Not much has changed for Anderson

Kyle Anderson (6-4, 250, 4.8) committed to LSU only days before his senior year at The Woodlands (Texas) began but since then a lot has changed on the Tigers' front.

The nation's 12th ranked tight end made an official visit over the weekend to see if LSU still had everything he was looking for in a school and he gave the trip a big thumbs up.

"I just got back and it was awesome," he said. "It was great getting to know the coaches and all of the recruits. It was a lot of fun."

When Nick Saban decided to make the jump to the NFL, one of Anderson's concerns was getting to know the new coaching staff in a short period of time.

"They are awesome," Anderson told Tiger Rag. "I feel really comfortable with the coaches. They are a great group of guys."

Something else that made Anderson start looking at other schools like Nebraska, Arkansas, Kansas State and Texas Tech was the fact that he was unsure of how the new coaching staff would use the tight ends in their system.

After sitting down with his new position coach, Anderson said he likes what he sees in his future.

"I got to sit down with coach (Josh) Henson and we looked at my highlight film to see what I did good and what I needed to work on," he said. "Then we looked at what they did at Oklahoma State. He said they will use a lot of two tight end sets and they plan to use the tight ends more if they can get the right athletes at that spot.

Before leaving Baton Rouge on Sunday the subject of taking official visits came up with Anderson and Les Miles and it was a touchy subject.

"I was thinking of taking a trip to Texas Tech just to check it out because I have a lot of friends who go to school there," Anderson said. "I'm not serious about going there but just to check it out. I talked to coach Miles about that and he did not seem too excited about that idea. I guess I understand but I don't know what I'm going to do."

As for his commitment to the Tigers?

"I'm solid to LSU," he said.
