I was going to write "Who?" but he sure showed me. Looks to be a great kid. I hope he finds the field and I know he will have much success after football. If there ever was a Michigan Man he is probably it.

Tony Anderson sounds like a good kid. Pretty cool that he was able to turn down the athletic scholarship because he was already on an academic scholarship.

And walk on. But it must be ok if the scholarship comes from outside the University.  Still, seems like there's a danger of abuse if, say,  a Nike Foundation scholarship was given to football players going to Oregon, or the like.  Legit National Organizations like this must be exempt though. Huh.

He looked pretty good in the spring game too (totally off my radar before that).  A team guy for sure, as you can tell from his comments. 

Good luck Tony!

holy cow - hopefully he can leverage the Rob Pelinka connection and get into the agent world.  Seems like he'd be able to advocate very well with those impressive communication skills!

Love these stories of hidden gems on the team playing their butts off in practive every day and then killing it in the classroom.

Practice LSATs are far different from the real thing from what I hear.

But with that being said, if he manages to pull in a 165+ he'll have his fair share of excellent law schools to choose from, including UofM.

He seems like a great kid, and I can definitely see him being the next Jerry Maguire!

Eh, my practice LSATs were pretty close to my real LSAT score, the test is easy to replicate and once you learn how to answer the question types, they're all pretty much the same.  I had a couple practice ones that were better than the real thing, but not by more than a few points. 

If he's getting mid to high 160s on his practice tests, he shouldn't do worse than low 160s on the real thing, which is still good.  And if he has the ability to score in the high 160s on practice tests, it means he has the ability to score that high on the real thing.  He might not be Harvard material, but he'll have options as far as law schools.
