LSU picked up a commitment from arguably the top player in the class of 2025 in consensus five-star QB Bryce Underwood out of Belleville, MI on Saturday. Underwood ranks as the No. 1 overall prospect in the 2025 class according to the 247 composite.

Underwood chose LSU over in-state Michigan (Alabama was also involved).

Underwood is ranked as a five-star on every major recruiting service, and is the near unanimous No. 1 player in the class of 2025. Rivals has him at No. 2, but every other service (including the 247 composite) have him at No. 1.

5-star QB Bryce Underwood commits to LSU

The 6'3, 210 pound QB had a stellar Junior season this past year, while leading Belleville to a state runner-up finish. He had a 66.7% completion percentage, 3,165 passing yards, 40 passing TD's, 7 rushing TD's, and just 2 INT's on the year. He was also the MaxPreps National Sophomore of the Year in 2022 as he had 2,762 passing yards and 37 TD's while leading Belleville to a state title. Not to mention that, he was also the MaxPreps National Freshman of the Year in 2021 after putting up 2,888 passing yards, 39 passing TD's, 6 rushing TD's, and 4 INT's.

LSU now pairs Underwood with a pair of other five-star offensive weapons in both the No. 1 WR (Dakorien Moore) and the No. 1 RB (Harlem Berry) in the class. Moore ranks as the No. 4 overall player in the class, and Berry ranks No. 16.

It'll be interesting to see how soon Underwood sees the field after he gets on campus next year. Garrett Nussmeier (entering Redshirt Junior season) and AJ Swann (entering Junior season) will be battling it out for the starting job this year, and it's unclear if whoever wins the job will still be around for the 2025 season or will have gone pro. LSU took one QB in the class of 2024 in four-star Colin Hurley.

With Underwood's current rating (.9999), he would be the highest rated signee in LSU history.
