Amad Anderson is a 5-11, 170 pound wide receiver coming from Staten Island, NY. Anderson is currently the No. 4 recruit in New York.

Although Anderson is a wide receiver, he is good on both sides of the ball — offense and defense. His athleticism is impeccable. He can out-run, pass or hurdle the opponent on the field.

Anderson told Armchair, “I found my passion when I was five. Everything I wanted to do had something with football. A lot of things influence me — from family members, to people who don’t have anything, to role models.”

Anderson had offers from schools including Wisconsin, Rutgers, Maryland and N.C. State, but Purdue stood out to him.

“I picked Purdue because it was a great school and they recruited me from the start of it all and I can see myself in a Purdue uniform,” he said.

Over the weekend, Purdue won their first Old Oaken Bucket in years and they are headed to a bowl game after defeating the Indiana Hoosiers in a rivalry match-up. Anderson is joining the team at the right time.

“It means a lot, that’s a start and great accomplishment. I just wanna build and build the program so it can be on top of it all,” said Anderson. “Joining the team I’m going to compete and bring the juice each and every day and make plays to win games.”

Coach Brohm has been recruiting some great athletes including Anderson. Due to his versatility, Anderson has a message for Brohm and his coaching staff. 

“I’m just a competitor and I will play anywhere you need me to.”

Anderson will continue to work hard during his high school season while he awaits his arrival at Purdue. “I’m just looking forward to becoming the best athlete and making my family and city proud,” he said.

Hi, I’m Sydney S. Tucker, a mass communications major at Purdue University. As a former athlete, I developed my passion for sports. I’ve always been the girl who participated in every sport in gym class. Becoming more competitive as I got to high school, I began to fall in love with sports. As a girl, my athletic abilities were always challenged. Until, I threw a football halfway down the field or scored a half-court shot. I know, cool right lol? In addition, I gained interests in all aspects of the media field. It was always like a tug-of-war trying to balance being an athlete and being involved on the side lines as a reporter in high school. Once I got to college, I decided to combine the two and that’s how I became an aspiring sports broadcaster.
