LSU Signed Top Rated Offensive Lineman Recruit
Coach O has always been known as a boss level recruiter during his career in college football, and he's managed to sign another nationally top rated recruit to join the Tigers next season.
LSU has landed four-star recruit Will Campbell from Neville High School from Monroe. Campbell is the number one offensive lineman in the state and ranks nationally as the number ten recruit in the country at his postion.
Campbell had this to say in a press release:
I just feel like I can go into that program and have the best chance of making an impact, playing as early as I can. It’s easy because it’s close to home, and while other schools made a push, I feel like there’s some little things that separated LSU. Walker Howard and Jack Bech are going there and that always helps because I have a relationship with them. We’re trying to win a national championship and they have a great program with great coaches. I have great relationships there and I can see myself playing for them.
This is a great signing for the Tigers. Offensive line is definitely a position we need to shore up, as we lost our starting quarterback Miles Brennan last year to injury.
It's also always great to see Louisiana boys staying in the state and playing for a Louisiana university. Campbell isn't alone in his football journey to LSU, either. He's the fifth Louisiana player to sign with the Tigers. He'll be joining St. Thomas More (Lafeyette) QB Walker Howard, Green Oaks (Shereveport) WR Decoldest Crawford, Karr (New Orleans) WR Aaron Anderson, and Acadiana (Lafeyette) CB Laterrance Welch.
