LSU football is one of the 13 teams in the mix for four-star tight end Oscar Delp

Delp, 6-foot-5/220 lbs from Cumming, GA (West Forsyth), revealed a top 13 on Monday of Northwestern, Clemson, LSU, Stanford, USC, Alabama, Oklahoma, Michigan, Georgia, North Carolina, Florida, South Carolina, and Auburn.

The Georgia native is ranked as the No. 10 tight end in the 2022 recruiting class. He’s also ranked as the No. 235 overall recruit in the country.

So what are the Tigers’ chances of landing the talented tight end?

LSU football is a factor, but not the favorites

It sounds like LSU is certainly a factor for Delp, but it doesn’t appear that the Tigers are the favorites in this recruiting battle.

Delp recently spoke to 247Sports about his recruitment and he noted that Georgia, Clemson, and Michigan are the schools really at the top of his list. He also mentioned that Michigan has been a dream school for him.

“Growing up Michigan was my dream offer. It was also my first offer as well and I have a great relationship with Coach Moore,” said Delp. “I have family up there and the school has a great program and great academics.”

Delp has a family connection to Clemson as well.

“My uncle played at Clemson and was roommates with Coach Streeter so we know him as a family friend,” explained Delp. “I also have been beginning to develop a great relationship with Coach Pearman and love the winning culture at Clemson.”

Georgia obviously has a geographical advantage, which is likely why they’re near the top of Delp’s list.

Delp said his next move could either be a commitment or releasing a top three. I wouldn’t expect the Tigers to be in that top three.
