Brian Kelly has landed his first big fish out of the NCAA Transfer Portal. Sunday evening, former 5-star wide receiver Aaron Anderson announced his commitment to LSU, giving this receiving corps another lethal weapon for the foreseeable future.
The Alabama transfer did not record any stats in his freshman campaign with the Crimson Tide after suffering an injury early in the season.
A former Edna Karr standout, Anderson was rated as a Top-50 prospect in the 2022 class. A Top-5 wide receiver in the country, the Louisiana legend took the nation by storm in his senior season. Along with being a deep threat on offense, Anderson can be utilized as a return specialist, a position group LSU struggled with a season ago. As versatile as it gets, Kelly and this program add a big-time playmaker for the future.
