LSU Recruits win titles on the track

Check out the results by LSU football recruits from the Outdoor Track & Field State Championships this past weekend.

Several LSU football recruits showed out on the track this past weekend at the State Championship meet.

LSU signee Donte Jackson had one of the best performances, sweeping both the 100- and 200-meter dashes. He won the 200 with a time of 21.26, six tenths of a second better than the next finisher. His 10.3-second time in the 100-meter missed the state record by only one-tenth of a second.

Check out the video below from Nola.com for Jackson's championship performance in the 100-meter.

Jackson wasn't the only LSU signee to take home hardware this weekend.

Wide receiver signee Jazz Ferguson finished second in the 3A Long Jump with a distance of 22 feet, 6.25 inches. Fellow WR signee Tyron Johnson and his relay-mates from Warren Easton finished third in the 4x100-meter with a time of 42.53 seconds.

LSU had several recruits from the 2016 class compete in the state meet this weekend.

Rummel's Kristian Fulton finished on the podium in three events. Considered one of the best cornerbacks in the country, Fulton won silver in both the Long Jump (23 feet, 8.75 inches) and 110-meter hurdles (14.17 seconds). Fulton also landed a bronze medal in the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 38.59 seconds.

Andraez Williams took home a state title as part of Calvary Baptist's 4x100-meter relay team. Alabama commit and LSU target Shyheim Carter placed first in the 1A 100-meter with a time of 10.91 seconds.

Taylor Fondal, a potential target for the offensive line, swept the 4A Shot Put (52 feet, 0.5 inches) and Discus (157 feet, 8 inches).

A name to remember in the 2017 class is Keldrick Carper from Plain Dealing. He's already landed several big offers for football, and figures to be one of the top athletes in the state for his grade. He doesn't have an LSU offer yet, but one could definitely come by the end of spring or after camp this summer.

He showed out on the track this weekend, taking home three medals. He finished first in the 1A Triple Jump (44 feet, 4 inches), second in the 110-meter hurdles (16.21 seconds) and third in the Long Jump (20 feet, 10.75 inches).
