Wake Forest Football Player Profile: Center Ryan Anderson

Learn more about the redshirt freshman.

Dean Shore

We continue our Wake Forest football player series by looking at center, Ryan Anderson. Anderson is a redshirt freshman, who attended high school at Wakefield High School in Raleigh, North Carolina, before playing a post graduate year at The Hun School in New Jersey. He enrolled early in January of 2014, and redshirted last season. What can we expect from the 6'6" 290 pound Raleigh native?

Despite not playing last season, Anderson is currently projected to be the team's starting center this season. This is encouraging for Wake Forest fans, in the sense that he is projected to start over A'Lique Terry, who started seven games last season for the Demon Deacons as a true freshman. Anderson was only a 2-star recruit out of high school, but like Phil Haynes who was also not highly regarded coming out of high school, he is making the most of his opportunity and is currently slated to start.

Wake's three projected starters at left tackle, center, and right tackle have a combined zero career starts. If that trio stays together for several years, then Wake will have one of the most experienced offensive lines in the country in several years.

What do you all expect to see from Ryan this season?
