      Yes. I think that was expected by most people for a while, so it’s not a big surprise.

    Thunder, should Anderson commit & transfer, how do you see him fitting in? Left Tackle? If so, how would you compare him to Cole?

      I think he would be our starting left tackle next year, and I don’t think it would move the needle up or down from Cole. I think they’re comparable players. Neither one is an elite left tackle, but both can get the job done. Anderson’s going to need to change some of his technique if he comes to Michigan, too. He’s doing some stuff that he won’t be able to get away with in the Big Ten, but that’s a good reason to transfer away from Rice, so you can step up the coaching, competition, etc.
