I`m a Mac Jones fan of the highest order, but BY may be really too tough to keep off the field next year.
I am also a Mac Jones fan and think he is capable of being a championship level QB. If Bryce Young is good enough to push Jones and possibly even overtake him, he will truly be a freshman phenom. We will see how things start to play out in spring ball. This may be another of those years where the spring game draws about 100,000 folks to T-town to get an early look at how the team is looking for 2020. Will Anderson certainly seems like a guy to watch.

If Young beats out Mac that would to me mean he's probably better than Tua was as a freshman? Which would be something.

After dominating at the Army AA game Will picked up his 5th star and moved up to #22 overall in the Rivals rankings. BY moved up to #2 overall is now the #1 rated QB.

That gives us a total of five 5* if you count all the services. Here is Rivals updated top 100.

Will picked up his 5th star on 247Sports also and is now the #5 overall player. The week in San Antonio was huge for Will.

We have had some great moms, but, we may have to start a ‘***** Will Anderson’s mom’ thread. She is super excited for Will, and quite delightful on twitter. If you reply to her tweet, she will answer . #greatmom #BamaMom

I’m reading on other fan boards that will got his 5th star due to bama bump. I guess th 22 sacks his senior year and being unblockable at AA practice had nothing to do with it. My only question is, what took them so long to reward him for a great senior year!

I don’t really care what other fan bases say or what these so called recruiting gurus say, what stood out to me was what the East coaches were saying about him at the AA. They were raving about his work ethic and his want to learn. That is what separates the top athletes in any sport.

UGA just jelly their coach didn't recruit his own state. He called Will on ESD to which Will pushed ignore. Kirby seemingly only goes for the rankings and doesnt do his own leg work.

Don’t know what I did wrong, and these may already be posted but Will Anderson may become my favorite in this class.
