Plano West RB Auston Anderson feels 'nostalgic' as he signs with Northwestern
Plano West's signing-day ceremony featured shirts and hats of different colors, but the dominant color was purple. That was because of the family and friends of running back Auston Anderson, who signed with Northwestern.
"They're all here," said Anderson, who was wearing a purple-striped tie. "Grandparents, uncles, cousins, little brothers and sisters - the whole spread."
Anderson (5-9, 180), who rushed for nearly 2,500 yards in the last two years at Plano West, orally committed to Northwestern before his senior season and never wavered. But it felt special to make it official Wednesday.
"It's just a great feeling," he said. "Growing up in Texas, the big thing is to go play college football. Realizing your dream makes you feel nostalgic. It makes you feel old."
