The LSU coaching staff received some great news on Wednesday night when five-star tight end Arik Gilbert committed to LSU over Alabama, Clemson, Georiga, and Texas A&M.


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.

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.
