He becomes the 17th commitment on Western Michigan’s stout 2017 recruiting class. P.J Fleck’s 2017 recruiting class remains the best in the Mid-American Conference, and is ranked 35th nationally. Fleck’s 2017 recruiting class is currently ranked higher than Michigan State, Florida, Stanford, Ole Miss, and others, by 247 Sports.
According to 247 Sports, Anderson held a total of ten offers with interest from many more schools. Some of the programs that offered Anderson include Illinois, Tulsa, Ohio, and Georgia State. Anderson also received interest from Rutgers, Indiana, West Virginia, and Oregon State. In a recent interview with the Hustle Belt, Anderson explained why he chose Western Michigan.
“Well first and foremost I have the support of family. Coach Fleck and staff are elite in everything they do. I want to be apart of staff and not only will they elevate my play on the field but will elevate me as a man. That is what brought me to the decision to choose WMU. The facilities are elite and the football program is ascending, how couldn’t a player want to be apart.”
KJ Anderson currently attends Buford High School located in Buford, Georgia and stands at 6-foot-0, weighing 170 pounds.
