Barksdale says it's LSU!
Les Miles and his staff went into the heart of Big 10 country and landed one of the nation's premiere defensive tackles in the country when Joseph Barksdale announced his commitment moments ago on NBC. The 6-6, 310-pounder from Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech selected the Tigers over Michigan State and Ohio State along with a slew of other schools. Barksdale will enroll at LSU in January and will be able to take part in spring ball with the Tigers. Tiger Rag will have much more on this story later so be sure to check back and see why the nation's No. 12 rated defensive tackle headed down South to Bayou Country.
