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."
Last Friday morning via Twitter, Woodlawn dual-threat quarterback Rickie Collins committed to the Purdue Boilermakers.
According to 247Sports, Collins is ranked the No. 15 quarterback in the country & the No. 14 player overall in Louisiana for 2023. His most notable offers are from LSU, Arkansas, Virginia Tech, Louisville, & TCU.
With signing day more than over a year away, Collins felt it was time to give his pledge to a school.
“When I went up there for an unofficial visit, everybody was so friendly & I love how the whole town is behind the football team,” Collins said. “Purdue was one of my first offers & they stayed communicating with me to build a bond, that meant a lot to me.”
Collins has a prototype size at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds. And out of all of the talented quarterbacks in the state, Collins probably has the best arm talent regardless of class that’s not named Walker Howard.
How does a kid of this status end up committing to Purdue when he had “supposedly” better options on the table??? — — Well, lead recruiter & special teams coordinator Marty Biagi has ties to Baton Rouge since his days at Southern University (2012-2014). Head Coach Jeff Brohm & his brother Brian Brohm (offensive coordinator) are former quarterbacks.
Both played quarterback at the University of Louisville, but Brian Brohm was one of the best quarterbacks in the county when he starred there (2004-2007) & was drafted in the second round by the Green Bay Packers.
“My relationship with coach Biagi along with coach Jeff & Brian Brohm is on a deeper level than just football,” Collins said. “The more we talked we learned there’s a lot of things that we have in common other than football. And being able to learn from coach Brian played a big factor into my decision because of his experience.”
The Boilermakers coaching staff will have their work cut out for them to keep Collins apart of their 2023 class. With over a year away, many more top tier programs will get into the mix to try and steer the talented dual-threat quarterback away from West Lafayette, Indiana. Oh & by the way, Collins finished last night's game versus an undefeated St. Amant team 16 of 19 for 459 yards & 7 tuddies.
Lutcher (4-0) dominated by rushing for more than 400 yards to continue their undefeated streak. A big reason behind the rushing attack was because of the Bulldogs offensive line led by Nicholls St commit Semaj Scott. They also snapped a four-game losing streak to St. James.
The Bulldogs quarterback D’Wanye “Lunch” Winfield was a man amongst boys rushing for 259 yards & 5 touchdowns. He also went 6-of-8 passing for 58 yards.
At halftime, the Bulldogs were on top 28-0 but the Wildcats would show some life in the third quarter when running back Daniel Jupiter finally put them on the board with a 4-yard touchdown run.
The Wildcats came back the following possession & made the score 28-12 after a block punt that resulted in a touchdown recovery by Daniel Jupiter. The Bulldogs continued their rushing attack the rest of the game scoring on two straight possessions to make the score 41-14.
Lutcher snapped a four-game losing streak to St. James & made a case that they should be a team to keep an eye in 3A come playoff time.

Karr has won the last nine meetings, four of them in the postseason, including the Class 4A state semifinal round last season.
In front of close to 10,000 in attendance & a bevy of college coaches, Karr was able to do what they always seem to do when their back is to the wall. And that’s find a way to win.
With less than two minutes to go in the game, Karr quarterback A.J Samuel did the unexpected on a fourth down and one by throwing a 35-yard contested pass to senior Yarun McMath *McNeese St commit* to the Easton 1-yard line.
Two plays later, Samuel avoided two would be tacklers to get into the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown with only 32 seconds left in the game.

Samuel connected with Aaron Anderson on the first play from scrimmage for a 65-yard touchdown for an early 7-0 Cougars lead.
Senior quarterback Keddrick Connelly connected with Leon Ellioe for a 47-yard touchdown. Easton’s two-point conversion attempt failed leaving Karr up 7-6.
Warren Easton would strike again when running back Jay Gordon scores on a 6-yard touchdown run to give Easton a 12-7 lead. Gordon would score again from 3 yards out to give the Eagles a 18-7 lead right before the half.
