LSU’s defensive back haul just got a lot more talented.
Marcus Banks, a top cornerback out of Texas, gave a commitment to the Tigers in the aftermath of his official visit this weekend. Banks, who measures 6 feet and 170 pounds, can run a sub-4.5 40-yard dash and help fill a major need on the outside in the secondary.
Banks’ mother, Leah Banks-Meeks, is originally from Louisiana. The Banks family has visited multiple times this spring, including a junior day in March and again this past weekend for an official visit.
Alabama, Auburn, Texas and Texas A&M were other finalists for the 3-star cornerback.
Banks becomes the second defensive back in LSU’s 2019 recruiting class along with 4-star Maurice Hampton. The team could add two more cornerbacks to its haul over the summer with 5-star cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. set to make his college decision on June 20 and 4-star cornerback Devin Bush prepared to do the same in August.
Banks is the 12th member of the Tigers’ class, which entered Sunday ranked No. 15 in the nation, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
