2021 LSU football commit Anthony Hundley is still hearing from other programs, despite his commitment to the Tigers.

2021 three-star defensive tackle Anthony Hundley committed to LSU football last November, but that doesn’t mean other schools have stopped pursuing the Miami, FL native.

Hundley, 6-foot-3/270 lbs, is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 78 player in the state of Florida and the No. 29 defensive tackle in the nation.

The massive defensive lineman, who was previously committed to the Miami Hurricanes, committed to LSU last fall after the Tigers knocked off Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

Since then, however, other programs have continued to pursue Hundley. He recently told 247Sports that UCF, Indiana, Pittsburgh and Tennessee are “all still showing love”. Hundley noted that other programs are also reaching out to him.

But that shouldn’t scare LSU fans too much. Hundley, who said he’s been keeping in touch with Ed Orgeron and his staff during the coronavirus related shutdown, sounds like he’s solidly committed to the Tigers.

Hundley told 247Sports that his only planned visit during the offseason was to LSU. If he was considering other programs, it would seem he’d be visiting more places than just Baton Rouge.

Recruiting is always fluid, but I’d be surprised to see Hundley sign with another program.

Coach O and his staff may have found a diamond in the rough with Hundley. He’s not a highly touted recruit, but it’s clear LSU likes him a lot. Orgeron is as good as anyone in the country when it comes to evaluating defensive lineman — which means Coach O obviously thinks he can turn Hundley into a key player for the Tigers.
