Rice graduate transfer Calvin Anderson to take Oklahoma visit

Coveted graduate-transfer prospect Calvin Anderson announced via Twitter he will take an official visit to Oklahoma this weekend.

The former Rice tackle is down to Auburn, Michigan, Oklahoma and Texas, and he says his visit to Norman, Okla., will be his last before he makes a decision on where he’ll play in 2018.

If he chooses the Sooners, Anderson could potentially fill the void left by former Sooners tackle Orlando Brown on the left side of Oklahoma’s offensive line. The potential move would also allow Bobby Evans to stay on the right side as the team breaks in a new starting quarterback next season.

The 6-foot-5, 300-pound lineman would be a huge get for coach Lincoln Riley and offensive coordinator Bill Bedenbaugh. The Sooners did sign elite tackle prospect Brey Walker, however, to their 2018 recruiting class and homegrown lineman could compete for early playing time.

Anderson announced his decision to leave Rice on Jan. 6. He was an honorable mention C-USA All-Conference selection in 2016 and 2017 and is originally from Austin, Texas, where he played at Westlake High School.
