The LSU coaches will get a much needed break from the recruiting grind as a dead period goes into effect starting Monday, June 30, lasting through July 13.
A dead period restricts college coaches from having any in-person contact with prospective student athletes, meaning recruits may not take visits to campuses during this time. Coaches are still allowed though to make telephone calls with recruits and their legal guardians.
The Class of 2015 has already had its fair share of excitement for LSU. The Tigers' class currently sits at 12 commits, which ranks ninth in the country. Premium subscribers can check out the complete LSU Big Board, which lists every offer handed out by the Tigers, by clicking the link below.
