LSU wide receiver Aaron Anderson is set to miss time this spring as he continues to work towards full strength following his knee injury, multiple sources tell The Bengal Tiger staff.

Anderson transferred to LSU from Alabama this offseason, leaving Tuscaloosa after just one year with the program. The New Orleans native and former Top 100 recruit was sidelined during his freshman season at Alabama with a knee injury.

Anderson participated in workouts with the LSU team after arriving in January, but has since had a minor procedure to ensure his knee is at full strength for the 2023 season, sources tell The Bengal Tiger staff. Anderson first shared the news that he would miss time during a social media video on Instagram.

While Anderson is expected to be sidelined for the start of spring practices in March, sources maintained the redshirt freshman is on track to be ready for fall camp and his debut season in Baton Rouge this fall.

Anderson played high school football for Edna Karr High School in New Orleans, where he was a four-star prospect. He ranked as the No. 36 overall player and No. 4 receiver in the class according to the On3 Industry rankings.

Anderson joins a wide receiver room that returns five players from the 2022 roster in Malik Nabers, Brian Thomas Jr., Kyren Lacy, Chris Hilton and Landon Ibieta. The Tigers also signed four wide receivers in Jalen Brown, Shelton Sampson Jr., Kyle Parker and Khai Prean. Both Brown and Parker are on campus as early-enrollees and will be part of spring practices next month.
