Culp ranks as one of the top five kickers in the country, according to national kicking instructor Chris Sailer. Culp will also be on full athletic scholarship, according to Sailer.
Culp kicked at LSU earlier this summer during the Tigers' special teams camp. Sailer ranks him No. 4 in the country.
Culp, who comes from Pheonix, Ariz., is a member of the 2016 recruiting class.
"Connor is an unbelievable kicking talent," Sailer said in his review of Culp. "A great athlete with one of the very strongest legs in the nation. Smooth and extremely consistent on field goals. A great competitor who does extremely well under pressure. Kickoffs are D1 ready right now. The sky is the limit here. Connor is going to dominate at the D1 level. A fine young man with a great attitude and work ethic."
The last kicker LSU signed on scholarship was Cameron Gamble in the 2014 class. He spent some time on kickoff duties as a true freshman. LSU also added Baton Rouge native Jack Gonsoulin as a walk-on in 2015.
