Two elite 2017 recruits expected to visit LSU

Two of the Tigers' top junior targets are expected to be in Death Valley this weekend.

The visitor list for LSU-Eastern Michigan probably won't blow anyone away, but two of LSU's top targets in 2017 are expected to be on it.

Marvin Wilson and K'Lavon Chaisson both plan to be in Baton Rouge this weekend, making the relatively short drive from the Houston area. Both are defensive linemen and some of the top prospects not only in Texas, but the country.

This would mark the second visit this season from Wilson. He attended the Auburn game as well and has already visited LSU multiple times in a short span. 

LSU offered him in May and worked him out at camp this summer. LSU defensive line coach Ed Orgeron fell in love with his game and has made a strong push, with assistance from regional recruiter Bradley Dale Peveto, to secure a top spot on Wilson's list.

Wilson has responded with nothing but positives, saying several times that LSU is already his leader. 

He's a four-star prospect ranked in the Top 20 nationally, regardless of position. He also holds offers from just about every major program in the country, including schools like Alabama, Texas A&M, USC and Michigan. 

But LSU seems to have an early leg up, and they'll be thrilled to have him back on campus.

LSU was the first school to identify Chaisson as a major prospect for the next level. The Tigers offered him this past summer, before he'd even played his first high school football game.

Chaisson has caught everyone else's attention since. He now holds offers Baylor, Texas A&M, Missouri and Nebraska, among others. But LSU has a big advantage here.

Chaisson is teammates with 2016 commit Eric Monroe, and that will definitely help the Tigers in his recruitment. LSU seems to have an early lead, and more time spent on campus should only help that.

Both Wilson and Chaisson are very realistic candidates to commit to LSU before their process ends.
