LSU's unprecedented run of recruiting success has given the Tigers the No. 1 recruiting class in the country.
The Tigers have landed seven commits within the last three weeks, the two most recent coming from OLB/DE Erick Fowler and Rahssan Thornton. Those last two pledges helped push LSU past Ohio State for the current top spot in the national team rankings.
Andraez Williams committed and set off the recent surge of commitments that has also included — Glen Logan, Caleb Roddy, Andre Anthony, Jakori Savage, Fowler and Thornton. Three of those seven prospects rank within the Top 300 overall recruits nationally.
LSU not only leads the country in the total number of points used to rank teams' recruiting classes. The Tigers are also No. 1 in stars-per-commit at 3.88. LSU is the only school in the country with two five-stars committed — Ed Alexander and Saivion Smith — and LSU is also tied with the second-most four-star commits (10).
LSU has five commits ranked within the Top 100 nationally, also tied for second most.
The class should only get stronger from here. There are still eight recruits in Louisiana with LSU offers ranked in the Top 300 nationally, and several other out-of-state recruits heavily favoring the Tigers.
That highly regarded Class of 2014 had a lot of starpower but still finished No. 2 behind Alabama. Perhaps 2016 is the year LSU can take the top spot for the first time since Scout began ranking classes in 2002.
