Four-star safety Deontay Anderson plans to visit LSU this weekend for the Bayou Picnic, an annual event held on campus to attract top recruits.
Anderson has been a top LSU target since the Tigers offered him back in April 2014. He's taken multiple visits since, and the Tigers are line to host him again this weekend.
Anderson narrowed his long list of offers to 10 back in February, and LSU made the cut along with schools like Texas, Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Alabama among others.
“LSU, I love it," Anderson said in a video interview with Scout's Ahmard Vital. "I love Coach Raymond. I love Coach Miles. He keeps in touch with me everyday, see how I’m doing, see how my grades are doing. He talks to my dad all the time. I feel very great there. You see the DBU tradition they have.”
Anderson ranks as one of the top three safeties in the country. LSU already has another four-star safety committed in Cameron Lewis, but the Tigers would love to add even more talent to its secondary.
Anderson's set to compete at The Opening this summer and the Under-Armour All-American Game in January. He intends to announce his commitment at the UA game.
“That’s my plan," Anderson said. "I always wanted to since I was little. But things could happen and it holds until National Signing Day or it happens before the Under-Armour game. It just depends.”
LSU figures to be one of his finalists regardless of when he announces his decision, and the Tigers will have a chance to strengthen their position on his visit this weekend.
Dozens of top recruits from Louisiana and outside the state are in line to visit LSU this weekend for the Bayou Picnic. Stick with TSD for coverage leading up to Saturday's big event as this figures to be a major week for LSU's recruiting efforts.
