Make it five.

Receiver Dee Anderson has been cleared by the NCAA and will enroll at LSU on Friday, his high school coach confirmed to The Advocate on Thursday.

Anderson, a 6-foot-3, 175-pounder, is ranked as the 25th-best wideout in the 2016 class and gives the Tigers five early enrollees in what’s shaping up to be a historic signing class. The Tigers’ current 21-commitment recruiting crew is ranked No. 1 nationally.

Anderson joins IMG Academy cornerback Saivion Smith, John Ehret linebacker Michael Divinity, Donaldsonville receiver Stephen Sullivan and North Webster linebacker/running back Devin White as early enrollees. Those four enrolled and began classes last week. They are cleared for spring practice, which is expected to start in early March.

Anderson hit a snag last week, though. He needed to complete an online course and then get clearance from the NCAA.

“We’re extremely excited and happy for Dee,” Peterman said Thursday. “He’s worked hard.”

Anderson’s snag regarded his transfer before his senior season from West Mesquite to DeSoto. Anderson was dismissed from West Mesquite’s football team and then a district committee ruled him ineligible to play his senior season at DeSoto.

Anderson, who needed to return to Texas for his exam last week, is expected to arrive at LSU Friday. The final day to add classes at LSU is Monday.
