"I loved the coaching staff and everything is going to be brand new," said Lizanich. "We're also going to get a new stadium my sophomore year, so everything is going to be starting from a fresh slate."
Lizanich admits Tulane may not garner as much attention as many other schools but he is confident the program will soon become more recognized throughout the country.
"They will be something again. And I will be part of that."
When asked what he was looking forward to most, Lizanich said "Everything. It's a whole new experience."
Lizanich also likes what Tulane has to offer in the classroom.
"Academics are extremely good there, one of the top business schools in the country."
