In updated Rivals 100, LSU has highest-rated SEC commit
The 247Sports Composite provides the recruiting rankings for many media outlets (including SDS), but Rivals rankings (part of the Composite formula) still carry weight. When a Rivals 5-star commits to a school, it’s still a huge deal.
Rivals shared its updated recruiting rankings, including the Rivals 100 for the class of 2020, on Tuesday. In the SEC, the top committed prospect is LSU pledge Elias Ricks, No. 5 on the Rivals 100. For those wondering, players rated Nos 1 and 2 are both committed to Clemson while Nos. 3 and 4 are uncommitted.
The 5-star cornerback committed to the Tigers last Christmas. In July, Ricks transferred from Mater Dei in California to the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. Rivals rates him as the No. 1 cornerback in the 2020 class and the No. 3 player in the state. He has 31 scholarship offers, including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
