LSU Football Recruiting Update: Tigers Take Back No. 1 Class

    LSU football recruiting update, as the Tigers took back the No. 1 class ranking with National Signing Day approaching.

    LSU football recruiting update, as the Tigers took back the No. 1 class ranking after a 5-star commitment. 

    Les Miles is putting his recruiting prowess on display with National Signing Day quickly approaching.

    On Thursday, LSU received a commitment from 4-star offensive tackle Willie Allen, the No. 16 offensive tackle in the nation, but that was just another notch in Miles’ belt.

    The Tigers really turned heads on Friday morning when 5-star defensive tackle Rashard Lawrence chose LSU over Ohio State. Lawrence is the No. 5 defensive tackle and No. 23 overall recruit in the 2016 cycle. 

    And what a coincidence that was. Even with the addition of Allen earlier in the week, the Buckeyes still remained ahead of the Tigers in the class rankings. Yeah, that didn’t last long. Lawrence’s commitment catapulted LSU back into the No. 1 spot of the 247Sports Composite team rankings.

    With less than two weeks left until National Signing Day, Miles is in position to solidify his hold on the 2016 recruiting cycle. Below is an overview of the Tigers’ No. 1 class.
