LSU Adds Commitments #17 & 18; Lamahieu Signs


Shaw HS OL Elliott Porter committed to LSU over the weekend. Porter was recruited by most schools as a defensive tackle but will play offensive guard for LSU. Porter's commitment could very well mean that LSU is done on the offensive line for this recruiting class.

West Monroe defensive end Jordan Allen (pictured) also committed to LSU this weekend. Allen is very highly regarded. He also held offers from Georgia, Alabama, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Auburn, and many others. Allen is 6'6" 250 pounds and very quick off the edge. With his height, some speculate that he may make a good offensive tackle. However, he perfectly fits the mold of a big defensive end that has been so successful at LSU. Marcus Spears, Marquise Hill, and Tyson Jackson are all similar players along with Mike Brockers who will be a freshman this fall.

It has also been confirmed by multiple sites that Texas running back Lache Seastrunk was on LSU's campus.

Several sites have also reported that Jarrett Fobbs is in town and really enjoying himself. Could that lead to Fobbs reconsidering his commitment to Texas A&M?

This puts LSU at 18 commitments for this class, and we may see more before this week is up.


DJ Lamahieu signed a pro contract with the Chicago Cubs and won't be returning to LSU next year. Lamahieu was a second round pick, and most expected him to turn pro so this is no real surprise. Best of luck to DJ in the Cubs organization.
