LSU’s defensive back haul for 2019 grew a little more talented on Sunday thanks to a major flip.
Cordale Flott, who has been committed to Auburn since April, switched his pledge to LSU at the conclusion of his three-day official visit to Baton Rouge.
Flott, a 3-star cornerback, measures at 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds. He is ranked as the No. 51 cornerback in the Class of 2019 and the No. 22 overall prospect from Alabama.
Flott camped at LSU on Friday morning, impressing defensive backs coach Corey Raymond with his long frame and ability to break quickly on the ball.
“I’m just doing what’s best for me and my career ahead,” Flott told SEC Country in regard to his decision to flip.
The Saraland (La.) High School product becomes the 17th member of LSU’s 2019 recruiting class and the fifth defensive back, joining Derek Stingley Jr., Maurice Hampton, Marcus Banks and Dreshun Miller.
Four of those defensive backs have committed in the last month, including Miller, who did so on Saturday. The Tigers are eyeing a six-man group in this cycle.
The addition of Flott vaulted LSU to No. 3 nationally in the 247Sports composite team recruiting class rankings.
