Brian Kelly is the first big fish from the NCAA Transfer Portal. Aaron Anderson, a former 5-star wide receiver, announced Sunday evening that he will be joining LSU ,, giving this receiving corps another lethal weapon in the future.

The Alabama transfer didn’t record any stats during his first season with the Crimson Tide, after sustaining an injury in the early part of the season.

A former Edna Karr standout, Anderson was rated as a Top-50 prospect in the 2022 class. The Louisiana legend was a Top-5 wide receiver in the country and took the nation by storm during his senior season.

Anderson can also be used as a return specialist, which is a position LSU struggled with last season. Kelly and this program are as versatile as they come. They will be a major player in the future.

Brian Kelly’s Transfer Portal Message:

“They have got to be the right fit first,” Kelly said. They must recognize the value of an LSU education. They must possess the right traits. We are more than open for business. We don’t just put up a sign saying “hey, we will take anyone”. They must be the right fit. If they can be found, I prefer that they come from Louisiana. Then we will address the needs based on how this freshman class relates to it, and then by the specific needs of each position class.

“We are not going overburden a particular position group. This means that if you have three or four wide receivers who are freshmen, you might not see a lot of influence in that position.

” We will also be developing based on our freshman class. This allows us to do both the same thing, but also allows our program to be more youthful. Both of these are important to us. We don’t always want to be a turn-it-over program where we are bringing in transfers and turning the program over.”
