LSU Steps up to the Plate With Offer for Scout 300 WR Anthony Schwartz

Fresh off an LSU offer, Scout 300 receiver Anthony Schwartz has one school sitting atop his list, but says other schools are "sneaking up" as well.

Coach Ed Orgeron and LSU just opted to take the next step by delivering an offer to Scout 300 receiver, Anthony Schwartz, one of the fastest prospects across the map.

Schwartz, a product of Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage who has the Florida Gators on top, is labeled as the nation's 43rd-ranked wide receiver and 255th-ranked player overall on Scout.

"I have always been kind of fond of LSU since I was a kid," Schwartz said. "They have a great football history, especially with putting their players into the league.

"They also have one of the top sprint programs in the nation for track."

A recipient of nearly 25 offers overall, the 6-foot, 175-pound Schwartz says he still needs to touch base with the Tigers' staff after receiving the pleasant news from his head coach.

"I didn't talk to the coaches yet," Schwartz said. "Coach Pat (Surtain) told me that they offered me."

The University of Florida has been atop Schwartz's list since the day they offered back in mid-January, but the game-changing receiver says "schools are sneaking up."

"I feel prioritized by (Florida), and mixed in with the fact that they have one of the best track programs in the nation," Schwartz said.

With that being said, which schools are pushing all the right buttons and giving Florida a run for their money?

"It's mainly GeorgiaUSCLSUAuburn and Miami (Fl)," Schwartz said. "Notre Dame is getting up there."

Schwartz says FloridaAuburnGeorgia and Florida State are slated to receive visits from April 7-10.
