2017 4-star ATH JaCoby Stevens from Tennessee commits to LSU

LSU landed a commitment Wednesday from 2017 4-star JaCoby Stevens

LSU reeled in a commitment Wednesday from 2017 four-star Jacoby Stevens from Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Stevens is ranked by Scout as the No. 181 overall prospect in the 2017 class. He's ranked as a wide receiver, No. 25 nationally at his position, but LSU accepted his commitment as an athlete, and he will likely play safety for the Tigers. 

Stevens is the No. 7 overall prospect in the state of Tennessee. 

He's listed at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds.

Stevens landed an offer from LSU in the Spring of 2014, after his freshman season. Stevens lives in Tennessee, but with family in Louisiana, he's made numerous visits throughout his life to the state. His last trip to Baton Rouge came this past summer.

He grew up rooting for LSU, and the Tigers have always been one of the top schools in his recruitment. Stevens made it official by committing on Wednesday.

LSU defensive coordinator Kevin Steele was Stevens' lead recruiter, and player personnel director Austin Thomas played a big part thanks to his ties to Tennessee. 

Stevens becomes LSU's second commit in the 2017 class, joining four-star defensive tackle Tyler Shelvin. LSU lost a commitment over the summer from Dylan Moses, the nation's No. 1 player in 2017.
