METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

The screams of joy from Rummel fans, and the state could be heard loud and clear when Kristian Fulton announced he was playing at LSU this Fall. The five-star cornerback picked the Tigers over Arkansas and Florida. It was a decision that didn't get resolved until a few hours before noon.

"This morning was very long. I was wondering when the time was going to come. As I was coming to school I thought about it, and I thought about what was the best for me and my family. Because they helped me since I was five. I wouldn't be here without them. I had to do what was best for me, to put me in the best position to be successful," said Kristian Fulton.

Fulton's announcement helped LSU attain the number one recruiting class in the country according to ESPN. The 6-foot corner thinks this haul could rival the 2014 class that included Leonard Fournette and Malachi Dupre.

"It kind of resembles the 2014 recruiting class, but I think we're better. We've been talking a lot, they've been giving me advice. What to look for in a school, what not to. They haven't been pushing me to LSU. They wanted me there, but they wanted me to do what's best for me. I feel with this class, we can contribute and doing something special," said Fulton.

Fulton was asked if there was one current player or recruit that helped sway him to the Tigers. He said without a doubt, Jamal Pettigrew out of St. Augustine helped out in the process. They went on official visits together, and they talked every day.
