Kraft on Anderson:
"Morgan is an optimistic competitor. She knows she's pretty good, but she also knows that she can get even better. I saw her last high school race and it was a PR (in the 1,600-meter at the Virginia State meet) and I really liked the way she raced. She definitely has the competitive first. I see her as another in a long line of recruits that we have coming in that will embrace the training and look forward to the competitions. She will be good in a lot of events."
