Five-star cornerback Fulton commits to LSU

METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - LSU landed the biggest local recruit today when Rummel cornerback Kristian Fulton committed to the Tigers.

Fulton is rated as a five-star recruit by 247 sports. The 6-foot, 170-pound corner chose LSU over Arkansas and Florida. 247 also rates Fulton as the best cornerback in the state, and second-best in the country.

Many alumni and current LSU players consider the Tigers "DBU". Fulton will join a long line of great corners from LSU that include: Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, and Morris Claiborne to name a few.

Fulton made his announcement in a packed gym on the campus of Rummel.
