LSU head coach Paul Mainieri and Recruiting Coordinator Nolan Cain received some good news on Monday afternoon when 2019 Zachary High shortstop Collier Cranford committed to the Tigers. Per The Advocate:

“I figured why not,” Cranford said. “There is a great tradition and everything that goes with it, like being close to home, which will make it easy for my parents to see me play. I grew up wanting to be an LSU baseball player, and now I have that chance. I have a great relationship with the coaches, and I think it is the right decision for me.”

The 6-foot, 170-pound Cranford said NCAA runner-up Mississippi State was his other finalist. As a junior, Cranford hit .393 with five home runs and 32 RBIs for a Zachary team that was the No. 1 seed in Class 5A and lost to District 4-5A rival Central, the eventual 5A champion, in a best-of-three quarterfinal series.

Later in the day, LSU also landed a commitment from 2021 LHP Brock Selvidge from Chandler, AZ.
