LSU football received a bit of bad news on Saturday.

2022 four-star defensive back Bryce Anderson announced that he’s no longer committed to the Tigers.

“I would like to thank Coach Orgeron and the entire coaching staff at Louisiana State University for showing me and my family love throughout this entire process,” wrote Anderson in a tweet.

“I want to be certain that I am making the best decision for myself, my future, and my family. With that being said I will be de-committing from LSU and opening up my recruitment.”

LSU football is still in the mix for Bryce Anderson

Losing Anderson’s commitment is obviously a big loss for the Tigers.

The Texas native is rated as the No. 4 safety in the nation (247Sports composite). He’s clearly a player that LSU wants in their 2022 recruiting class.

The good news here is that the Tigers still have a chance to land Anderson

Rivals reported on Saturday that the LSU “is not out of the picture yet” according to a source close to Anderson.

Alabama, Ohio State Texas A&M, Texas, and USC are the programs that are pushing for Anderson.

Rivals, however, believes that Anderson’s decision will likely come down to Texas A&M and LSU (and it will come sometime before Anderson’s senior season in the fall).

There’s a long way to go in this battle. Visits — if they’re allowed to happen — could change everything (the NCAA recruiting shutdown currently runs through April 15).

Ultimately, commitments don’t mean very much. It’s all about the signature on signing day (we’ve seen plenty of recruits flip their commitment at the last minute). LSU still has plenty of time to land Anderson’s signature when it counts.
