Fresh off a victory against Texas A&M, LSU landed a commitment from one of the top 2016 prospects in the country. For more on the new addition, check out this premium update.

Less than an hour after LSU's victory against Texas A&M on Saturday, the Tigers added a commitment from five-star DL Ed Alexander, one of the nation's top 2016 prospects.

Alexander marks the first commitment for LSU's 2016 class, and the Tigers now have pledges from players in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 classes.

Already 6-foot-2 and pushing 300 pounds, Alexander is one of the state's more promising prospects. He quickly emerged on LSU's radar this past summer at camp, and reeled in an offer earlier this week.

It didn't take long for him to put an end to his recruitment, making his commitment to the coaches after the 34-10 victory against the Aggies.
