2020 isn't a top class in Louisiana, but it's a deep class in terms of quality. Four kids have given verbals as of the start of this thread. Outside of that, I haven't kept up with it much. I'll try and dig up the expected position breakdown of this class when I can.

There was more to what he said. The staying home part makes sense and is understandable.
There was the "trust" statement as well as the "face of the program" remark.

I'm not concerned about the "trust" remark. LSU signed 13 players from OOS, so that's clearly not an issue the other players and certainly not something the coaches can do anything about with Jarrett. You either have it or you don't. Clearly he had it enough to commit and stay committed up until signing day.

As for the face of the program remark, well that's unlikely to be the case in Baton Rouge. It's also a little shady how he didn't really communicate his intentions with the LSU coaches or the Maryland coaches. I get the vibe that he enjoys the attention (face of the program, telling Locksley you'll see when asked about committing, etc), but it's not something I would make a big deal out of. Recruiting puts the spotlight of these kids and I'm sure lots of them have fun with it. Hopefully he realizes that's over now and no one cares unless he performs on the field.

He's Tiger Bait, now regardless...

Yeah, I agree. I thought both of those statements stood out.

Ultimately he made a choice to go to a school where it will be easy for him to outshine everyone which shows his priority.
He didnt mention anything about turning Maryland into a Big 10 contender...nothing about team with this kid.

fork him....dont want someone like that

I don't pay much attention to recruiting. Are there any uncommitted we are still in the hunt for?

DT, McKinley Jackson has an official visit still lined up. RB, Jahmyr Gibbs, currently committed to GaTech also has a visit lined up soon with LSU and UF. DE, Jordan Burch has not signed his LOI, so the staff should still be breathing down his neck. DT, CamRon Johnson is still a take I assume, if his grades are in order. I have seen chatter about CB, Dwight McGlothern, but I am not sure if it is legit. OT, Ty’kieast Crawford is still an option, but supposedly grades are the issue.
None of these seem to be locks. I wouldn't be surprised to see the staff visit the transfer portal or a Juco player, either. They can always use a scholarship for an early enrollee next class, too.

shouldn't be too hard to round out the class

I don't think they hit 25. That's not a bad thing. Even with 19 players, this is still the #5 class. I think it's better than 5 because kids like Koy, Josh White and Guillory are severely underrated prospects and people are sleeping on Boutte.

One would think that a National Title would be able to pull in another 2 or 3 high recruits

like you said....it isn't like we have to fill up this year. Winning the title and playing strong next year would pull in a huge 2021 class

2021 is going to be the class that lost reflects this season's accomplishments. This is why #1 QB Caleb Williams is a very real possibility for LSU in 2021.

McGlothern commits to LSU on national TV, then proceeds to intercept two passes, including a pick six.

I was reading up on this kid and it sounds like we got a great one
After his junior year, he was considered a 5 star prospect and a top 5 CB. His coaches made him a receiver in his senior year and he caught 18 TDs

So you got a kid who has the talent to be a top CB with the ball skills of a very good receiver. I see a lot of checkdowns our opponents' future

Yeah, he was big last summer. I didn't understand why he dropped. I forgot about him until his name recently surfaced. It's good deal, especially after losing out on Major Burns.

In other news regarding the recruitment of HS Dumpster Fire and All-Everything RB, Zach Evans...

Obviously I havent seen much tape on the kid, but i suppose it is possible that there were some issues at times due to fatigue since he was playing Ironman football

But you have an athletic specimen (has to be to play both ways) who has the capability of being a starter quality CB, S, or WR at the very least. Thats basically worst case scenario
