Camarillo (Calif.) punter Bryan Anger (6-4, 190) will strictly punt in college.
But that isn’t going to keep him from having a little fun during his senior season.
With one of the top quarterbacks in the state playing for the Scorpions, USC commit Samson Szakacsy, Anger is going to play receiver this fall.
“Yeah, I’m going to get some action at receiver at both spots for us,” said Anger. “It will be pretty fun and a great opportunity.”
But the reason Anger is becoming a hot commodity is because of what he does when the offense can’t get going.
Anger has offers from six schools, with Northwestern being the most recent to join the ranks. Cal, LSU, Oregon, Washington and Boise State have all offered him.
“Notre Dame and USC have both been showing more interest lately,” said Anger. “At this point, I’m pretty wide open.”
Anger has yet to set up an official trip, but did take an unofficial tour this summer to Cal, Stanford, Oregon, Washington and USC.
“Cal, they really have everything,” said Anger. “A good location, a nice city and a good team.”
LSU is a good bet to end up with one of his official visits, but after that, it’s anyone’s guess where he’ll visit. At the same time, he’s not sure if he’ll take all five of his allotted trips.
Whether he punts as a true freshman or not is also still up in the air.
“A couple of schools have said I’d come in as a possible redshirt, some said I would start to play right away,” said Anger.
The recent move to being wide open is a new thing for Anger, since early on he felt like making a decision.
“I did want to make my decision early, but I have no pressure to make one,” said Anger. “I don’t really have a timetable and any of my choices right now are good ones.”
Anger participated in the popular Chris Sailer Kicking competitions this year, winning the January combine and finishing sixth at the May competition. He was named to the Elite Top 12 at the camp.
Camarillo gets started this weekend with a contest against Newbury Park.
