After swinging and missing on prized 4-star tackle Jean Delance, LSU has turned its attention to another big offensive tackle.
LSU extended an offer to 4-star tackle Alex Leatherwood of Washington High School (Pensacola, Fla.) Leatherwood is an Alabama commit for the Class of 2017.

Leatherwood is considered a hard Alabama commit, as he pledged to the Crimson Tide back in June.
LSU has two offensive lineman commits in its 2016 recruiting class: 4-star guard Donavaughn Campbell (Ponchatoula, La.), and 3-star tackle Jakori Savage (Bay Minette, Ala.)
The 6-foot-4.5, 297-pound lineman is rated as the nation’s No. 19 offensive tackle and the No. 18 prospect from Florida for 2017.
