LSU’s commits came through with a strong weekend.
From Florida to Mississippi and Tennessee to Texas, these prospects made their presence felt in a number of different ways on both the offensive and defensive sides of the football.
Myles Brennan, 3-star QB (Bay St. Louis, Miss.)
Brennan etched himself among the all-time greats from the Magnolia State. LSU’s quarterback commit completed 28 of 32 passes for 366 yards and 5 touchdowns and vaulted himself into first place in the Mississippi career passing records.
A 6-foot-3, 180-pound New Orleans native, Brennan passed another St. Stanislaus High School great, Dylan Favre, Brett’s nephew, for the mark. After the electric Friday night performance, Brennan is up to 12,801 career passing yards. On the season, he has amassed 1,279 yards and 13 touchdowns in five games.

JaCoby Stevens, 5-star S (Murfreesboro, Tenn.)
Stevens is preparing to live up to LSU’s “DBU” reputation and more. The dynamic athlete was a force on both sides of the ball for Oakland High School, with 3 interceptions in addition to a 79-yard touchdown while lining up at wide receiver.
The future Tigers safety will, of course, have a package of plays designed for him when he arrives at LSU. He’s giving plenty of reasons why when he takes the field on Friday nights.

Stephen Guidry, 3-star WR (Hinds Community College)
Guidry showed just how deep LSU’s wide receiver class is. The top junior college wideout had a 7-yard touchdown reception, which marked the third consecutive game in which Guidry has come down with a touchdown catch.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, 3-star RB (Baton Rouge, La.)
LSU’s running back pledge sat out last weekend with a nagging hip pointer, but returned to action this week in spite of the setback. The 5-foot-9, 191-pound running back amassed 108 yards on just seven carries. That included a 75-yard touchdown.
Edwards-Helaire was banged in the hip again in the second quarter and sat out the second half of the game. He told SEC Country he feels great and there was no setback.
Patrick Queen, 4-star LB (Livonia, La.)
Queen will play “Rover” linebacker for Dave Aranda when he arrives at LSU, but a quick glimpse of the 4-star athlete’s tape against Port Allen (La.) High School shows his versatility.
Lined up at outside linebacker, Queen recorded a tackle for loss, two pass deflections, a quarterback hurry and a sack.
At running back, the 6-foot-1, 218-pounder had runs of 15, 13 and 16 before having touchdown runs of 18 and 13 yards. On the night, he amassed more than 100 yards and broke a handful of tackles on each of his runs.
Grant Delpit, 4-star S (Bradenton, Fla.)
Delpit had another big game, coming up with a red-zone interception and delivering some monster hits.
The 6-foot-4, 181-pound safety came down with a pick in the end zone to seal the IMG Academy victory. Delpit has three interceptions through five games.

Kary Vincent Jr., 4-star CB (Port Arthur, Texas)
LSU’s future cornerback showed his nose for the football for Memorial High School, coming through with a game-ending interception in the waning seconds.
Vincent has been a ballhawk his entire high school career. His interception Friday was his second of the season.

Jontre Kirklin, 3-star ATH (Lutcher, La.)
One of the most dynamic athletes in Louisiana again put up video game-like statistics behind center for Lutcher (La.) High School. Kirklin, a 6-foot, 166-pound dual-threat quarterback that will make the leap to defensive back for LSU, accounted for 386 total yards of offense and five touchdowns.
Kirklin threw for touchdown passes of 19, 15, 11 and 23 yards, and added a 4-yard touchdown run.
Nadab Joseph, 4-star DB (Miami)
Joseph has shown how excellent he is as a coverage corner and safety. He is now revealing another tool in his repertoire.
The Miami native delivered this blow during his game Friday, which he labeled the “death drop.”

Maurice Hampton, 4-star DB (Memphis, Tenn.)
One of LSU’s three 2019 commits, Hampton, has been consistent at terrorizing both opposing offenses and defenses during his sophomore season.
Hampton, the 5-foot-11, 190-pound cornerback, had a pair of interceptions, including pick-6 for Memphis (Tenn.) University School. The second pick which resulted in the return for a touchdown marked his third defensive touchdown of the year.
The talented defensive back almost managed to recover a fumble in the end zone and broke up a pass, which helped a teammate procure an interception.
I believe that's three defensive touchdowns already this year for @maurice_hampton
