LSU Football: Tigers in danger of losing commitment from 2022 DB

2022 four-star defensive back Bryce Anderson has been committed to LSU football for well over a year but that could be changing soon.

Steve Wiltfong, who covers recruiting for 247Sports, reported this week that Texas A&M is in a position to flip Anderson.

Wiltfong also noted that Alabama and Ohio State are making a push for Anderson.

“Bryce Anderson has been a verbal to LSU since September of 2019 but Texas A&M is definitely in position to score a flip,” wrote Wiltfong. “He (Anderson) mentioned Alabama and Ohio State as two others he talks with, and while also saying great things about the Tigers, it’s obvious the Aggies are very much on his mind.”

Losing Bryce Anderson would be a big loss for LSU football

Anderson, 5-foot-11/187 lbs from Beaumont, TX (West Brook), is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 12 player in the state of Texas and the No. 4 safety in the nation. He’s also rated as the No. 66 overall 2022 recruit in the nation.

247Sports midland region recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks views Anderson as a multi-year starter at the collegiate level, which isn’t surprising given Anderson’s rating.

Brooks calls Anderson a ” dynamic athlete with verified track speed”, while also noting that he “could provide versatility thanks to athleticism, instincts, and awareness” and is “capable in man coverage, but also terrific covering territory as a deep safety”.

This is certainly a player that LSU wants to keep in the commit column, but it’s clear they’re going to have their cut out for them here.

The Tigers currently have eight players committed to their 2022 recruiting class.
