A signature new offer was fished out in-state during the evaluation period.
Bertrand Carrell, a 3-star defensive back out of Madison Prep (La.) High School in Baton Rouge, pocked up an offer from LSU on Thursday afternoon. The overture came after first-year safeties coach Bill Busch watched Carrell’s practice.
Carrell, who measures up at 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, is just the third Louisiana defensive back to garner an offer from the Tigers, joining 5-star cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. and 4-star defensive back Devin Bush.
The Baton Rouge standout ranks as a top-100 safety in the Class of 2019 and a top-40 prospect in the state.
Carrell has enjoyed a busy spring, collecting offers from not only LSU, but Texas A&M, Missouri and Kentucky of late. He is expected to attend LSU’s prospect camp in June, which looms large in the direction of his recruitment.
