LSU football has added another commitment to its battleground position group at the defensive line.

Four-star edge rusher Demon Clowney, a 6-foot-4, 225 pounder from Baltimore, announced his commitment to LSU on Twitter Saturday.

Clowney is the cousin of Houston Texans’ linebacker Jadeveon Clowney.

At times appearing unblockable, the younger Clowney is a relentless pass rusher, great get off at line of scrimmage. He disengages with blockers quickly and uses his hands exceptionally well. His coaches at St. Frances High School said he is similar to his cousin at this stage.

Watching film, Clowney did remind me a bit of a pair of past LSU rushers, Arden Key or K’Lavon Chaisson, coming out of high school. He still will have to develop as an overall player, but you can witness his athleticism. It jumps off the tape.

Clowney considered offers from Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Maryland, Penn State, Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Texas A&M and North Carolina. He is the fifth rated weakside end in the nation by 24/7.
