LSU offers two out-of-state four-stars

LSU's all in on the 2016 class, and the Tigers are willing to cast a wide net for players on both sides of the line. Here's the info on LSU's two most recent offers

LSU has handed out a pair of new offers within the last 24 hours to big men on either side of the ball. We take a closer look at both four-star recruits.

DT Antwuan Jackson | Ellenwood, Ga.


LSU has spent a lot of time already in the 2016 class targeting defensive tackles. Louisiana is absolutely loaded with DTs, but Ed Orgeron expanded outside his borders Monday night to extend an offer to Antwuwan Jackson. He ranks No. 14 nationally at his position and is the No. 125 overall prospect int he country. His older brother, Bryson Allen-Williams, signed with South Carolina in the 2014 class. Now it's his turn to take the spotlight in recruiting.

The two schools he's visited most are South Carolina and Auburn, though he claims to be wide open with his decision. LSU's just the latest SEC school to come offering Jackson, as the four-star already has offers from most of the major programs in the region.

At 6-foot-3 and about 260 pounds, Jackson plays all over the line for his high school team. He could potentially play either end or tackle on the next level, and that versatility is something LSU likes. Jackson has good feet, is very strong and uses his big arms well to shed blockers. He'll be highly coveted for all SEC teams in this 2016 class.



OT Clark Yarbrough | Woodberry Forest, Va.


Jeff Grimes returns again to his old stomping grounds to recruit an offensive tackle. The former Virginia Tech assistant heavily recruited 2015 OT Matthew Burrell, who eventually signed with Ohio State, and now Grimes has targeted another Virginia native. Four-star OT Clark Yarbrough reported an LSU offer Tuesday morning, as the Tigers look to continue stockpiling big men for the front line.

Yarbrough played both guard and tackle in his junior season, but probably projects as a tackle at 6-foot-6, 270 pounds. Yarbrough moves extremely well for his size, often getting way out in front of the play and pancaking defenders with authority. He plays with an edge, and LSU has to love the aggression he brings to his blocks.

The legitimate contenders for Yarbrough should emerge this spring once he's able to get out and take visits. The Tigers will work to get him to campus as soon as possible. Yarbrough is a Virginia legacy, so many peg the Hoos as the team to beat. Yarbrough's still racking up a ton of offers from schools in the ACC and SEC though, so there should be plenty of competition for his services.
