Which prospects could garner LSU offers during camp season?
Remember the LSU mailbag? Multiply it by five. SEC Country’s LSU recruiting reporter Sam Spiegelman will answer reader questions Monday through Friday in a new segment called “LSU recruiting question of the day.” Feel free to join the conversation by tweeting your questions to Sam on Twitter (@samspiegs).
Which lesser known prospects (in-state and out-of-state) do you expect to blow up on LSU’s radar after camping in the summer and the evaluation period?

Excellent question, Ryan, and a very convoluted one as well.
First off, it’s important to point out that a lot of the offers issued by the LSU staff this spring to out-of-state recruits are not all committable. Some of them fit under the label of camp offers, meaning if they are serious about coming to LSU, then they will have to compete at a prospect camp in June.
It’s always a different story when it comes to in-state prospects and those that the staff needs a little bit more time evaluating. When LSU offers a Louisiana prospect, it has to be ready to accept his commitment. Hence, that’s why they prefer they test, camp and compete under the watchful eyes of the coaches.
In Louisiana’s 2019 class, 12 recruits hold offers. That means that there are spots reserved for those 12 recruits to commit whenever they are ready.
This year’s talent pool within the state is as deep as I can recall. The upper echelon of talent certainly rivals the 2016 crop that included Kristian Fulton, Rashard Lawrence, Greedy Williams and Devin White. Beyond the top 12 that already hold committable offers from LSU, there are a handful of notable prospects who are squarely on the team’s radar.
Here are some of the in-state names the staff is expected to further evaluate this spring and hopes to get to a prospect camp this summer:
- Charvis Thornton, 3-star ATH (Baton Rouge, La.)
- Makiya Tongue, 3-star ATH (Baton Rouge, La.)
- Mike Hollins, 3-star RB (Baton Rouge, La.)
- Jordan Clark, 3-star DB (Baton Rouge, La.)
- Greg Brooks Jr., 3-star DB (Harvey, La.)
- Bryton Constantin, 3-star LB (Baton Rouge, La.)
- Chester Kimbrough, 4-star CB (New Orleans)
- Quinton Torbor, 4-star WR (Destrehan, La.)
- Lance LeGendre, 3-star QB (New Orleans)
- Caleb Etienne, 3-star OL (New Orleans)
- Da’Ren Zeno, 3-star WR (Welsh, La.)
- Earl Barquet, 3-star DL (Marrero, La.)
- Billy Sonnier, 3-star DL (Lafayette, La.)
- Ishmael Burdine, 3-star DB (Slidell, La.)
- Dylan Ratchke, 3-star OL (Baton Rouge, La.)
- Deshon Hall, 3-star DL (Gonzales, La.)
- Christian Guillory, 3-star LB (Lake Charles, La.)
- Christian Archangel, 3-star DB (Lafayette, La.)
- Dalvin Hutchinson, 3-star DT (Monroe, La.)
- Tyler Guidry, 3-star ATH (Baton Rouge, La.)
- Tyshawn Howard, 3-star ATH (Baton Rouge, La.)
- Jonathan Porter, 3-star OLB (Edgard, La.)
- Myron Warren, 3-star DE (Many, La.)
From an out-of-state perspective, the staff is still hoping to get a closer look at these prospects:
- Nelson Ceaser, 4-star DE/OLB (Missouri City, Texas)
- Logan Compton, 3-star TE (Bradenton, Fla.)
- Titus Toler, 3-star DB (Bellflower, Calif.)
- Brevyn Jones, OT (Birmingham, Ala.)
