With things already crazy enough in the Anderson household, 6-foot-6, 265-pound four-star selection Rhyan Anderson took his third official visit of the recruiting season this past weekend to USC. And in typical Anderson style, he let a few hints out, but still kept some of his thoughts a deep guarded secret.
“I’ve had some better trips than USC so far, but I won’t say who,” Anderson said. “But I also was blown away by a lot of things that I saw when I was out there. They have some really great fans and I’m a big fan of coach (Ed) Orgeron. He’s very cool and easy to talk to.”
Anderson said another highlight of his visit was going out to eat at a Greek restaurant that came complete with belly dancers and the cast from My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
“That was definitely a culture shock, but the food was amazing,” Anderson said with a laugh. “They were playing music and dancing around. That was a lot of fun.”
Anderson then began to compare facilities and he gave Ohio State top billing, but he also came away with glowing comments about the coaching staff at Florida and at USC. He is next scheduled to visit Oklahoma this upcoming weekend and then Miami on January 16. He remains insistent that he’s going to not commit until he takes all of his visits.
“I still have a top team in my mind, and I’ve got them on top with the others trying to knock them off,” Anderson said.
And just like before.
“I really don’t want to say anything until I take my visits,” he said. “You’ll find out around signing day where I’m going.”
