2023 4-star Baton Rouge running back Commits to LSU

Running back Kaleb Jackson from Liberty Magnet High School in Baton Rouge elected to stay home and play with the Tigers. According to On3’s prediction machine, Alabama was LSU’s biggest threat to pluck the in-state recruit, but coach Brian Kelly managed to keep Jackson in the boot.

Jackson — the No. 192 player in the country and No. 6 running back — took visits to LSU, Alabama, and Texas A&M in June. On 247Sports, Jackson had received three Crystal Balls, all for LSU.

The 247Sports Composite Rankings have Jackson as the sixth-best running back in the class. Jackson runs track as well and has good speed. He’s listed at 5-foot-10 and 200 pounds.

Jackson is the second running back to join LSU’s 2023 class after fellow Louisiana recruit Trey Holly committed in May. He is just the third Louisiana recruit to commit to LSU this cycle, joining Holly and defensive back Ashton Stamps.

It’s a positive sign after LSU’s had some in-state struggles in the past month. Blue-chip Louisiana prospects like Shelton Sampson Jr. and Tyree Adams could be next.

LSU currently has a top 10 recruiting class in the 2023 cycle, and it could get even better in the coming weeks and months.

Jackson became commit No. 15 in the 2023 class after the Tigers also welcomed three-star linebacker Whit Weeks Saturday afternoon. He’s the second running back commit in the class, joining four-star Louisiana native Trey Holly.

Jackson is one of the most dynamic running backs left on the market, choosing LSU over Alabama and Texas A&M.

The 5-foot-10, 200-pound prospect is a top recruit in Louisiana and a top 10 running back in the class of 2023. For Kelly and his staff to keep the Baton Rouge native home is a massive win for this program as they continue trying to reel in the state’s top talent.
