LSU’s commits came through with a strong weekend.
From Florida to Mississippi and Tennessee to Texas, these prospects made their presence felt in a number of ways on both the offensive and defensive sides of the football.
Kary Vincent Jr., 4-star CB (Port Arthur, Texas)
Vincent has been a playmaker on defense and special teams all season and quickly continued that trend Friday night for Memorial High School.
The future standout in the LSU secondary nabbed not one, but two pick-6s in the opening quarter. One of Vincent’s returns went 65 yards for a score; the other went for 43 yards.
Vincent has five interceptions in his last four games.

Neil Farrell, 3-star DL (Mobile, Ala.)
There are big outings and then there are clutch outings. Farrell managed to take care of both in Murphy High’s rivalry game Thursday night.
The 6-foot-4, 295-pound defensive lineman made his case for a fourth star, registering 13 tackles, including 6.0 for loss, and 3.0 sacks on the evening. Farrell came through with a game-saving sack as the opposing offense attempted a go-ahead 2-point conversion, preserving his team’s win.
More interesting to note: Farrell played defensive end for much of the night, which he usually does, but lined up at nose tackle for the final play.

Aaron Moffitt, 3-star DL (Baton Rouge, La.)
The versatile Catholic High defensive lineman was a sack artist on Friday night. Moffitt, who is expected to play either defensive end or stand-up outside linebacker for the Tigers, came away with four sacks
And another sack by @AaronTMoffitt I think that's number 4 on the night. Sheesh

JaCoby Stevens, 5-star S (Murfreesboro, Tenn.)
One of the most dynamic safeties in the country again was a force to be reckoned with, but in the other two phases of the game.
Stevens, who is also a stud on offense and special teams, returned two punts for touchdowns — one from 45 yards and another for 60. Additionally, the 5-star athlete hauled in a 20-yard touchdown pass, his third score of the contest.

Myles Brennan, 3-star QB (Bay St. Louis, Miss.)
Coming off a bye week, LSU’s record-setting quarterback pledge did not miss a beat.
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound pro-style passer accounted for 283 yards through the air and three touchdowns, and added a pair of rushing scores — all before halftime. Brennan threw for touchdowns of 7, 5 and 24 yards, and rushed for touchdowns of 11 and 12 yards.
- 3-star Lutcher (La.) athlete Jontre Kirklin, who plays quarterback at the high school level but will transition to defensive back for LSU, did not play. Kirklin suffered minor headaches leading up to the game and was held out for precautionary reasons.
- 3-star Catholic High (Baton Rouge, La.) running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been explosive his senior season, but sat out Friday’s game due to a bruised hip. Edwards-Helaire aggravated his hip injury two weeks ago after eclipsing 100 yards in the first half. The injury is not considered to be serious.
- Lowell Naricisse, LSU’s 4-star quarterback commit, is a few weeks into rehab. He was named St. James (La.) Homecoming King on Friday night.
- IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) teammates Grant Delpit and Jhamon Ausbon are on a bye week. The 4-star LSU commits will resume action next Friday at home against Southern Lab (Baton Rouge, La.).
