LSU football could be the team to beat for an elite offensive lineman from Houston.

Rivals recruiting analyst Sam Spiegelman described four-star offensive lineman Jaeden Roberts last fall as “one of the most sought-after offensive linemen in the country”, so it’s no surprise that LSU football is heavily recruiting the talented 2021 recruit.

Roberts, who is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 7 offensive guard in the nation, told Rivals recently that his top three schools are Alabama, Oklahoma State and LSU.

The Tigers, however, might be the team to beat for the potentially elite offensive guard.

Roberts told Rivals this week “LSU is my dream school and I’m honored to be (offered) by a national (championship) team”.

“LSU has a lot of great talent and teamwork on the team so it’s exciting to see the offensive linemen and others get signed (in NFL Draft)”, added Roberts.

For now, it’s unclear when Roberts will commit. He admitted to Rivals that the ongoing coronavirus outbreak has likely altered his commitment timeline.

Though regardless of the timeline, it’s clear that LSU is in a good spot for Roberts, who is originally from Kansas.

If the Tigers end up landing Roberts, they’ll be getting a player who is described by 247Sports midland region recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks as a “Power 5-caliber interior offensive line prospect who can plow the row in the run game and possesses the size to give pass-rushers a large obstacle to navigate in pass protection”.

Brooks also says Roberts is “fairly quick when pulling or getting to the second level relative to size” and “shows good straight-line athleticism on tape”.
