- SEC Country LSU reporter Sam Spiegelman recapped all of the latest storylines regarding Tigers recruiting. Here’s what he had to say on Periscope about the prospects that have been on campus this week and the late addition to the 2016 signing class.
- Some of LSU’s assistant coaches received new deals and hefty bonuses. Find out the contract details for Cam Cameron, Ed Orgeron, Jabbar Juluke and Dameyune Craig.
