2016 four-star wide receiver Dee Anderson (Mesquite, Texas) had only spoken with LSU WR coach Adam Henry once before he trekked down to Baton Rouge last week.
The message in that conversation was clear — come to camp and earn an offer.
That’s exactly what Anderson did as he turned in one of the camp’s best WR performances, landing an offer from the Tigers.
“It’s a blessing really,” Anderson said. “I like the campus. I liked everything up there. That’s all it really is, a blessing…[Coach Henry] encouraged me to come down to camp. He wanted to see me in action. I had a pretty good idea [I’d get offered], because he said they would if I did good.”
Anderson already ranks as one of the top wide receivers in the nation for his class. His ability quickly became evident as he dominated most of his one-on-one reps. The 6-foot-4 Anderson had little trouble gaining separation from the defensive backs and his physicality stood out despite his lean frame.
“I think I performed good,” Anderson said. “I have a big frame, and I run good routes. I have good catching ability…We did a couple one-on-ones, and Les Miles came up to me. He told me that they’ve seen enough, that I’d been doing great and that I had an offer from LSU.”
That offer marked Anderson’s 10th, and he doesn’t have any favorites this early in his recruitment. LSU and Tennessee were the only schools he visited this summer, and he doesn’t yet have any plans to check out any more in the fall.
Anderson arrived in Baton Rouge before the camp started on Thursday. He intended to drive back home afterward but ended up staying the night. That gave him a chance to take a closer look at the campus and everything LSU had to offer.
“I looked around the campus,” Anderson said. “It’s nice. I liked everything about it.”
