LSU has been patient as it looks to add a quarterback to its 2019 recruiting class. On Wednesday evening, the staff made a very notable move.
The Tigers extended an offer to 4-star mobile quarterback Taisun Phommachanh, the No. 3-ranked dual-threat prospect in the country and top overall prospect in Connecticut according to 247Sports.
Phommachanh, who measures up to 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, already holds offers from Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Kentucky, Ole Miss, South Carolina, TCU and Penn State, as well as several others. The Seminoles are considered the early favorite for the talented prospect from the Northeast.
As a junior at Avon Gold Farms (Conn.) High School, Phommachanh completed better than 70 percent of his passes for a combined 2,253 yards and 25 touchdowns compared to just 1 interception. He added another 633 yards on the ground to go along with 17 rushing scores.
LSU has been zeroed in on 4-star All-America passer Grant Gunnell during the early part of the 2019 recruiting cycle. Phommachanh became just the sixth quarterback in the class to pick up an offer from the Tigers.
