The Tigers aren’t done yet when it comes to adding players to their 2023 recruiting class, and now they boast a group of players that ranks in the top five nationally.
On Thursday morning, LSU picked up an absolutely massive commitment from four-star Eagles Landing Christian Academy (McDonough, Ga.) offensive tackle DJ Chester. He becomes the fourth offensive line commitment in the class, joining Zalance Heard, Tyree Adams and Paul Mubenga.
The Tigers had long been seen as the favorite for Chester, who ranks as the No. 13 offensive tackle and No. 138 overall player in the 2023 recruiting class. He’s also a top-10 prospect in the state of Georgia.
LSU was in need of another offensive lineman in the 2023 class and that’s exactly what Brian Kelly and his staff went out and secured after gaining a commitment from 4-star DJ Chester. The Georgia native announced his pledge to the Tigers early Thursday morning.
Chester is commit No. 24 in the 2023 class after the Tigers also welcomed 4-star linebacker Christian Brathwaite last week as well. This is a huge victory for this LSU staff. In search of another lineman to accompany their three other commits up front, this gives the Tigers some additional depth for the future.
The dynamic prospect, who was also considering Auburn, Michigan, Florida State and Ole Miss, gives offensive line coach Brad Davis a weapon who has significant upside going forward.
