Like they hope to say in the music profession, the hits keep coming. The same can apply to LSU’s 2019 recruiting push this summer.

Inside linebacker Kendall McCallum from Oxford High in Alabama committed to LSU, rejecting offers from Ole Miss, Memphis, Wake Forest, Louisville, Tulane, Southern Miss, Troy and South Alabama.

The 6-foot-3, 235 pounder recorded 72 tackles with 12 tackles for loss, four sacks and a pair of forced fumbles in 2017 at the same high school where former LSU and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Kwon Alexander also attended.

McCallum is a devastating tackler and those close claim that you can “hear” his tackles. He will rock you, pardon another music pun. He takes no false steps to the ball and takes good angles.

Reportedly, LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda was smitten after watching him in action and felt he would be a great fit in his scheme.
