In just a few days, LSU has lost a pair of touted commitments as New Orleans native AJ Johnson has just become the latest player to decommit from Ed Orgeron’s program.

Johnson’s decision comes days after five-star defensive back Jacoby Mathews decommitted to LSU on his way to visit Jimbo Fisher’s Texas A&M program.

Johnson originally committed to LSU back in February. He was set to close out his senior season at Isidore Newman playing with five-star 2023 quarterback prospect Arch Manning but Shea Dixon of 247Sports is reporting that Johnson is moving to Florida.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Johnson is rated as the No. 40 receiver in the country and a top 300 overall prospect in the 2022 recruiting cycle according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Following this news, LSU is down to 15 commitments in the 2022 recruiting cycle. The Tigers currently have the No. 2 recruiting class in the SEC.
