- SEC TEAM RANK: No. 2
- NATIONAL TEAM RANK: No. 2
- LAST YEAR’S FINISH: No. 3 (SEC); No. 6 (nation).
- NO. 1 CURRENT RECRUIT: RB Leonard Fournette (No. 1 in nation)
- SDS ‘SLEEPER’ STAR: D.J. Chark is an in-state WR who has been a bit overshadowed by some of the other WRs in LSU’s class, but he’s a mature kid with a ton of talent. And WR Trey Quinn is hardly a sleeper, but he’s a quality player and quality kid in general.
- SUM THE DAY UP: One could argue that nobody in the SEC, if not the country, had a better day than LSU. First of all, it kept Davon Godchaux with the class, and then added four good commitments on the day—including five-star WR Malachi Dupre. The Tigers were as busy as any program in the SEC on Wednesday.
- OVERALL: It looks like the Tigers will finish as the national team runner up behind Alabama, and that’s impressive. They closed well, picked up the nation’s No. 1 player in Leonard Fournette, and generally hauled in a group that would make any coach in the nation proud. The Tigers were winners this recruiting cycle, no doubt.
