The LSU Tigers and head coach Les Miles always do a great job of recruiting within their own state, and earlier this week, the Tigers were able to reel in a playmaking wide receiver from the Bayou state that pushed them atop the 2015 class rankings with the highest-rated class.
Four-star wide receiver Jazz Ferguson verbally committed to the Tigers on Wednesday after being offered at the Tigers’ annual Junior Day camp on Feb. 15. He chose LSU over Houston, Louisiana Tech and Memphis. Ferguson has always been favoring the Tigers for quite some time as he visited the LSU campus twice unofficially last spring as well as at summer camp in June, but he was waiting for the offer from the home-state Tigers and finally got it.
At 6-foot-5, 205 pounds, Ferguson is rated as the No. 21 wide receiver in the country and the seventh-best player in the state of Louisiana for the class of 2015. The Saint Francisville, LA native has somehow flown under the radar from most powerhouse programs other than the Tigers, even though he is highly rated with four-star status.
The Tigers are off to a hot start as they now have not only the top recruiting class in the SEC, but in the entire country. For 2015, the Tigers already have nine commitments, including two five-star players in cornerback Kevin Tolliver II and offensive lineman Maea Teuhema, as well as three four-star commitments.
