The LSU 2018 recruiting class suffered a big blow on Thursday night when outside linebacker/defensive lineman Adam Anderson from Rome, GA announced his de-commitment from the Tigers.

Anderson, a four-star prospect, and the No. 1 overall outside linebacker for the class of 2018 announced his de-commitment via Twitter.

LSU now has 20 verbal commits for the class of 2018 with the departure of Anderson.

The key words in his post are “trying to build a relationship”

Rome GA is Alabama, Tennessee and UGA territory, maybe some Auburn and Clemson sprinkled in. If he had come to LSU that would have been a major recruiting coup.

True jdrn21. The point is this happens everywhere. Not just LSU. It's the world we live in.

What is the record for de-commits for a season per HC?

"Please respect my decision!!!" Not saying he's a whiny brat, but this sounds like a whiny brat. I'd honestly respect his decision a lot more if he didn't include this. Good luck to him.

Problem is, we're relegated and obligated to play the wishy washy underclassmen HS recruiting game. Not the kid's fault...Nature of the Beast.

And it won't change back to the old way. It will just evolve in the direction it's going as social media technology advances

No room for a 4 star anyway. We'll just keep that spot for another 3 star.

Hate to see him go....but honestly, he hasn't played his senior season yet so we don't really know his talent anyway.

"Please respect my decision!!!" Your decision would be much easier to respect if you had any respect for your own decision. You jumped the gun and made a commitment you had felt you needed to back out of, why should I think you actually gave this new decision much more thought? I know, this is a high schooler so we shouldn't expect too much maturity... While that's true he is at a good age to learn these life lessons. His parents and coach shouldn't be too hard on him but don't give him a free pass either.

There won't be room for him after the National Titles start this year.

Commitments and ranking classes this early based on commitments is hillarious. Hell, LSU was flipping kids a day or two before last signing day. It happens.

an 17-18 year old unsure of his decision. If I was a highly sought after recruit, I would not commit soo early either....good luck on his decision...reminds me of recruiting for the navy.

Perfect example of the flaws of the early committal process

And now early signing in December will be a thing as well

The "long talks" and "hours of thought" should go in to the process before committing. If you aren't completely ready to completely shut down the process, don't commit anywhere.
