March is the time of the year when the college football recruiting process begins to boil over. Official visits are made and commitments soon follow.

LSU hosted a bevy of targeted players for the 2024 and 2025 classes this weekend and secured a pair of pledges from the ’24 group.

Destrehan’s Kolaj Cobbins committed Friday while Ruston High edge rusher Ahmad Breaux became the 10th commit in the recruiting cycle Sunday for the Tigers.

The 6-3, 255-pound Breaux had previously committed to Duke on January 26t but backed off following his visit to Tigertown this weekend when he received an offer from Brian Kelly. LSU defensive coordinator Matt House was able to sway Breaux with an assist from assistanrt Joe Sloan, who is familiar with the Ruston area having previously coached at Louisiana Tech.

The opportunity to stay in state and play in front of family and friends was too good to pass for Breaux who indicated the recruiting process is over for him. He held offers from Duke, Purdue, Ole Miss, Louisiana Tech, Missouri and ULL.

The nation’s 42nd rated EDGE is the 14th ranked player in the Pelican state for 2024 and second at his position in Louisiana behind only Cobbins.

Breaux, who earned All District 2-5A this past season, runs a 4.82, bench presses 315 pounds and squats 405. He is academically qualified, holding a 4.4 GPA. Breaux could fill an assortment of roles for the Tigers, either as a 3 or 5 technique. A relentless pass rusher who utilizes his bull rush skills as an interior player, he also bends the corner as an outside rusher.
