This will mark the second visit to Baton Rouge for the nation's No. 6 OLB. McCulloch attended the Tigers' Junior Day in early March after receiving an LSU offer in January.

LSU needs linebackers badly in 2016 after not signing one in the previous class. McCulloch, a Houston native, appears to be one of the Tigers' top targets outside the state. McCulloch spoke highly of his previous LSU visit, and the Tigers can build serious momentum with a successful followup.
McCulloch has regularly mentioned LSU among the lead group in his recruitment. He also includes schools like Texas, Texas A&M and Alabama near the top of his list.
It would be a big coup for the Tigers to steal the best outside linebacker in the state of Texas for this class. LSU pulled off a similar feat in 2014, landing the No. 1 safety in Jamal Adams.
McCulloch earned an invite to The Opening last month at the Dallas regional. He hasn't laid out a definitive timeframe for when he'd like to decide, though he has recently said a summer commitment is possible.
McCulloch won't be the only big-time linebacker from outside Louisiana in Tiger Stadium on April 18. Five-star Keion Joyner, the nation's No. 1 OLB, plans to be in attendance as well.
There will be several more major additions to that spring game visitor list over the next week, so stick with TSD for full coverage of that.
