Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports is reporting that kicker Connor Culp from Arizona has committed to LSU on full athletic scholarship for 2016.

We met Connor at the Vegas XXV Prep Camp in January of 2015. He quickly made a name for himself. A week later in Las Vegas, he was named to the most elite group of kickers, The “TOP 12". He is now the #4 ranked kicker in the United States. Here is a look at his accomplishments so far this year.

Connor Culp – 2015 Accomplishments:
Member of the “TOP 12"
2015 Vegas XXV Class of 2016 Kickoff Champion
2015 Vegas XXVI Prep Camp Overall Champion
2015 Vegas XXVI Prep Camp Field Goal Champion
2015 Vegas XXVI Prep Camp Kickoff Champion
2015 Vegas XXVI Class of 2016 Field Goal Champion
2015 Vegas XXVI Field Goal Finalist (Final 2)
2015 “TOP 12" & “Event Elite” Kickoff Champion

Culp is rated the No. 5 place kicker in the country for the class of 2016, according to 247 Composite Rankings.

For one I do not consider a FG kicker a special teams player - a good kicker is a major team element. More important than a ko team blocker or return man. Ditto for a great punter - an extreme necessity - a defensive weapon. The FG kicker is a great offensive weapon under, at times, tremendous pressure to be successful.

"How many kickers does Miles need?"

He's just looking for the right successor to Jordan Jefferson.

Added Gamble to a scholarship last year and he will never be a regular field goal kicker. Isnt LSU's current kicker a WALK-ON? How many kickers does Miles need?
