Add another name to LSU’s impressive recruiting class for the 2019 cycle as linebacker Kendall McCallum announced his commitment to the Tigers on Monday in a video produced by 247Sports.

The Oxford, Ala., native is rated as a three-star prospect, the No. 25 inside linebacker and the No. 725 overall prospect in the nation by 247Sports Composite Ratings. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound McCallum currently holds scholarship offers from Ole Miss, Missouri, Louisville, Memphis and Southern Miss among others.

Following this pledge, the Tigers now hold commitments from 18 prospects for the 2019 recruiting cycle and further lock down their No. 3 recruiting class for the current cycle. Only Alabama and Texas A&M have higher rated recruiting classes at this time.
