Bo Bordelon commits to LSU

January 31, 2021

It's a stellar weekend for LSU in regards to class of 2022 offensive linemen as New Orleans (La.) Newman tackle Bo Bordelon‍  gave Ed Orgeron his verbal commitment on Sunday.

Bordelon joins Will Campbell‍ of Monroe (La.) Neville as offensive tackle commitments who gave Ed Orgeron their pledge this weekend.

“I’m pumped up, I really couldn’t see myself playing any other uniform besides LSU,” Bordelon told “I’ve been going to those games my whole life and it’s always been my dream to play there one day.

“I facetime’d Ed Orgeron and then I called Coach Cregg,” Bordelon said. “Coach O was actually in a boxing ring when I called him.”

Orgeron has been doing boxing workouts with a local trainer for over a year as a great way to stay in-shape.

Bordelon committed to LSU over Colorado, Virginia and many others.  His offer from Ed Orgeron arrived last week.

“He was all pumped up, he was yelling Go Tigers,” Bordelon said.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Bordelon is the son of former LSU lineman Ben Bordelon who played for LSU in the early 90’s.

Bordelon’s commitment gives LSU three offensive linemen for the class of 2022 and a total of nine.  Lucas Taylor‍ of Mobile (Ala.) St. Paul’s was LSU’s first offensive line commit for the class.

“I knew i was going to do this (commit) for a week or two now, then I called Wil (Campbell) and asked if he wanted to commit together and he said sure, let's go back-to-back,” Bordelon said. “I’m excited, we’ve got a good group of dudes going there and I think we have a good chance of winning a national championship.”

When asked if they were now working on Baton Rouge (La.) Catholic offensive lineman Emery Jones‍ to join them at LSU, Bordelon replied, “Yep, we are blowing his phone up right now”.
