Anderson to transfer to Florida International

PEARLAND — Former Pearland quarterback Trey Anderson will graduate from the University of Pittsburgh this spring and then will transfer to Florida International University for his final year to play at the collegiate level.

Anderson has been a member of the Pitt Panthers since 2011, but saw only limited action. He was behind Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage on the depth chart when Savage was leading the offense for Pitt.

Considered one of the top quarterbacks to ever put on an Oiler uniform, Anderson still holds several records at PHS.

Anderson led the Oilers to their greatest season in school history with a perfect 16-0 record that included the 2010 Class 5A Division I state championship. Among the current records that Anderson still holds is 2,898 yards passing and 24 touchdowns, both single-season Pearland school records. He finished his career as the school's all-time leader in passing yards (4,654), completions (306) and touchdown passes (41) while he threw only three interceptions in 16 games his senior year, and only one of those picks led to points for the opponent. He also rushed for eight touchdowns on the season.

Anderson will be immediately eligible at FIU since he graduated with his degree avoiding having to sit out a year.
