Stud Safety Grant Delpit Commits to LSU

Tigers land four-star safety.

The Tigers picked up another big name for the recruiting class of 2017 in four-star safety Grant Delpit.

Delpit, the No. 4 safety in the 247 Sports rankings and 9th in the composite, made his announcement at The Opening in Beaverton, where he has impressed. He cited Tyrann Mathieu as an influence in this video with SB Nation Recruiting, and has been recruited for some time by Bradley Dale Peveto and Corey Raymond.

Delpit, 6-4, 181 pounds, will play at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., after spending his junior year at Lamar High School in Houston. He marks 15 commitments for the class of ‘17.

I’ll leave the deeper breakdown for our recruiting experts, but Delpit looks to me like the ideal center-field type of free safety that can cover a lot of ground.
