Anderson, the pick No.2 in last year's NAB AFL Draft, has been nominated after winning 15 disposals, seven score involvements, five marks and kicking a goal in Saturday's impressive victory over Sydney.

He joins teammates Matt Rowell, Connor Budarick and Izak Rankine in earning a Rising Star nomination this season, with the club's incredibly promising batch of youngsters driving the team's improvement so far this year.

Anderson, 19, is a precociously talented goalkicking midfielder who starred for both the Oakleigh Chargers and Vic Metro throughout a draft year that saw him rocket to the top of recruiters' sights, alongside his best mate and now Suns teammate Rowell.

He has enjoyed a promising start to his maiden season in the AFL system, playing all seven senior matches so far this year while averaging 14.9 disposals per game in a role on the wing.

Anderson capped Saturday's victory with a hard-running goal in the first quarter, where the teenager sprinted over 100m to finish an end-to-end Suns move before strolling into an open goal.
