Elite four-star inside linebacker Maninoa Tufono from Honolulu, HI announced his top five schools on Wednesday and included LSU in the group.

His top schools are UCLA, Washington, LSU, Texas, and USC.


Tufono, a 6-3, 225-pound prospect, is rated the No. 5 inside linebacker in the country for the class of 2019, according to 247Sports and Rivals.

He recently visited Baton Rouge in June and described his trip and meeting with Ed Orgeron and Dave Aranda as "eye-opening."

Man if we can get this dude or N Dean that would be a sick LB haul. We just need to land 2 more top 20 DLman and a top 15 OT to go along with them. This ending could be great for LSU!!!
