The LSU coaching staff hosted 15 priority recruits this past weekend, including some of the top commits and blue-chip targets that are left on the Tigers’ board.
But now, the staff is on the road.
That includes LSU head coach Ed Orgeron, who is making his way to see three of the Tigers’ most important commits on Monday.
Orgeron will go in-home with 4-star linebacker commit Patrick Queen, 4-star wide receiver commit Stephen Guidry and 4-star offensive line commit Saahdiq Charles, they told SEC Country.
All three of the commits are scheduled to officially visit LSU this upcoming weekend, but Orgeron is going to see them face-to-face to solidify the team’s stance with them.
Queen shut down his recruitment on Christmas Eve and is a major priority given that he is the lone linebacker commit — for the moment — in the 2017 recruiting class. He has the ability to play multiple positions, including running back, and is arguably the Tigers’ most solid pledge. Hence, that is why both Dave Aranda and Corey Raymond will join Orgeron on this in-home stop.
Guidry first committed to LSU in May at the Bayou Picnic, but de-committed in early October. However, after sorting out his grades in the classroom, Guidry was re-offered by wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig and re-committed just a few days later. Guidry opted not to make an official visit to Mississippi State last weekend, but will return to Baton Rouge on Jan. 20.
Like Queen, Charles shut down his recruitment after offensive line coach Jeff Grimes went in-home with him during the December Contact Period. Ole Miss, Florida and Mississippi State all made attempts to push Charles to flip, but his ties to Grimes and Orgeron were too much for the talented offensive lineman.
These are three of LSU’s 19 commits in the 2017 recruiting class. They will join the likes of Markaviest Bryant, Willie Gay, Marlon Williams and Neil Farrell in Baton Rouge this weekend.
