LSU hosted one of the best rising juniors in the country for a visit Thursday.
Four-star safety Jeffrey Okudah, ranked No. 1 nationally at his position, came down to Baton Rouge to see what the Tigers have to offer. He was accompanied by 2016 four-star corner Eric Cuffee.
The two recruits are taking a tour through the South, and LSU was their first stop. They'll also see Florida State, Georgia and Auburn before heading home.
Okudah is already considered one of the best players in the country for his class. He's the No. 24 overall recruit and the third highest ranked prospect in Texas.
LSU extended him an offer in early March. Okudah is a tremendous athlete that could potentially land at multiple positions.
"I really like Okudah's game because he's a very good all-around football player," said Scout recruiting analyst Greg Powers. "[His high school] has lined him up in a number of different positions and he has played passionately at all of them. He will likely project out as a jumbo safety, but one who can also come down into the box as a hybrid speed backer."
Okudah has offers from most of the major players in college football. He'll have his pick when it reaches decision time, but he should be one of the heaviest recruited players in the 2017 class.
Cuffee does not have an offer from LSU. The Tigers' board at cornerback is already really tight, and they're in good shape to land the top guys left on their board.
