The search goes on.
LSU’s quest to land a quarterback in its 2016 recruiting class continues after three-star Pennsylvania quarterback Anthony Russo committed to Temple late on Friday evening, according to OwlScoop.com’s Kyle Gauss.
LSU coaches visited Russo on Friday, but did not extend an offer, according to 247Sports’ Shea Dixon.
That was seemingly the deciding factor in all of this.
Russo reopened his recruitment earlier in the week when he de-committed from Rutgers. The Archbishop Wood (Warminster, Penn.) product was reportedly contemplating an official visit to LSU sometime this month.
That is obviously not the case.
The 6-foot-4, 221-pound signal caller is the nation’s No. 25 pro-style quarterback. More importantly, he was LSU’s Plan B if the Tigers could not lure Dwayne Haskins away from a commitment to Maryland.
However, Russo’s commitment to Temple comes on the same day that Haskins scheduled an official visit to Baton Rouge, La. for Jan. 22.
With Russo off the board, again, the pressure continues to mount on LSU to land a commitment from Haskins.
Clearly, the Tigers’ options are running thin.
