Three-star running back Drake Anderson signs with Northwestern

His last name should sound familiar.

Here it is: Drake Anderson, the son of former NU running back Damien Anderson, has signed a letter of intent to play at Northwestern.

Anderson committed to Northwestern late in the process, but that's in large part because his recruitment came late after missing his entire sophomore and junior seasons with hip injuries.

As a result, his only other Power 5 offer was Illinois.

Anderson had a huge senior season, posting over 2,000 yards rushing and 37 touchdowns. Along with Isaiah Bowser, Pat Fitzgerald has two dynamic running backs in this class.
