard I’ve worked in the classroom and how much I’ve been preparing for this.” Alex added “I met with my counselor at school and it is possible to do.”
Alex has told me that he does not have a list of top schools and is also unsure about where he will be on April 21st, although he knows he will be at a Spring game. “Penn State, Notre Dame and Ohio State are all possibilities.”
I asked if the USC situation is also a possibility and Alex replied
“Who wouldn’t consider it? It’s an opportunity that not everyone gets. There’s a chance of getting my masters degree by the time I graduate which is awesome. It’s an option.”
