LSU commit Dee Anderson ruled ineligible

LSU commit Dee Anderson was denied eligibility for his senior season by a unanimous ruling Thursday.

LSU commit Dee Anderson's senior season is in jeopardy after a Thursday ruling.

The 8-6A District Executive Committee made a unanimous determination denying Anderson eligibilty. He transferred to DeSoto HS after being dismissed from the West Mesquite football team in the spring.

Anderson was reportedly kicked off after fights with teammates.

Anderson transferred to a new public school with hopes that he'd be able to play his final season of high school football. But Texas has strict stipulations against kids transferring for athletic purposes.

Anderson told reporters that he moved to DeSoto for "family reasons" but admitted he wouldn't have done that had he not been dismissed from the West Mesquite team.

Anderson's only option now is to find a private school that will take him for his senior year.

Anderson committed to LSU a little more than one year ago. A four-star prospect in the 2016 class, he's hopeful that he'll be able to enroll early at LSU and participate in next spring's practices. That would be even more important if he's not able to play his senior year.

LSU has honored his commitment throughout this ordeal.
