Aaron Anderson, speedy slot receiver and former LSU pledge, commits to Alabama
Aaron Anderson, a one-time LSU commitment who decommitted from the Tigers on October 18, committed to Alabama Friday night during halftime of his high school game.
Anderson ranks as the nation’s No. 16 overall wide receiver and the state of Louisiana’s No. 10 overall player for the class of 2022, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings, and he’s one of the bigger playmakers in the entire nation. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound slot pass catcher can house it at any given moment.
Anderson attends Edna Karr high school in New Orleans, and he explained Friday night following his football game why he committed to the Tide.
“I made this decision, because based on Coach Orgeron at LSU, you know, we had an agreement if he were to leave, I would be taking my talents to Alabama,” Anderson said. “The staff at LSU — we made that commitment. … I had this in my mind for a little while.
“I know you all (LSU fans) are a little bit disappointed, but I had to make the best decision for me. Roll Tide, baby.”
