LSU football is in the mix to land one of the nation’s top 2021 offensive linemen.

2021 four-star offensive lineman Bryce Foster has LSU football among his top five schools.

Foster, 6-foot-5/318 lbs from Katy, TX, is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 2 offensive guard in the nation and the No. 11 player in the state of Texas.

The Texas native revealed his top five schools via Twitter on Monday evening.

Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas and Texas A&M also made the cut.

Foster is described by 247Sports recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks as a player with college ready size who can be a difference maker in the run game. Brooks also noted that Foster has “long term potential to reach the NFL draft”.

It’s going to be tough for LSU, or any program, to beat out Texas A&M for Foster.

That’s because Texas A&M is close to Foster’s hometown (just over an hour away). And also because Foster’s brother, Braden Meador, played for the Aggies from 2012-2016.

Foster told Rivals last fall that he’s been able to build a solid relationship with Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher, due to the fact that he can head to College Station “any weekend” that he wants.

Of course, if there’s any school that can beat out Texas A&M, it’s LSU — the defending national champions.

LSU is a threat to land any recruit in the nation right now. After going 15-0 and beating Clemson in the national championship game, the Tigers have the attention of nearly every highly rated recruit in the country.

There’s still a ways to go in Foster’s recruitment, but I’d expect LSU to be a factor until the very end.
