LSU football made a big addition to their 2021 recruiting class on Wednesday.

2021 four-star offensive tackle Garrett Dellinger made Ed Orgeron and his staff happy on Wednesday by announcing his commitment to LSU football.

Dellinger, 6-foot-5/280 lbs from Clarkston, MI, committed to the Tigers over Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State.

247Sports rates Dellinger as the No. 3 player in the state of Michigan and the No. 11 offensive tackle in the nation. He’s also rated as the No. 79 overall 2021 recruit in the nation.

Dellinger told Rivals that he committed to LSU because he had a “different feeling” around the coaching staff. The Michigan native also noted that he chose the Tigers because he wants to play against teams like Alabama, Auburn, and Georgia.

Dellinger is fired up and ready to play for LSU football

There’s no doubt that one of the reasons Dellinger committed to LSU is Coach O’s ability to motivate.

Dellinger told Rivals that Orgeron’s energy was so great that he was ready to play right there on the spot.

“Coach O, his energy, he was talking to me about playing football and I just wanted to go play right then and there,” said Dellinger.

That’s not a surprise. I can’t think of a coach in the nation that’s a better motivator than Orgeron.

Dellinger’s teammate on the way?

Earlier this month I mentioned that four-star offensive guard Rocco Spindler, Dellinger’s best friend, is also on LSU’s radar.

Dellinger and Spindler playing together at the next level would make sense.

Spindler hasn’t visited Baton Rouge yet, but he recently said he loves Coach O.

With Dellinger in the commit column, it’s hard to see the Tigers missing on Spindler.

LSU just continues to restock talent. The Tigers are going to be a force in the SEC for a long time to come.
