The verdict is finally in.
In what Kristian Fulton admitted was the most difficult decision he has had to make, the nation’s No. 2 cornerback chose LSU over Florida and Arkansas on Wednesday.
LSU edged out the Gators and Razorbacks after taking official visits to all three SEC schools over the last month. Fulton first visited LSU, and afterwards told SEC Country that the Tigers had jumped out in front.
Since then, Fulton visited Arkansas on Jan. 15 and Florida on Jan. 22, leading the five-star recruit to proclaim the race “as close to even as it gets.”
All three coaching staffs made in-home visits to Fulton over the past two weeks. LSU coach Les Miles, first-year defensive coordinator Dave Aranda and defensive backs coach Corey Raymond made trips to the Fulton household to meet with the family.
Fulton placed a lot of importance on his official visits. But while he enjoyed his time at both Fayetteville, Ark., and Gainesville, Fla., Fulton ultimately decided it was in his best interest to remain in Louisiana.
The 6-foot, 177-pound prospect, rated No. 1 in the state of Louisiana, previously told SEC Country that LSU envisions him earning playing time as a true freshman.
Fulton is LSU’s third cornerback commitment. He joins four-star prospect Saivion Smith, an early enrollee, as well as fellow Louisiana native and four-star cornerback Andraez Williams.
