LSU commit says Death Valley is “home away from home”
NEW ORLEANS — If there was any doubt about Andre Anthony’s commitment to LSU, a trip to Death Valley over the weekend certainly put it to rest.
Anthony, the No. 23 prospect in Louisiana and second-rated defensive end, was on hand at Tiger Stadium on an unofficial visit for LSU’s 48-20 victory over Western Kentucky. The atmosphere was unlike any other, he said.
“Despite the rain, just being there, the atmosphere and watching the players ball out and knowing I’ll be there playing with them soon,” Anthony said. “It always feel likes home when I’m there. It’s my home away from home.
“Watching my Louisiana brother Tyron Johnson catch his first touchdown and watching Leonard (Fournette) and watching that whole LSU defense.”
“They’re all like father-to-son type of conversations,” Anthony said. “They were showing a lot of concern about how I’m doing on and off the field, and making sure I’m good and ready to come up there to LSU, and gave me some advice.”
The 3-star prospect holds offers Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Vanderbilt, among many others.
However, Anthony told SEC Country he remains 100-percent committed to LSU.
