2001 Media Guide: Tim Anderson emerged from spring ball as the leading candidate to replace Ryan Pickett as one of the two starting defensive tackles … will have to hold off David Thompson in the fall, but both players should see extensive playing time … big, strong, physical player who gives great effort and has a terrific attitude … has understudied Pickett and Mike Collins the past two years and now appears ready to emerge from their shadows.

2000: Appeared briefly in seven games for a total of 18 minutes … totaled six tackles, including two sacks … three of his tackles and one of his sacks came at Iowa, his top performance of the year … recorded his other sack against Michigan State.

2000 Media Guide: Ohio State’s top six defensive lineman consist of four seniors and two juniors. That may not mean much to many people but it means worlds to Tim Anderson, a huge part of the Ohio State defense’s future and a former high school state wrestling champion. Anderson is blessed with all the tools necessary to be successful – size, speed, athletic ability and a great work ethic. After redshirting last year, he’ll get the chance to use those tools for the first time this season. Jim Heacock, defensive line coach, said. “Tim Anderson blocks very well and he’s a real competitor,” Heacock said. “He’s a good young kid that we’re counting on.”

1999: Redshirted. Anderson will enter 2000 with four years of eligibility remaining.

1999 Media Guide: Selected first-team Division III all-Ohio by the Associated Press as a senior … A USA Today honorable mention All-American … Recorded 59 tackles and seven sacks as a senior … Had 48 tackles and five sacks as a junior at Clyde High School … Undefeated state wrestling champion as a junior … Listed among the Top 100 prospects by the National Recruiting Advisor prior to senior season … Ohio Prep Football Scouting’s eighth-rated player … The son of Sandy and James Anderson.
