LSU has scored another football win over Clemson.

Four-star safety Khari Gee committed to the national champion Tigers over the runner-up Tigers, becoming LSU’s 11th commitment in the 2021 class.

LSU assistants Bill Busch and Bo Pelini were instrumental in securing the pledge from Gee, who was drawn to the allure of Tiger Stadium despite 30 FBS offers.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound product of Woodward Academy in College Park, Georgia is the ninth-highest rated safety in the country. He recorded 58 tackles last season with four for loss while breaking up six passes.

Gee runs the alley from his safety spot and demolishes runners on contact. He covers a lot of ground and demonstates outstanding timing on his blitzes.

Another interesting fact is Gee’s talent as a shortstop in baseball. He runs well while showing good power from right side of plate. Gee hits to all fields really well.

Gee is the second safety among the 2021 commitments, joining Dakota Mitchell out of Florida.
