KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Some big recruiting targets made their way to Tennessee’s last high school camp of the summer.
Outside linebacker Adam Anderson camped with Tennessee on Thursday. He is one of the Vols’ top remaining targets in the Class of 2018.
Anderson made the trip with teammate and Tennessee commit Jamarcus Chatman. The duo from Rome, Ga., always has liked the idea of playing college football together.
“That had always been our plan at a younger age,” Anderson said. “We are just trying to decide right now.
“We’re still debating. It would be a good thing to do.”
Anderson and Chatman committed to LSU at the same time at the Tigers’ spring game. Tennessee coach Butch Jones successfully swayed Chatman, a defensive lineman, to commit to the Vols after Orange Carpet Day.
Anderson de-committed from LSU on July 6 and released his top 5 schools four days later.

The Tennessee coaching staff told Anderson on Thursday where they envision him playing while showing him different defensive techniques.
No one pressured him to commit, and Anderson enjoyed how the day unfolded.
“It’s been pretty good so far,” he said.
Anderson had made only one other trip to Knoxville before the camp, and that was for the Florida game last fall. The environment stood out.
“It was very good,” Anderson said. “There are a lot of fans around here and a very good place to be around. A very good amount of fans that show love to a lot of players.”
Anderson rates as a 4-star prospect and the No. 2 outside linebacker in the class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He ranks as the No. 37 overall prospect.
Tennessee does not hold a commitment from a linebacker this cycle.
