Adam Anderson, one of the highest-rated members of LSU’s 2018 recruiting class, became the Tigers’ third decommitment in the last three weeks on Thursday night.
Anderson, a four-star edge rusher/outside linebacker prospect from Rome, Georgia, was one of three commitments from Rome back in the spring. His classmate, Jamarcus Chatman, decommitted two weeks ago. Anderson and Chatman were easily the most well-regarded of the three, and without them, defensive lineman Ja’Quon Griffin may not be long for the class either. Running back AJ Carter decommitted earlier this week.
Losing Anderson is a blow, but not wholly unexpected in recruiting circles, as many suspected distance would eventually play a role. Luckily, the Tigers still have edge defenders Travez Moore, Jarell Cherry and Dantrieze Moore in the fold.
Remember, it’s still very early in the class, and there will almost certainly be plenty more twists and turns for the Tigers between now and National Signing Day. Don’t expect the coaching staff to give up on Anderson, either.
