Talented four-star safety Derrick Davis Jr. announced Saturday that he is committing to LSU.

The 6-1, 195-pound prospect from Monroeville, PA, picked the Tigers over Ohio State and Penn State.


Davis Jr. is rated the No. 1 safety in the country for the class of 2021, according to ESPN. 247Sports ranks him as the No. 2 safety behind LSU commitment Sage Ryan.

The Tigers now have 22 verbal commitments for the class of 2021 with the addition of Davis Jr.

While we're having an aweful year Coach O can still recruit with the best of them. And I know so many of you fake arse fans already turned your backs on the Tigers even after a historic Championship season. Look this year is as much as Coach O and no other Coach will ever admit is a rebuilding year, we just lost way to much from last year and Covid-19 didn't help. With the experience we are getting this year and players not losing this years eligibility LSU will be back next year.

Our Safety play is at an all-time low right now and we still bring in the #1 and #2 ranked players at the position for 2021, one of which is 1200 miles away..... Amazing!

It’s easy to recruit when you put so many DBs in the league. It’s not no. 1 and no. 2 in the country at a position easy, though. That’s awesome.
