LSU jumps to #1 in recruiting ranks

LSU jumps to #1 in recruiting ranks

(WVUE) - LSU's red-hot run in recruiting the last two days has the Tigers #1 in many rankings.

Thursday LSU picked up a commitment from John Curtis offensive lineman Willie Allen. The four-star recruit is 6'7", 300 pounds. Today in Monroe, LSU received another verbal from Rashard Lawrence, a five-star recruit from Neville. Lawrence picked LSU over Ohio State.

Going into Friday morning, LSU trailed Ohio State in all four recruiting services: 247, ESPN, Rivals, and Scout. Three of those four rankings jumped LSU to #1 after the Lawrence commitment. Rivals still has the Tigers in the second spot, but the numbers are close.

National Signing Day is Feb. 3.
