Anderson was an offensive and defensive leader for West Lauderdale while leading his team to a state championship. He has shown arm strength up to 92 mph, but the consensus has him as a catcher. He's a catch-and-throw backstop with an arm that is at least plus. He is big for the position at 6-foot-4, 180 pounds, but he has the athleticism, blocking and receiving skills to have a shot at staying behind the plate. Evaluations of his bat are less sanguine. He has adequate bat speed but didn't consistently square up velocity last summer. Added strength could give him power potential down the road and he has shown flashes of raw power, but evaluators expect his power production to be below-average. The Southern Miss commit is a below-average runner.
