Top Linebacker Adam Anderson Visits Tennessee

Can the Vols stay hot?

Adam Anderson — teammate of Tennessee commit Jamarcus Chatman — visited Tennessee today. Anderson actually gave Tennessee the number one recruiting class in the SEC when he decommitted from LSU a few weeks back.

Everyone immediately pointed towards Georgia when he left LSU, but Tennessee has the added benefit of Chatman here. Anderson told SEC Country that “the plan has always been to play together,” when speaking about Chatman. The 247 Sports crystal ball projections still point heavily to Georgia, however.

Anderson is 6-4, 214 pounds. He’s listed as an outside linebacker, but he’s really a pass rusher. 214 pounds is a little light for Tennessee’s base 4-3 scheme, however. It would be interesting to see how Bob Shoop and Brady Hoke would use Anderson.

With Greg Emerson and Jamarcus Chatman already in the fold, a move off the line of scrimmage may be where Anderson would land in Knoxville. But first things first, Tennessee has to gain Anderson’s commitment.

Will a crowed defensive end group scare off Anderson? Will the scheme? I’m sure all of this was covered today in Anderson’s visit. This was Anderson’s second visit to Knoxville — we’ll see if it’s enough to sway him to commit.
