Southlake Carroll quarterback Kaden Anderson commits to Wyoming

Anderson passed for 34 touchdowns in his first season as Carroll’s starting quarterback last season.

It was around this time last summer that Kaden Anderson went from Quinn Ewers’ backup at Southlake Carroll to contending for the starting quarterback gig at one of Texas’ most prestigious football powerhouses.

Now he’s headed to a college that produced one of the NFL’s premier passers.

Anderson, the No. 71 player on The Dallas Morning News’ top 100 recruits list for the class of 2023, announced his commitment to Wyoming on Monday. An unranked recruit, per 247Sports.com, Anderson also held offers from Bowling Green, Houston Baptist and Stephen F. Austin.

A third-string quarterback for Carroll in 2020, Anderson stepped into the starting role last fall after Ewers — the nation’s No. 1 recruit — skipped his senior season and enrolled at Ohio State. In year one as a starter, Anderson passed for 3,036 yards, 34 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. He helped lead Carroll (14-1) to the 6A Div. I state semifinals, where it lost to Duncanville.

The 6-5 Anderson is the eighth player in the class of 2023 to commit to Wyoming, which went 7-6 last season and beat Kent State in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Buffalo Bills Pro Bowl quarterback Josh Allen played three seasons at Wyoming before he was selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
