Kendall Milton

In a May 29 update here at CCS, I cited what this upcoming weekend will look like on the LSU campus in regard to visitors. Here’s an update on it.

It’s obvious that 5 star RB Kendall Milton from Clovis, California is one the Tigers would love to add. The 6-foot-2, 220 pounder has proclaimed LSU, Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State as his “Final Four.” He’ll be joined on campus by 4 star WR E.J. Williams (6-3, 188) from Phenix City, Alabama and JUCO DB Marco Domio (6-2, 190) from Brenham, Texas.

Another 5 star in the 2020 class, cornerback Elias Ricks, already pledged to Tigers for ’20 but he’s making an unofficial visit in part to lend a hand with swaying these aforementioned desired targets.

A couple of additional highly coveted prospects will accompany this group to town.

Defensive end Ali Gaye (6-6, 270) from Garden City JUCO originally signed with Washington in 2018. The Edmonds, Washington native has LSU as his perceived current favorite over Nebraska, Iowa State, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Kansas State and West Virginia. Gaye has great length and comes hard off the edge.

Joining the fray is defensive tackle Vernon Broughton (6-5, 286) from Houston. He runs a 5.01 forty, shows good quickness off the snap, provides in-line power and tracks plays down. Texas, LSU, Ohio State, Texas A&M and Arkansas comprise his top five. An August decision is expected. LSU head coach Ed Orgeron spoke recently of his focus on the Houston area with three assistants working the scene for players like Broughton.

With the commitment of Madison Prep’s Major Burns, LSU has 16 commitments for 2020. We’ll look at some more possibilities to fill the highly-rated class in my next update.
