“I got to talk to (Heupel) a good bit on the drive. ... Spring break was fun, and then I went on the recruiting trip, and it was, like, every single hour of the day I was calling somebody else,” Anderson said Sunday during the National College Evaluation Camp at Murfreesboro’s Blackman High School.
“Even if I wasn’t on a campus, I was calling somebody else. I tried not to do anything recruiting-wise this past week, and it was pretty great. But I got some time to talk with them for a while.”
The 6-foot-7, 270-pound Anderson said the focus of his conversations with Tennessee’s new coaches has “just been relationship-building.” He’s still getting to know them, but he said he likes what he has heard from the Vols so far.
“The more you can talk to somebody, the more you can see them and visualize them as a person,” said Anderson, who’s ranked the No. 239 overall prospect and No. 28 offensive tackle in the 2022 class and the No. 8 junior from the state of Tennessee, according to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite.
“It’s been good to get to know their personalities and that kind of stuff.”
“They all have good personalities, no doubt,” Anderson said. “(Tennessee’s new offense) is always interesting to think about. The uniqueness is always cool, and having an offense that’s different and successful, that’s always good.”
Fisher Anderson is planning to take his official visits this summer before a late summer decision in our opinion. He has been to Knoxville a bunch with a sibling already going to school at Tennessee. He just needs to get face to face with the new staff. Glenn Elarbee has done a good job showing him how he teaches through Zoom and Heupel has made sure he knows he is a priority. He got an offer from Stanford last week and that is a big one because he does covet his education so much. Distance won’t be a factor but we still believe the ability for his family to see him play in an easier manner could be something that helps Tennessee.
