It will be a short, but ultimately crucial list of 4-star recruits making the trip to LSU this weekend for official visits.
Most noticeable are the two in-state prospects that are taking the short ride to Baton Rouge, La., including 4-star running back Devin White (North Webster High School) and 4-star wide receiver Stephen Sullivan (Donaldsonville High School).
White, who has garnered interest from much of the SEC, took an official visit to Arkansas last weekend after both the Razorbacks and Tigers made in-home visits to the running back over the past 12 days.
White is also scheduled to take official visits to Ole Miss on Jan. 29 and Alabama on Jan. 22. He has previously taken unofficial visits to both LSU and Alabama, and was in Tuscaloosa, Ala. for the Alabama-LSU showdown.
Sullivan has also received an in-home visit from LSU coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.
A former LSU commit, Sullivan’s recruitment began to heat up late this summer as he pulled in offers from across the nation. Since de-committing in August, Sullivan has taken three unofficial visits to LSU.
Sullivan officially visited Mississippi State on Nov. 14 and TCU on Nov. 27.
Another 4-star receiver, Drake Davis (IMG Academy) is also taking an official visit to LSU this weekend.
LSU and Ole Miss are seemingly in a head-to-head competition for the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Florida native. Since September, Davis has taken unofficial visits to Ole Miss and LSU (twice), but named the Rebels his leader in mid-October.
Davis had yet to take an official visit to Oxford, Miss.
UGA linebacker commit Jaleel Laguins (Oconee Country) may be considering his options now that the Bulldogs are undergoing some changes to their coaching staff.
Laguins, who has been committed to UGA since August, is taking his second official visit. The 4-star linebacker visited Nebraska on October 10, and will be taking his first official visit to LSU on Friday.
Laguins was recruited by former UGA defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, who is reportedly on his way to assume the same position at Alabama.
Additionally, 4-star cornerback Joejuan Williams will be at LSU as the Tigers continue to make a push for undecided player.
LSU, Vanderbilt and Tennessee are the three SEC powers that have been most noticeably in the mix for Williams, who officially visited Vanderbilt on Nov. 14.
Williams has taken three unofficial visits to Tennessee since July and officially visited North Carolina and Penn State in November.
