On Sunday afternoon, LSU head football coach Ed Orgeron & Scott Woodward announced that it was best for the program that they mutually part ways. Many know when a decision like this is made, the type of impact it could have on prospects that are currently committed
Edna Karr 4-star ATH Aaron Anderson C/0 2022 shared this morning that he has de-committed from LSU after hearing the news on yesterday. He has been committed to the Tigers since December 19 of last year.
"I feel like it's best for me to reopen my recruitment because Coach O was the main reason I committed to LSU," Anderson said. "We had a special bond outside of football & he really made me feel like I was his family."
The Under Armour All-American currently holds over 25 plus offers from some of the top programs in the country, one which includes Alabama. Defensive coordinator Pete Golding has been the lead recruiter with Anderson & their relationship has gotten pretty strong since the summer.
"Alabama has been recruiting me hard for a while," Anderson said. “Coach Golding & I have a real tight relationship. And with him being from Louisiana we relate on a lot of different things. "I took an official visit there & I've been to a game there this season so I know exactly what they have to offer.”
“I got to talk to coach Saban every time I went there & he let me know that they really want me. Right now, I probably would say they're the frontrunner but I'm still open to see what other programs could be a good fit for me."
It remains to be seen who will be LSU's next head coach, but Anderson expressed that he would still be open to the Tigers depending on who gets the job.
"I'll just have to see who LSU ends up hiring because I have to make sure it'll be a good fit for me," Anderson said. "I also want to see what Texas A&M & Florida State have to offer, so I plan on possibly taking official visits to those two schools soon."
