LSU Football: Four-Star DE Adam Anderson Flips From Georgia To Tigers

|

Four-star defensive end Adam Anderson believes in what LSU football coach Ed Orgeron is building in Baton Rouge.

After initially giving his commitment to the Georgia Bulldogs, Anderson was swayed to reverse course and announced his intention to play for the Tigers

Anderson was wooed by Orgeron while on a visit with two of his Rome High School teammates. They also became convinced that LSU was right for them, and will be attending as a trio.

Teammate Jamarcus Chatman is ranked No. 259 on the ESPN 300 as a defensive end, and Jaquon Griffin is an unranked defensive tackle.

For the Bulldogs, they lose a commitment they had going back to Aug. 5, 2016. A Georgia product, he wasn’t an area of concern for the Bulldogs until recently. He visited with Auburn in late January, but otherwise hadn’t bee actively looking at other schools for what Georgia could tell.

Anderson took an unofficial visit with LSU on April 21, and flipped his commitment the following day.

This goes to speak on the fickle nature of recruiting high school athletes. Don’t be surprised if he flips back to Georgia or elsewhere. The Bulldogs are certainly not going to concede pursuit of the talented defensive end with so much time remaining to secure an official commitment from him.
