LSU suffers first decommitment since Ed Orgeron departure announcement
An LSU recruit who’s been committed to the Tigers for nearly a year announced on Monday that he would de-commit from the program following the news that Ed Orgeron is leaving the program.
Aaron Anderson is a 5-foot-9 and 185-pound athlete and 4-star class of 2022 prospect out of New Orleans (Edna Karr). He had been committed to the Tigers since Dec. 19 of last year. At the time of the Orgeron news on Sunday, LSU’s recruiting class was ranked No. 3 in the SEC, and No. 9 in the country.
“I feel like it’s best for me to open my recruitment because Coach O was the main reason I committed to LSU,” Anderson told Gsportz.
Anderson is the No. 22 wide receiver in the country, and the No. 11 player in the state of Louisiana, according to the 247Sports Composite.
For Anderson, it’s a wait and see approach at the moment.
“I’ll just have to see who LSU ends up hiring because I have to make sure it’ll be a good fit for me,” Anderson said. “I also want to see what Texas A&M & Florida State have to offer, so I plan on possibly taking official visits to those two schools soon.”
