LSU Football Recruiting Confidence Levels

TSD unveils its monthly confidence levels for LSU football, an in-depth examination of the Tigers' chances at landing their top targets in the Class of 2015

The TSD Confidence Levels are back after the final home game of LSU's football schedule. We'll run this piece each month all the way to National Signing Day.

Using a 1-10 scale, 10 being the highest, TSD’s Hunter Paniagua will clue you in with his feelings on each prospect's recruitment.

These numbers aren't just coming out of thin air either. Based on rumblings we've gotten from both the players and LSU staff, these confidence levels should reflect how the Tigers feel at this point.

The confidence levels themselves are free, but the explanation behind them are only for premium members. Sign up for an account with TSD get all the latest scoop and rumblings behind the recruitments of these top prospects.

Not all of LSU’s remaining targets are included in this batch of confidence levels. There are still several recruits that have visited LSU recently or plan to visit soon, but we aren’t quite ready to assign them a value. We’ll keep a close eye on these names through the fall to gauge how legitimate their interest is in LSU: Cordell Broadus, Jalen Merrick, Zach Robertsno, Emanuel McGirt, Devonaire ClaringtonPorter Gustin, Darius Slayton, Garrett Taylor, Iman Marshall, Justin Martin.


LSU has been working hard to flip prospects committed elsewhere. Aside from the three mentioned above, we don’t typically assign confidence levels to these potential flips. But we will be keeping a close eye on these recruits to gauge their interest in LSU: Arden Key, Rasool Clemons, Dylan Jackson, Daylon Mack, Leo Lewis, Sh'mar Kilby-Lane.
