LSU’s 2024 recruiting class expanded by one Saturday with the pledge of four-star safety DaShawn McBryde from Denham Springs High School.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound McByrde had 46 tackles, four for loss, nine interceptions, four forced fumbles and broke up nine passes. He accounted for a pair of scores on defense. He earned All State honors in 2022. The recruiting process has been on a meteoric rise most recently.

McBryde becomes the 13th commit for Brian Kelly’s 2024 LSU recruiting class. He received an offer from the Tigers just a few weeks ago on March 24 and also considered offers from Baylor, Florida, Mississippi State, Houston, Tulane, Vanderbilt, Missouri, Florida Atlantic, Texas Tech, Incarnate Word, Tennessee, ULL and Ole Miss.

McBryde was attracted to LSU’s commitment to win a National title and their attention to detail during his visit this weekend during the spring football game. Very athletic, he can line up in the box or in space. He triple jumped 43’5″ for the Yellow Jackets track team.

LSU assistants Joe Sloan, Kerry Cooks and Jordan Arcement collaborated on his recruitment. McBryde is the fourth overall ranked player in Louisiana for 2024.
