Colorado is in search for offensive linemen, tackle type prospects for this upcoming recruiting class.

One Arizona lineman that appears to be high on the Buffs radar is Scottsdale Saguaro athlete Alex Anderson.

BuffPlayBook.com caught up with Anderson to get his take on the Colorado football program.

"I have visited once already and hoping to be back to Colorado sometime late this summer," Anderson said. "If not I'm definitely going to take one of my official visits there."

Anderson attended the Buff's Junior Day and Spring game earlier this spring and came away very impressed with Colorado's new coaching staff.

"I really like their new coaching staff," Anderson said. "Their program seems like it's headed in the right direction, things are looking good for them."

New offensive line coach Gary Bernardi is recruiting Anderson for the Buffs.

"He is telling me how much he likes my work ethic," Anderson said. "How I would be a great fit for their program. I have built a good relationship with Coach Bernardi."

Anderson was impressed with the Colorado campus, enough for him to have the Buffs in his top four favorites.

"Campus is beautiful, I love it there," Anderson said. "My top four schools right now are Oregon State, Colorado, San Diego State and San Jose State."

The 6-foot-5, 295-pound lineman has nine official offers including ones from Colorado, Colorado State, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon State, San Diego State, San Jose State and Utah State.

Anderson is rated by Scout.com as a three star offensive tackle and is the No. 75th tackle in the nation.
