A yearly tradition here at TTB is to look at 2018 prospects with famous fathers. If you’re interested in past editions, you can click on this (LINK). If you’re only interested in the here and now, below you will find 14 prospects in the 2018 class with famous dads.

Mayan Ahanotu – DE – Tampa (FL) Berkely Prep: Ahonatu is a 6’3″, 246 lb. prospect who signed with Minnesota in December; he also had offers from Arizona, Cal, Maryland, Oklahoma, UCF, and USF, among others. He’s a 3-star, the #51 strongside end, and #1017 overall. Mayan is the son of Chidi Ahonatu, who played at Cal and was a 6th round pick (#145 overall) of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in in 1993. He posted 436 tackles and 46.5 sacks from 1993-2004 with the Bucs, Rams, Bills, 49ers, and Dolphins.

Drake Anderson – RB – Chandler (AZ) Chandler: Anderson is a 5’11”, 180 lb. prospect who’s following in his dad’s footsteps to Northwestern; he also had offers from Illinois, Nevada, and New Mexico State. He’s a 3-star, the #91 running back, and #1446 overall. He was wildly productive as a senior, running 218 times for 2,009 yards and 32 touchdowns, along with 23 catches for 310 yards and 5 more scores. His father, Damien Anderson, was First Team All-Big Ten and a consensus All-American in 2000, when he had an uncharacteristically outstanding year. Prior to that season, he averaged 3.3 and 3.7 yards per carry, and in 2001 he averaged 4.4; but in 2000, he averaged 6.6 yards per rush (311 carries for 2,063 yards and 23 touchdowns). He went undrafted in 2002 and ran 45 times for 142 yards (3.2 yards/carry) over four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals.

Hit the jump for several more well known father-son (and one grandfather-son) combos.
