Did LSU find its quarterback for the 2016 class?

BY foxsports • January 11, 2016

Since Feleipe Franks decided to opt for Florida and drop his commitment to LSU, there's no question Les Miles has been on the hunt for a 2016 quarterback prospect. 

On Monday, one may have fallen into his lap. 

Anthony Russo -- a longtime commitment to Rutgers -- announced his decommitment on Twitter. With new head coach Chris Ash potentially looking to implement a spread, uptempo offensive scheme, it doesn't necessarily fit with Russo's skill-set as a passer. 

A big and strong pocket-passer, Russo's at his best when he can plant his feet and fire the ball downfield. One would think this style of play would fit well with LSU's ground-and-pound offense.

Should LSU get the Pennsylvania native in for a visit, it could go a long way in potentially earning a commitment.
