LSU football is one of the teams to beat for a highly rated 2021 tight end.
South Carolina and USC are the other two programs in Trigg’s top three.
Trigg, 6-foot-4/230 lbs from Tampa, FL (Carrollwood Day), is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 22 player in the state of Florida and the No. 5 tight end in the nation. He’s also rated as the No. 152 overall 2021 recruit in the nation.
The dynamic tight end is described by 247Sports director of scouting Barton Simmons as a “natural hands catcher” with “good body control and ball skills”.
Simmons also notes that Trigg is “very much a hybrid type that may not fit every offense”.
Where does LSU football stand in its pursuit of Trigg?
In addition to being an accomplished football player, Trigg is also a standout basketball player. One of the reasons he’s focusing on LSU, South Carolina, and USC is because those three schools are giving him the opportunity to play both basketball and football.
LSU was one of the first programs to offer Trigg an opportunity to play both sports.
Last month, Trigg told Rivals that he wasn’t ready to narrow down his list of schools yet, but still said that the Tigers were definitely in his top five. So it wasn’t a surprise to LSU included in his top three. It’s reasonable to assume that LSU is a legitimate threat to land Trigg.
For now, it’s unclear when Trigg will commit, though he admitted that he could possibly announce a decision in September if visits aren’t allowed to resume this fall.
At this point, with the B1G deciding to postpone their season, it would be quite a surprise if visits were allowed to resume before the first of the year.
