Video: Meet Dres Anderson, Utah's 'Red Rocket'

With a strong class of Pac-12 wide receivers moving on to the NFL after the 2013 season, Utah's Dres Anderson enters this year as one of the conference's top returning wideouts. And he is more than okay with that.

Anderson burst onto the scene with a huge 2013 season. He led the Utes in all major receiving categories by hauling in 53 passes for 1,002 yards, grabbing seven touchdowns, and averaging 83.5 yards per game. His 18.91 yards per catch led the entire Pac-12 and his seven receptions of 50 yards or more were tied for the most in the nation.

With junior quarterback Travis Wilson back in the mix after battling a concussion issue in 2013 and strong bloodlines (Anderson's father, Flipper Anderson, played 10 season in the NFL), Dres Anderson is poised to improve on last season's numbers.

The 6'2" senior from Riverside, California talked with Pac-12 Networks' Curtis Conway as part of the "Football Training Camp" tour's stop in Salt Lake City and let us know what his colorful nickname is as well as whether or not he could beat his father in a race. Check out the video above to get to know the man who could be known as the best receiver in the Pac-12 by the end of the 2014 season.
