Prior to the start of fall camp, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron announced senior WR Dee Anderson was suspended indefinitely. In a post-practice media session on Thursday, Orgeron announced Anderson will now miss the entire year.

"Dee Anderson is suspended from the football team for the year,” Orgeron said on Thursday.

Seeing as Anderson's a senior, he has a few options. His first option would be take a redshirt year and play for LSU next season.

Another option would be to once again use a redshirt year and be a graduate transfer for the 2020 season. His last option is testing the waters in the 2020 NFL Draft — given his frame and potential, he could garner interest.

According to his latest tweet, it appears Anderson is still thinking through his options.

The 6-foot-5 receiver came to LSU as apart of the 2016 recruiting class. He ranked as the 37th best receiver prospect in the class.

In three seasons with the Tigers, Anderson had 27 catches for 392 yards and one touchdown. His most productive year came as a junior. Anderson had 20 receptions for 274 yards and a touchdown in 2018.

He was expected to have a breakout year in 2019, but this suspension puts those plans on hold for now.
