Battle commits to LSU

2014 DB John Battle became the 12th commitment of LSU's 2014 class after making his pledge to the Tigers on Friday.

2014 DB John Battle announced his commitment to LSU on Friday, becoming the 12th member of the Tigers' 2014 class.

Battle is the second prospect to commit to LSU this week after DE Deondre Clark made his decision official on Monday. Battle becomes the fourth DB taken in this class, joining Chris Hardeman, Edward Paris and Devin Voorhies.

The staff likes Battle as a hybrid safety, a ballhawking prospect that can also drop down and cover an inside receiver. Battle had been high on LSU for quite some time, and his visit to Baton Rouge earlier this month solidified that.

LSU DB coach Corey Raymond continues to reel in the Florida prospects as Battle is the second from the Sunshine State to join this class.

Battle is rated as a three-star prospect and the No. 60 safety in the country.
