LSU’s quest for a quarterback for its 2017 recruiting class continues.
The Tigers have offered three-star pro-style quarterback Kaymen Cureton out of California, he announced on Twitter.
“I’ve just received a BIG TIME SEC OFFER from THE LSU,” Cureton wrote. “Salute to Coach Raymond.”
Cureton, a 6-foot-2, 194-pound San Jose State commit, also lines up at safety for Los Angeles Senior High School (Calif.). He is rated the No. 56 pro-style quarterback in the Class of 2017, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond may view him as a future defensive back since he extended the offer Cureton’s way.
What it means: LSU continues to dish out offers to prospective quarterbacks, including a handful of the dual-threat variety and athletes at the position.
Aside from St. James High School (La.) standout Lowell Narcisse, Landry-Walker High School (New Orleans) standout Keytaon Thompson and Texas four-star prospect Shawn Robinson, the Tigers coaches have offered Malik Cunningham, Kellen Mond, Jake Bentley and Tate Martell in a span of two weeks.
Cunningham recently named LSU his leading school after attending Junior Day in Baton Rouge, La. Mond and Martell are committed to Baylor and Texas A&M, respectively, and Bentley is the lone pro-style prospect of the group.
LSU is clearly putting together a contingency plan should Narcisse opt not to pledge to the in-state Tigers. However, it is becoming more and more likely that the Tigers will try to secure commitments from at least two quarterbacks in their 2017 recruiting class.
