2024 WESTGATE DL DE'MYRION JOHNSON COMMITS TO LSU

By LONN PHILLIPS SULLIVAN

As we reported earlier this week with our second Melvin Hills exclusive convo, LSU's newly minted DL Coach Jimmy Lindsey is hitting the ground running as far as establishing himself on the recruiting trail....but on Thursday, the former South Carolina DL Coach's pedigree as a recruiter is now starting to shine through:

The Tigers picked up another 2024 commitment from Westgate DE De'Myrion Johnson, a 6'3 280 pound 3-4 star rated talent (depending on the recruiting site).

While LSU already did some great work on Johnson previously under Jamar Cain, Lindsey's hire, led by strong work from LSU Recruiting kingpin Frank Wilson and recruiting specialist Sherman Wilson, made the young man's decision clearer and quicker.

"I can play for my hometown team and go down the road and put on the purple and gold and rep the Tigers," Johnson said to On3.

Production-wise, Johnson produced 36 tackles for loss as a sophomore at Westgate, an unbelievable number as the Mighty Tigers won a 4A state title in the Superdome (also wrapping up 67 tackles).

The 45th rated defensive line prospect in America is now a Tiger, eschewing offers from Florida, Alabama, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, and Texas among others to wear the purple and gold.

Johnson is just the second defensive line commitment of the 16 man class, now joining fellow local powerhouse Ahmad Breaux.

Following Johnson's commitment, Brian Kelly's 2024 Tigers now have verbal pledges from 5 of Louisiana's top 11 rated seniors.

Could his 2025 DB teammate Jaborree Anotine, a top 5 DB within his class, also join him down the line??

Recruiting is a game of chess....and in Frank Wilson, LSU are being led by the grandmaster flash.
