He has found his game and the rest of college football should be very afraid.

William Anderson, Alabama’s true freshman at outside linebacker, has emerged in the last six games as the pass rusher the Crimson Tide has lacked since Tim Williams. After recording his first sack versus Auburn in the Iron Bowl, he returned with a breakout performance against Louisiana State University over the weekend at Tiger Stadium. Anderson not only affected the passing game of T.J. Finley and Max Johnson, but he also won the edge in stopping the Tigers twice on fourth down.

The native Georgian shared a team-high eight total tackles with DeMarcco Hellams. Anderson led the team in sacks (two) and tackles for loss (two) in a 55-17 victory for Alabama. He picked up his first-ever outing with multiple sacks and set the pace for Nick Saban’s defense to have five sacks, seven tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery (Christopher Allen).
