Anderson was one of the few five-star recruits Kliff Kingsbury convinced to play for him in Lubbock. The Frisco High School product played every game in his three years as a starter until this injury kept him out against OSU.
His freshman year, Anderson earned Freshman All-American honors from both ESPN and USA Today. Last year Anderson made Pro Football Focus’ first-team All-Big 12 as a sophomore and showed real promise to be selected in the upcoming NFL draft.
Senior defensive back Desmond Smith sustained what appeared to be a knee injury early in the first quarter and was seen using crutches on the sideline after heading to the locker room. No announcement has been made about Smith’s injury but he did not play a snap after sustaining the injury.
