Anderson came to Northwestern as a member of the 2018 recruiting class. He spent three years with the program before deciding to move on and will keep his status as a redshirt sophomore at Arizona thanks to the blanket waiver provided by the NCAA for all fall student-athletes for the 2020 season.
In 2020, Anderson rushed for 256 yards and 2 touchdowns on 62 carries, as the Wildcats finished the season with a 7-2 record. He also had 28 yards on 4 receptions.
Anderson emerged as a strong ball carrier in Evanston in the 2019 season, when he toted the rock 154 times, picking up 634 yards and 3 touchdowns in 12 games. For his career, Anderson has appeared in 21 contests and totaled 926 rushing yards, 56 receiving yards and scored 5 touchdowns on the ground.
