Mesquite (Texas) West Mesquite Rivals250 wide receiver Dee Anderson received an offer from the LSU Tigers after a strong performance at the Tigers late July camp. On August 7, 2014, he decided he was ready to pledge his commitment to the LSU program.
"The reason I chose LSU is because the way I would fit in the system and the academics also," Anderson said.
The Tigers have been on Anderson's mind since receiving his offer. Since the camp, he has thought everything over and researched his options. After praying about his options on Wednesday, he woke up on Thursday morning and knew he was ready to make his choice.
Anderson, who plans to study engineering, does not plan to look around at other options. For Anderson it is simple. LSU is an opportunity he could no pass up.
"I decided because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity," Anderson said. Y"ou don't see a lot of juniors-to-be committing to LSU."
The 6-foot-4, 173-pound pass catcher also likes the thought of working with coach Henry.
"Coach Henry is real cool, real, real cool," Anderson said. "He knows what he's talking about."
While Anderson may not have plans to take any other college visits, he most certainly has plans to return to Baton Rouge.
"Yes sir, I'm going for sure for the LSU/Bama game and I'm going to some more games and I'll probably make a few practices," Anderson said.
Anderson chose the Tigers over offers from UCLA, Washington, Boise State, Wake Forest, Bowling Green, Louisiana-Lafayette, and SMU.
He recorded 4 receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown as a sophomore at West Mesquite, but has seen his stock skyrocket after a strong spring and summer.
Anderson is currently ranked No. 173 in the Rivals250 and is ranked No. 33 among the nation's wide receivers. He joins quarterback Feleipe Franks and wide receiver Stephen Sullivan in LSU's 2016 recruiting class.
