-LSU's Doctor of Special Teams Greg McMahon has offered the #3 ranked kicker in the country, Will Bettridge, a young man who LSU Odyssey covered when he visited on June 11th, the same weekend as Denver Harris and C.J Washington.
Rated by KornBlue as the #1 kicking prospect in America, and ranked with 5 stars by Kohl's, the Miami native is catching big waves of attention from the LSU staff.
-Ponchatoula's Amorian Walker arrived on campus for an unofficial visit, bringing his family along with him. Though the hybrid WR/DB remains committed to Notre Dame, offers from the Tigers, as well as a few other SEC powers, has moved the needle on Walker's recruitment.
Much like teammates, Jacoby Mathews or Kody Finley, Walker is one of Ponchatoula's most complete players, a versatile athlete capable of playing both sides of the ball. He's also a member of the 7 v 7 Louisiana Bootlegger outfit, like many former LSU Tiger legends or current 2022 commits / targets (Omarion Miller, Jacoby Mathews, Laterrance Welch, Jordan Allen among many others).
-My man ADIESEL tells me Chapparal High's 2022 DL Anthony Lucas has arrived on campus: the Arizona-located bruiser is a highly sought after DT, the 83rd overall player in the nation and the 14th overall DT according to the 247 composite;
In LSU's pursuit for the Scottsdale DT, recruiting coordinator Mason Smith and DL Coach Andre Carter are teaming up, with Smith surprisingly taking the lead here.
Mason Smith is proving his worth as a recruiting dynamo for LSU, and with the Tigers getting Lucas' family to travel down to Baton Rouge for a visit, you can tell Mason is pulling out all the stops.
Across 17 games as a sophomore & junior, Lucas totaled 13 sacks, 75 total tackles (44 solo), 25.5 TFL, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, a TD as both a runner & receiver, and 1 interception.
Whether or not LSU grab commitments from all these out of state targets isn't the biggest deal, what matters though???
The fact LSU are able to attract so many families into visiting campus, committing their own hard earned money, taking time off work, traveling long distances....all just to experience LSU in person.
That's when you know the Tiger recruiting machine is lighting June up like Ray Baker....
