4-star recruits Stephen Sullivan, Willie Allen planning to attend LSU's game against Auburn

Two of the state's top uncommitted recruits plan to attend LSU's game against Auburn

LSU's battle with Auburn on Saturday will attract a long list of prospects, and two of the state's best — Stephen Sullivan and Willie Allen — plan to attend.

Allen (pictured above) is the highest rated offensive lineman in Louisiana and one of the Tigers' top tackle targets in the entire 2016 class. He's made numerous visits to LSU in the past, and he most recently spent a day on campus during July camp.

Allen and his John Curtis team play at Parkview Baptist on Friday, so he might stay in Baton Rouge overnight and get to LSU's campus early Saturday before the coaches are too entangled with pregame preparations.

Allen is also seriously considering Auburn. These are two schools that expect to receive an official visit from him. He's also interested in Ole Miss, Georgia and Alabama among others.

Allen doesn't plan to make a commitment anywhere until after his senior season. Curtis doesn't allow its players to take official visits during the season, so his decision will likely come down to National Signing Day.

Sullivan is one of the best wide receivers in the country and was a long-time LSU commit until he dropped that pledge a last month.

This would be his first time back on LSU's campus since he decommitted on Aug. 16. He spent some time at LSU during camp in July but decommitted a couple weeks later.

TCU is considered the biggest threat to LSU in landing Sullivan. He used to live in the Dallas-area and still has family there. 

Sullivan is also interested in Auburn though and visited them a couple times early in the recruiting process. Auburn is hoping to get him on campus for an official visit before he shuts things down again.

For LSU though, this weekend will be a great opportunity to show off Tiger Stadium on an SEC gameday. The LSU coaches and recruiting staff will be showing plenty of attention to both Sullivan and Allen should they make it for the game.
