LSU coach Ed Orgeron wants to build his team from the inside out, and his 2018 recruiting class is reflecting as much.
Dominic Livingston, a 3-star defensive tackle from Houston, committed to the Tigers on Day 1 of his official visit to Baton Rouge. Livingston is the eighth defensive lineman in LSU’s 2018 recruiting class.
The 6-foot-3, 340-pound prospect is a one-time Texas A&M verbal. Livingston backed off his pledge in October just weeks after securing an offer from Orgeron.
LSU’s coach stopped by Aldine Davis (Texas) High School and made an in-home visit with Livingston in the first two weeks of the December Contact Period. That full-throttle push has quickly paid dividends.
The addition of Livingston pushes the total number of commitments to 20 in the current recruiting class, which entered the day ranked No. 12 nationally. The majority are expected to sign their letters of intent when the early-signing period arrives Dec. 20, including LSU’s newest commitment, Livingston.
