The rise of running back Mario Anderson Jr. from a lightly recruited prospect from Stratford High School to the SEC is one of the feel-good stories of the recruiting season for USC. Anderson spent three seasons at Newberry capping his time there with an All-American season.

Monday night, Anderson joined us on SportsTalk to talk about his journey from overlooked in high school, to D2 All-American and now to the SEC.
