Three-star linebacker Xavier Atkins from Jonesboro, La. announced his verbal pledge to LSU on Tuesday after de-committing from Missouri on Monday.

The 6-0, 200-pound linebacker from Jonesboro-Hodge HS is LSU's second commit for the class of 2024, joining Texas safety Maurice Williams.

The people bitching about this kid only being a 3* is just proof that those type of idiots don’t know jack shite about recruiting. These 3* players will likely be 4*’s by the time they actually sign but don’t let facts & past examples ruin ur chance to shite on LSU & BK!!!

I don’t put too much stock into stars. Least you forget one of the greatest Tiger receivers Justin Jefferson was a 3 star.

Is a 3 star really worthy of their own articles?

Why are we getting orgasmic about a kid who has not even played his junior season in high school yet?

Who is putting these pictures up? This one looks like he has the squirts. Yesterday the kid who committed with number 15 on looked like the small 15 was sniffing the bigger 15s arse.

Ya know, if you guys didn't respond to the obvious trolls, they'd get bored and go away. Just saying.

2 3 stars for 2023, and 1 for 2024
This guy just wrapped up his sophomore season
He has a legitimate shot to be a 4 star

He was waiting on an LSU offer. He's all LSU.

@offshoretrash I hear you, but he had plenty of time to wait. Why commit anywhere early?

He wants to go to LSU, but previous staff would not give him the time of day!

Perhaps he has time to rise to at least a 4* by 2024?
