Four-star offensive lineman Malik Agbo was supposed to take an official visit to LSU football this weekend.

But that visit won’t happen as originally planned.

Fortunately for the Tigers, there’s a good reason the visit isn’t happening this weekend.

According to 247Sports’ Brandon Huffman, LSU and Agbo agreed to push back the visit to this fall.

The reason for rescheduling is because new Tigers offensive line coach Brad Davis hasn’t been officially announced as a staff member yet. That means he can’t take part in an official visit with a recruit.

Pushing the visit back to this fall ensures that Agbo and Davis will get to spend some time together.

Agbo, 6-foot-5/320 lbs from Federal Way, WA (Todd Beamer), is a highly sought-after 2022 recruit, so it’s imperative that he gets some one-on-one time with his potential future position coach.

LSU football has tough competition for Malik Agbo

This won’t come as a surprise, but the Tigers are going to have some tough competition for Agbo.

Alabama, Arizona State, Miami, Oklahoma, and Oregon are among the programs fighting to land the talented offensive lineman.

For now, Miami appears to be the biggest threat to LSU for Agbo.

Agbo, who also plays basketball in high school, is ranked in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 27 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 6 player in Washington.

Huffman says Agbo “projects as a multi-year Power 5 starter and projects as a third day pick”.

LSU currently has 12 players committed to its 2022 recruiting class, which is ranked No. 1 in the SEC and No. 2 in the country. The Tigers have two offensive linemen committed so far — five-star offensive tackle Will Campbell and three-star offensive tackle Bo Bordelon.
