Caleb Roddy held his own at The Opening

Scout's national recruiting analyst said LSU commit Caleb Roddy exceeded his expectations

LSU commit Caleb Roddy may see a boost in his rankings after his performance this week at The Opening.

Roddy had a hot spring, landing offers from many of the major programs in the SEC. He picked up the one he desperately wanted last month at LSU's camp and committed on the spot. He represented the Tigers well this week, and earned some high praise from those in attendance. Scout's national recruiting analyst Chad Simmons gave the three-star defensive end glowing reviews. “He’s better than what I expected," Simmons said. "He definitely held his own with some of the best OL in the country. He outperformed my expectations this week.”

It's more than just his game though. Simmons said that Roddy's mindset is what makes him so special.

“He’s a kid that’s very mature," Simmons said. "He can handle the demands they put on you at LSU. He loves to go to work. His dream offer was LSU. When your heart’s there, you’re all in.”
