LSU added another ESPN 300 member to its 2013 class on Friday afternoon -- this time at the expense of Alabama.
Offensive guard Andy Dodd (Lindale, Ga./Pepperell), rated as the No. 169 player in the nation, switched his commitment from Alabama to LSU while on a visit to Baton Rouge, he confirmed Friday. The four-star's pledge gives the Tigers 21 commits for 2013 and their fourth offensive lineman in this class. The news caps off a busy week for LSU, as the Tigers have now added two 2013 commitments and two 2014 commitments since Saturday.
The loss of Dodd, coupled with the recent loss of No. 2 overall prospect Reuben Foster (Auburn, Ala./Auburn) to Auburn, drops Alabama's class total to 16.
