So the #1 ILB in the class is a 4 star? I don't get this star rating system.

He is a 5 star according to rivals. However I wouldn't put to much stock in ratings. That's why teams have "camps" so they can properly evaluate a kid.

Great commitment. This news has made my day. Oaklahoma fans are bashing him on Twitter right now. He isn't even from Oaklahoma tho. And they acting like he is leaving home. He from Tennessee. Go figure!

Fantastic news boys and girls. Now let's ride this positive High and go get a Damn running back who has the chest to follow a couple All Americans footsteps to complete this class.

Don't let anyone tell you that "commitments" dont mean anything anymore. That is only true when someone decommits from LSU. This scenario was a young man making a wise decision. Geaux Tigers.

Like Pete Carroll said: Ed Orgeron is the best closer in the nation! More to come! Obviously, all of the coaches are great recruiters. That's why Les hired them, and that's why O's keeping em! Welcome Jacob!
