Shrinking roster: Vanderbilt to lose another player to transfer portal
Vanderbilt is dealing with a shrinking roster ahead of its game with Texas A&M. On Tuesday afternoon, another player entered the transfer portal with an announcement on Twitter.
Commodores LB Colin Anderson wrote that he is entering transfer portal. He was on the roster for the Texas A&M game this week, but not the depth chart.
“I am thankful for all the academic and athletic opportunities that have been afforded to me here at Vanderbilt University,” Anderson wrote on Twitter. “Coach Mason and his staff have been both great mentors and role models for me as I’ve grown since my first time stepping on campus. While I’m thankful for my past, I am also looking forward to the future as I graduate this December. With that being said, after careful consideration, I’m announcing my plans to enter the transfer portal.”
Anderson suffered a preseason injury in 2019 and did not see any action. As a redshirt freshman in 2018, he appeared in eight games at inside linebacker, but also suffered a foot injury. His first start came against Middle Tennessee that season where he had three tackles.
He also didn’t play in 2017.
The 6-foot-2 and 224-pounder is from Florence, Alabama (Brooks). He was a senior captain and 3-star prospect coming out of high school.
He is believed to be the 11th Vanderbilt player to opt out or transfer this year.
