A national recruiting analyst is a big fan of one of LSU football’s 2022 commits.

2022 four-star defensive back Bryce Anderson was the first player to commit to LSU football‘s 2022 recruiting class.

Anderson, 6-foot/187 lbs from Beaumont, TX (West Brook), is rated by 247Sports as the No. 14 player in the state of Texas and the No. 4 safety in the nation. He’s also rated as the No. 92 overall 2022 recruit in the nation.

The Texas native, who also has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Ohio State, and USC, among others, recently received some rave reviews from Rivals national recruiting analyst Sam Spiegelman.

“Anderson is a do-it-all defensive back in the 2022 class and could have a future at cornerback, safety, or as a nickel when he arrives at LSU,” wrote Spiegelman.

The Rivals recruiting analyst added, “as a defensive back he’s excellent in 1-on-1 coverage or patrolling the back end of the secondary”.

Anderson has been committed to the Tigers since September 1, 2019.

What others are saying about the LSU football commit

247Sports midlands region recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks is also a big fan of Anderson.

Brooks says Anderson “could provide versatility thanks to athleticism, instincts, and awareness”.

The 247Sports recruiting analyst also noted that Anderson is “one of the top defensive prospects in Texas for 2022”.

Anderson also runs track in high school, which indicates he has the elite speed necessary to play as a defensive back in the SEC.

According to 247Sports, the NFL comparison for Anderson is former Alabama safety Deionte Thompson, who was selected in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals.

Other programs — especially Oklahoma, Texas, and Texas A&M — are going to continue to pursue Anderson. LSU will have to work hard to keep the talented defensive back in the commit column.
