Gilbert, a 6-5, 253-pound prospect from Marietta, GA (Marietta HS) is rated the No. 1 tight end in the country for the class of 2020 and the No. 2 overall player from the state of Georgia, according to 247 Sports and Rivals.


LSU now has 22 verbal commitments for the class of 2020 with the addition of Gilbert.

Are you telling me a child didn't do what some adults were hoping, and now they're "MELT"ing? Strange times we live in, man.

Aww. Mom wanted him to stay home. She handled it well.

Handled it better than Landon Collins's family did back in 2012. Nice to be on this side of it this time, though. I haven't forgotten how much it sucks to have a great recruit pull the rug out from under you.

Who is your QB next year?

Who is your QB? Fromm is prob gone and your best QB is playing at another school. LSU loaded at WR, most of OL is back and a great set of RBs. QB position isn’t too shabby either.
