Signing Day Capsule: Garrett Brumfield

LSU has received a National Letter of Intent from OG Garrett Brumfield. The four-star prospect is officially a Tiger.

Attending school and playing his prep ball at U-High, on the campus of LSU, Garrett Brumfield was always on the Tigers' radar, even if LSU wasn't the first to offer the four-star offensive lineman. That distinction belongs to Louisiana Tech, which extended an offer to Brumfield in May 2012. Only a month later Florida and Miami joined the party after Brumfield camped with each program, sending scholarship opportunities his way.

The hometown school made its move in July 2012, bringing Brumfield in for its annual OL/DL camp. At the end of the one-day camp, then-quarterbacks coach Steve Kragthorpe set a time for the rising junior to return to LSU's campus a few days later for an unofficial visit. It was at that point the Tigers offered Brumfield, high school teammates with Les Miles' and Kragthorpe's sons.

Brumfield ultimately committed to the Tigers on April 20, 2013. He also sparked a string of commitments from U-High underclassmen, as 2015 RB Nicholas Brossette and 2017 RB/LB Dylan Moses committed to LSU in the months following. Brumfield remained firm in his commitment, although he did tab Florida, Florida State and Texas A&M as the biggest competitors to LSU during his recruiting process. He took his official visit to LSU on Jan. 17, 2014, getting the opportunity to meet new OL coach Jeff Grimes.

The Under Armour All-American is rated as the No. 13 OG in America. Brumfield has the versatility to play inside or out on the line, but his future is at guard. That's where the UA coaches slotted him during the week of practice and game, and that's where the Tiger coaches have informed Brumfield that he'll play. He's got great size and possesses nice agility for a player with his frame. Brumfield will have an opportunity to crack the two-deep as a true freshman with a vacated starting right guard position.
