There will be an elite collection of talent in The Boot this Saturday as the LSU players embark on spring break.
With the Pylon 7-on-7 tournament circuit set to host an event on Sunday, several of the nation’s top teams will use the weekend to make a pit-stop in Baton Rouge. The majority of the talent will hail from Louisiana and Texas.
Moore, a priority target for the Tigers, is coming off a visit to LSU last month for national junior day in which he had plenty of positive things to say, including the message from the new coaching staff and why LSU holds a unique edge. It’s also worth noting that Moore made the visit along with his twin brother, 4-star corner and Texas A&M pledge Jordan Moore, who is high on LSU as well after getting re-engaged by Tigers defensive backs coach Corey Raymond on his visit last month.
Green did not make junior day because of a scheduling conflict with the Under Armour All-America camp on Sunday, so his return on Saturday will mark his first visit of 2017. The 4-star cornerback from Houston and priority LSU target camped in Baton Rouge last July and returned for the Alabama game in November. The Tigers and Texas are considered the frontrunners for the elite defensive back.
This marks the inaugural stop at LSU for newly offered safety target Leon O’Neal Jr. and 4-star wide receiver Brennan Eagles. Both added offers from the Tigers this spring and are top-100 recruits in this 2018 recruiting cycle.
