Elite five-star running back and major LSU target Cam Akers will be announcing his college decision on Tuesday, Dec. 27 at 7 pm CT.

He will be deciding between Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, Alabama, Florida State and Tennessee.


The 5-11, 213-pound prospect from Clinton, MS is rated the No. 2 running back in the country and No. 1 player from Mississippi for 2017, according to all major recruiting websites.

He was originally committed to Alabama but reopened his recruitment back in March. The Crimson Tide currently have two running back committed for the class of 2017.

LSU currently only has one running back commitment for the class of 2017 in four-star prospect Clyde Edwards-Helaire from Baton Rouge, LA (Catholic HS).

Head coach Ed Orgeron and running back coach Jabbar Juluke visited Akers back in late November.

LSU would have a shot if they were still relevant

Lesson learned: Cut your losses early. Indecision and sentimentality are relevance killers.

Spot on Datbayoubengal. We know Guice is bad to the bone. And we've seen glimpses of Williams talent when given the opportunity. Lanard and Hellaire are unknown commodities, but I'm sure they are very talented as well. But the man I fully expect to vault forward is Nick Brossette! He looks to have similar qualities to Guice. Just needs playing time. Which I'm sure he'll get under Coach C. That being said, Akers would be a welcome addition to RBU! You can never have too many!

He's going to Bama. He only reopened his recruitment to get a few free visits. Now that he has had some fun, he gonna re-commit to the schoil he always intended to go to. Which is the team he originally committed to. These kids do this every year. Nothing new.

why would an 5 star rb go to the noles to wait behind 7 other rb's at florida state. florida state loaded at rb. so is bama. they loaded at rb. i know lsu definitely needs an rb, only got guice that is flashy and he gone in a yr from now. thats just my thinking

Because Cam is better than any RB FSU has right now. You're acting like LSU doesn't have Guice, Williams, Brossette, La Fournette, and Edwards-helaire for 2017. Cam would likely be 2nd to Guice 3-5 games into the season, but he would likely start within 3-5 games at FSU.
