A decision is coming soon for arguably the biggest graduate transfer in college football. Calvin Anderson, an offensive tackle transferring from Rice, will be announcing his commitment shortly.

Anderson, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound offensive tackle, visited Oklahoma this past weekend. He had said previously that he would be making his decision after the visit with the Sooners.

The former Owls' standout has named his final four schools. He will be deciding between: Oklahoma, Michigan, Texas and Auburn.

The visit with the Sooners appeared to go well. Anderson thanked the program and the fan base on Twitter.

Michigan and Texas are seen by most recruiting experts as the favorites to land the mammoth offensive tackle. The offensive tackle is an Austin, Texas native.

Anderson was two-star recruit coming out of high school. He's now seen as an NFL prospect and an impact starter for whichever program lands him.

He'll be graduating in May and will be eligible to play right away in 2018. He wants to end up in the NFL.

“My biggest thing – I’ve had a great career at Rice and will have an excellent degree in mathematical economics – but now I’m moving toward my dream of going to the NFL. I’m in a unique spot where I have an opportunity to chase that dream. So I’m 100-percent committed to it. This next year, I want to go to a place that’s going to get better and give me really good competition. I want to develop as a player to be ready for the 2019 NFL draft,” he told 247Sports.

“All the schools I’m talking to are in big conferences with good opportunities for exposure. The Big 12, the SEC is huge – Auburn, the Big Ten, all these conferences are big.”

Stay tuned for a decision...
