The LSU Tigers have established themselves as one of the country’s premier football schools over the past decade and a half, and while a lot of their talent has come from their home state of Louisiana, Texas has equipped them with some great weapons. The recruiting class of 2017 is no different and features four Texans in the top eight of LSU’s class.

The #6 rated offensive tackle in the country, according to 247Sports, out of Cy-Fair High School is LSU’s highest rated recruit for the 2017 class.

Deculus had offers from Alabama, OU, Notre Dame and many other prestigious universities, but committed to LSU in May. Deculus is ranked #14 in the ESPN300.

The 5’ 11” corner out of Memorial High School in Port Arthur, Texas comes in as LSU’s 6th highest ranked recruit and finds himself among the top 20 corners in the nation and can also be a threat in the return game.

Vincent is a four star recruit who had 32 offers from division 1 schools, but looks to continue the DBU (defensive back university) tradition at LSU.

The 6’ 4” offensive guard from DeSoto is the second offensive lineman on this list and bodes a four star rating. Ingram is the 10th rated guard in the 2017 recruiting class, and rated the 31st player in the state of Texas. Ingram had over 20 offers and is ranked 95th in the ESPN300.

Netherly out of Crosby Texas comes in ranked the 31st wide receiver in the country. He committed to Texas A&M back in November of 2015, but decommitted in May because a former Aggie wide receivers coach made some impromptu tweets about another recruit’s choice to decommit. He reopened his recruitment and picked LSU shortly after.
