3-Star RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire Re-Opens Recruitment


Three-star running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire has re-opened his recruitment but still remains committed to the LSU Tigers. 


The nation’s No. 30-ranked running back appears to be wavering on his commitment — at least slightly.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been committed to LSU since February, but he may be looking to switch that pledge over to a different team soon.

The Baton Rouge native released a statement explaining how he still remains committed to the Tigers, but he will no longer block other teams from recruiting him.

“This has definitely been one of the most exciting times in my life. I am truly blessed and thankful to God for all of his favors he has bestowed on me. After spending time with my family during the holidays, talking and discussing my future plans, I have decided to re-open my recruitment to explore all of my options. I have been fully committed to LSU throughout the entire recruiting process. I should feel like a priority with a school. However, my family and I must make the ‘best’ decision for my future. I have to be compatible and fit into the program’s offense and their vision. This will allow me to be placed in the best position to display my talents and capabilities.”

At 5-foot-8, 190 lbs Edwards-Helaire has one-cut ability and can pick up big chunks of yards in a hurry. He has great hands and serves as a reliable receiving threat out of the backfield. He’s also a threat to line up in the slot.

Edwards-Helaire holds additional offers from Cal, Mississippi State and Oklahoma, among others.
