It’s September 1st which means LSU can begin contacting the 2024 class. Once the clock struck 12:00am, the Tigers’ recruiting staff immediately went to work, making calls to recruits from Tiger Stadium.
Social media was buzzing late Wednesday night with FaceTime calls, posts, and more coming from Death Valley with this program going deep into their bag of tricks. LSU’s 2024 class is already a Top-5 class, but we fully expect this program to mimic their 2023 success into next year.
Here’s a look at the Tigers 2024 class thus far:
Maurice Williams – Safety/Linebacker
The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder developed a strong relationship with defensive coordinator Matt House and defensive backs coaches Kerry Cooks and Robert Steeples. A four-star, top 100 prospects, his recruitment has exploded this spring.
Williams was on campus for an unofficial visit with the Tigers this summer, where he ultimately felt at home. Ready to commit this summer and shut the process down was on his mind for quite some time, leading him to pledge to Brian Kelly and his staff.
A polished, versatile safety when in coverage, the Tigers are getting a prospect with the instincts to make an immediate impact for the program when his number is called. With elite footwork paired with physical traits, Williams has the chance to be up next and continue the “DBU” tradition in Baton Rouge.
Tayvion Galloway – Tight End
The 6-foot-5, 230-pounder has all the tools to compete in the SEC with the developmental skills this coaching staff attains. Kelly has been working to develop relationships early in the 2024 cycle, clearly making an impression on Galloway over a short period.
