Jeffrey Anderson favors Louisville

Jeffrey Anderson, a 6-3, 225-pound tight end from Selma, Alabama, has taken a liking to Bobby Petrino's explosive offense. With an offer from Louisville in hand, Anderson puts the Cardinals right at the top of his list of favorites.

For Selma Southside (AL) High School tight end Jeffery Anderson, Bobby Petrino's high-powered offense is attractive enough to make the Cardinals his top choice right now.

"I really like Louisville," Anderson told on Monday. "They have a great offense and they like to pass the ball."

As a junior, Anderson participated in the Alabama Junior All-Star game after reeling in 33 catches for 721 yards with three touchdowns. He also posted 17 rushes for 235 yards with three touchdowns and 326 passing yards with one touchdown. On defense he played defensive end and had 14 sacks, 58 tackles, six forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries.

"Everybody seem's to be recruiting for offense right now," Anderson said.

Everyone includes both in-state programs, Auburn and Alabama, but the 6-foot-3, 222-pound senior-to-be had a simple answer as to why he favors the Cardinals over Tigers and Crimson Tide.

"It's boring around here," Anderson explained. "Everybody keeps telling that I have to go to Alabama or Auburn, but I want to go somewhere different."

He recently visited Alabama for their Junior Day and he's planning on getting his first glimpse of the U of L program in the near future.

"I'm planning on going to Louisville's camp," he said. "I'm coming up there with my coach. I'm also going to camp at Georgia."

According to Anderson, the Bulldogs have started to express an interest, while he still hopes to hear from a couple schools in the Sunshine State.

"I like Miami and Florida, but I haven't heard anything from them yet," said Anderson.

However, he plans on giving them both, as well as others an opportunity to become involved.

"I'm going to take my time with everything," explained Anderson. "I might wait until the end before making a decision."
