LSU’s commits came through with a strong weekend on the football field.
From Florida to Mississippi and Tennessee to Texas, these prospects made their presence felt in a number of ways on both offense and defense. That includes more record-setting performances to etch LSU’s priority recruits in history.
Here’s how they fared:
Myles Brennan, 4-star QB (Bay Saint Louis, Miss.)
Every week in this piece, we break down a record that LSU’s quarterback commit has set.
There’s no new record this week, but an amazing regular season is in the books.
Brennan, who has recently ascended to a 4-star passer, completed 20 of 28 attempts for 300 yards and 3 touchdowns. That pushed his season touchdown total to 40 — all without throwing an interception.
All 3 of Brennan’s touchdowns went to Chase Rogers, a Tennessee tight end commit.
Kary Vincent Jr., 4-star CB (Port Arthur, Texas)
Vincent has been an All-World cornerback this season for unbeaten Memorial High. Despite a quiet night on the defensive side against a team that primarily runs the ball, the 4-star LSU pledge still found a way to make his presence felt.
Vincent had a 65-yard kick return for a touchdown. Remember, Vincent is a Texas track champion with an electric 40 time, which makes him dangerous not only in the secondary, but also as a return specialist.
So yeah, the Donte Jackson comparisons are certainly justified.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire, 3-star RB (Baton Rouge, La.)
LSU’s dynamic running back commit continued with his season-long theme of big plays.
That started with a 46-yard punt return for Catholic High to put the Bears on the board early in the first quarter. Basically, once Edwards-Helaire finds a seam, it’s nearly impossible to slow him down.
Edwards-Helaire finished the game with 29 yards on 4 rushing attempts and 4 receptions for 98 yards. As dynamic a threat as he was in the passing game, he also returned 3 punts for 58 yards, including the score.
Edwards-Helaire upped his career rushing total to 2,829 yards, which is good for fourth in the Catholic High record books. He is 439 yards shy of catching former Catholic standout and current LSU running back Derrius Guice for third all-time.

Mannie Netherly, 4-star WR (Crosby, Texas)
On Netherly’s final regular-season outing, the future LSU wide receiver rushed three times for 3 yards. Through the air, he was 11-of-25 for one touchdown and two interceptions.
Throughout the season, Netherly has torched teams with his arm and legs, but was slowed down a bit on Crosby’s (Texas) senior night. Keep in mind that Netherly plays quarterback for his high school team, but will transition to wide receiver when he arrives at LSU this spring.
Neil Farrell, 3-star DL (Mobile, Ala.)
Yet again, Farrell has been wreaking havoc on opposing offenses.
LSU’s versatile defensive line commit amassed 16 tackles, 5 of which were for loss, in addition to a sack, 3 quarterback hurries and a batted-down pass.
Aaron Moffitt, 3-star DL (Baton Rouge, La.)
Moffitt sat out this week’s game after another notable effort last week in Catholic High’s rivalry showdown.
The 3-star LSU commit managed 4 tackles, including 1 for loss. He also had 1.5 sacks and 4 quarterback hurries.
Moffitt played sparingly this past week and the same could be in store for next week, too. He is getting rest as the postseason nears, his defensive coordinator told SEC Country.
Patrick Queen, 4-star LB (Livonia, La.)
LSU’s future linebacker continues to be a force on the offensive side of the ball.
This week, Queen broke loose for 75 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns. He has been a stud on both sides of the ball this season, and 4 more trips to the end zone justify the caliber of athlete LSU will have in the “Rover” position next fall.

Jontre Kirklin, 3-star ATH (Lutcher, La.)
Kirklin is slated to play defensive back for the Tigers, but continues to tear apart defenses behind center.
The standout athlete and Lutcher’s dual-threat quarterback rushed for 4 touchdowns and passed for 2 more in a 49-14 victory Friday night. Through the air, Kirklin completed 10 of 15 passes for 91 yards. He amassed 80 yards on 7 carries.
JaCoby Stevens, 5-star S (Murfreesboro, Tenn.)
Just hours after receiving his Under Armour All-America Game jersey, Stevens proved why he’s one of the top defensive backs in the country.
The 5-star safety registered seven tackles, four of which were highlight-reel pops. Stevens also had a long punt return that he nearly scored on.
Stevens also had 42 yards receiving, and did so with LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond and director of player personnel and assistant athletic director Austin Thomas on the sidelines.
