BREAKING: Alabama WR Aaron Anderson Commits to LSU
Brian Kelly has landed his first big catch from the NCAA Transfer Portal. Aaron Anderson, a former 5-star wide receiver, announced his commitment on Sunday evening. LSUThis will give the receiving corps another lethal weapon in the future.
After suffering an injury in the first half of the season, the Alabama transfer didn’t record any stats during his first campaign with the Crimson Tide.
Anderson, a former Edna Karr standout was rated as a Top-50 prospect for the 2022 class. The Louisiana legend was a Top-5 wide receiver in the nation in his senior season.
Anderson can also be used as a deep threat offensively. This is a position LSU struggled with last season. Kelly and this program are as versatile as they come. They will be a major playmaker in the future.
Brian Kelly’s Transfer Portal Message
Kelly stated, “They have to be the right fit” first. They must recognize the value of an LSU education. They must possess the right traits. We are more than open for business. We don’t just put up a sign saying “hey, we will take anyone”. They must be the right fit. If they can be found, I prefer that they come from Louisiana. Then we will address the needs based on how that freshman class marries into it, based on the particular needs of each position class.
“We are not going overload a particular position group. This means that if you have three or four wide receivers who are freshmen, you might not see a lot of influence in that position’s portal.
“We will also develop based on our freshman class. This allows us to do both simultaneously and also allows our program to be more youthful. Both of these are important to us. We don’t want to make it a program that we just transfer and then turn over.
