LSU football lost a 2021 commit on Tuesday evening.

2021 three-star defensive lineman Anthony Hundley announced on Tuesday that he’s no longer committed to LSU football.

Hundley, 6-foot-3/270 lbs from Bradenton, FL (IMG Acadamy), is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 37 defensive tackle in the nation and the No. 83 player in the state of Florida. He’s also rated as the No. 607 overall 2021 recruit in the nation.

Hundley committed to the Tigers over a year ago (November 17, 2019).

Losing Hundley may not seem like a big deal — due to his “low” rating — but this decommitment should sting a bit for LSU.

Why LSU football didn’t want to lose Hundley

Three-star players are a dime a dozen for programs like LSU. But Hundley is a player that will likely be elevated from three-star to four-star status in the not-so-distant future.

“He (Hundley) certainly outperformed his three-star ranking and could make the case for a rankings bump if his senior season continues along this trajectory,” wrote Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy earlier this fall.

So why did the talented defensive lineman decide to look around?

“I want to make sure I find the place that is best for me, somewhere I can call home,” said Hundley in a tweet. “I will be taking the next couple weeks to make this decision and will be graduating and enrolling early. I’m open to everywhere…”

I’m not sure if LSU is still in the mix here, but they should certainly continue to pursue Hundley. He’s going to be a solid college football player.

LSU’s 2021 recruiting class is still ranked No. 3 in the nation (with 21 commits) even with the loss of Hundley.
