Wednesday Recruiting Tidbits

TSD has all the latest LSU recruiting information, including plenty of video on the Tigers' newest commit, news on a pair of major defensive linemen that have set official visits, and the latest on five-star WR D'haquille Williams, who's set to sign his Letter of Intent on Wednesday.

LSU landed a major piece to its 2014 class on Tuesday when No. 1 MLB Clifton Garrett announcement his commitment to the Tigers. Scout's Beth Long was live at Planfield South for coverage of the ceremony.

You can relive the moment Garrett made his decision official by watching the video below.

Scout was able to get a one-on-one interview with Garrett after the announcement, as he discusses why he chose the Tigers. On everything from where he fits in the defense to when he knew it would be LSU, get all the latest in this video interview with the five-star prospect.


LSU isn't letting up in its quest to sign some quality defensive linemen. The Tigers have already set up an official visit with four-star Miami commit Travonte Valentine. Now there are two more that have set their trips to Baton Rouge.

Lorenzo Carter, the nation's No. 1 DE, will make his visit on Jan. 17, the first weekend after the dead period. LSU has been working him for quite some time to come on a visit, and defensive line coach Brick Haley secured the trip during an in-home visit last week.

The Tigers still have a lot of work to do to catch up with the home-state Georgia Bulldogs, but getting Carter on a visit will a long way in closing up that gap. For more on Carter's recruitment, head to the TSD Message Board.

LSU has also locked in an official visit with versatile lineman Malik McDowell. The four-star prospect from Michigan will head to Baton Rouge on Jan. 24.

McDowell's already taken visits to Alabama and Flordia, and also has trips scheduled to Florida State (Jan. 17) and Ohio State (Jan. 31). For more on McDowell, click the link below.

No. 1 JUCO WR D'haquille Williams has created some chatter in the last couple days by setting a formal announcement for his college decision on Wednesday, the first day JUCO prospects can sign Letters of Intent.

Williams has been committed to Auburn since the summer, but this latest news has led some to think LSU has possibly entered the picture. Williams was once committed to LSU before flipping to Auburn, and there was some rumblings that he would take an official visit to Baton Rouge before signing.

According to a LSU source, the Tigers are no longer recruiting Williams, content with the group of high school receivers that they are targeting. All signs now point to Williams signing with Auburn on Wednesday.
