LSU’s spring game on April 16 will undoubtedly be one of the team’s most critical recruiting weekends, but count April 2 equally as important.
One of the Tigers’ top safety targets, Grant Delpit, is scheduled to take in the team’s spring practice session that Saturday, he told SEC Country.
The nation’s No. 18 safety, Delpit was on the LSU campus for Junior Day in late February, and also made stops at Texas A&M and Baylor’s scrimmage last weekend.
However, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound nationally acclaimed prospect does need to continue to do some research in person.
“There’s nothing specific I want to see,” Delpit told SEC Country, “but I do just want to see where I would fit in if I went there.”
The four-star prospect out of Houston will bring along his mother and father, as well as other members of his family.
LSU may hold a unique edge in the race for Delpit, given that his family hails from New Orleans.
The Delpits were displaced by Hurricane Katrina when Grant was 6 years old. The family, then residing in Eastern New Orleans, relocated to Houston in the wake of the storm but still has relatives in the state and area.
Now the family will get to take in LSU’s campus and facilities firsthand.
“Yeah, I think with any college it’s important for them to get a feel of where I’ll be for the next four years,” Delpit said.
