LSU is looking to make a splash in the 2020 class and will have an opportunity to do just that with a prized visitor on Friday.
Rising sophomore tailback Ashaad Clayton is scheduled to make an unofficial visit, joined by his family, and squeeze in time with the Tigers’ coaching staff right before the dead period hits in August.
Clayton, who is 6-feet tall and weighs 185 pounds, added an offer from LSU in June during the joint prospect camp with Tulane.
The Warren Easton Charter School (New Orleans) standout competed in the LSU 7-on-7 tournament with his teammates on campus. Clayton drew the attention of running backs coach Tommie Robinson, New Orleans area recruiter Mickey Joseph and general manager Austin Thomas during the event.
Clayton saw his recruitment take off this spring and emerged as one the most sought-after 2020 prospects in the state. Auburn, Tennessee and Georgia joined Kansas and Tulane in offering Clayton before LSU followed suit in June.
He is one of two tailbacks in the 2020 class to hold an offer from the Tigers and one of three Louisiana prospects to have received an offer.
