Missouri continued a run on junior college defensive line commitments Sunday with the addition of New Mexico Military Institute end Nate Anderson.
Anderson’s junior college coach, Joe Forchtner, first tweeted news of the commitment.
Anderson, a Toronto native, was listed as a 6-foot-3, 255-pound sophomore defensive end on the Broncos’ roster last season.
Never miss a local story.
He totaled 31 tackles, including 13 1/2 for a loss with five sacks, in nine games as a sophomore this season.
Anderson, who will have two years of remaining eligibility, also was credited with 32 tackles, including 5 1/2 for a loss with 1 1/2 sacks, in 11 games as a freshman.
Anderson also forced and recovered a fumble during both seasons for the New Mexico Military Institute, where Super Bowl VI MVP Roger Staubach started his college career in 1960 before transferring to the Naval Academy and becoming a Heisman Trophy winner.
On film, Anderson appears to be an explosive athlete and hard-hitting tackler, who lined up on the left and right sides of the defensive line.
He is the second defensive line commitment of the weekend, joining tackle Rashad Brandon from ASA College in Brooklyn, N.Y., who gave his verbal commitment Saturday.
Anderson also had scholarship offers from Idaho, San Diego State, South Florida and Central Florida, according to Rivals.
The Tigers now have 16 known commitments, including three on the defensive line with Anderson and Brandon as well as Hammond (La.) end Chris Turner.
