Grant Delpit has been climbing up national rankings and consistently receiving new offers.
With so much change, a familiar face stopped by on Tuesday afternoon.
LSU’s Texas area recruiter Bradley Dale Peveto came through Lamar High School (Houston) to check in on the prized Tigers safety target to take in 7-on-7 practice.
“It just feels like I’m their top priority,” Delpit told SEC Country.
Delpit is one of LSU’s major defensive back targets, and one of the top candidates to potentially succeed Jamal Adams in the Tigers’ secondary.
The four-star prospect named LSU his leading school after visiting Baton Rouge, La., in early April.
However, Delpit has been garnering attention from college football programs across the country this spring, hauling in offers from SEC rivals such as Alabama and Florida, as well as national powerhouses like Southern California, Notre Dame and, most recently, Clemson on Tuesday afternoon.
Those four schools all cracked Delpit’s top 10 list, which he released on Saturday. The Tigers, of course, made the cut as well.
That was on Peveto’s radar, and the LSU coach conveyed as much to Delpit’s high school.
“He’s recruiting me hard,” Delpit said, “and it’s understood between us how important I am to them (LSU).”
Even after Delpit named LSU his leader, it’s clear the Tigers will have their work cut out for them as they try to hold onto that stance going into the summer with the newly minted No. 12 safety in the country.
The elite Texas prospect has already made trips to The Swamp and to Southern California, in between visits to both TCU and Baylor, and multiple stops in Baton Rouge, La.
One edge LSU will always hold onto in this race is the fact that Delpit hails from New Orleans. He was displaced by Hurricane Katrina when he was 6 years old, and still has family throughout Louisiana.
