Ed Orgeron and the LSU coaching staff received some great news on Friday afternoon when elite safety Jacoby Matthews announced his commitment to the Tigers.

Matthews, a five-star prospect from Ponchatoula, LA (Ponchatoula) chose LSU over Alabama, Georiga, Mississippi State, Texas, Oklahoma, and others.

The 6-2, 210-pound athlete is rated the No. 1 safety in the country and No. 1 player from the state of Louisiana for the class of 2022, according to Rivals. His verbal pledge gives LSU 13 commitments for the class.

Hell Yeah!!! The great Matthews is an instant starter, the kid is that good! He and the other 5-star safety(Sorry, forget his name as of this moment) they signed in the 2021 class will make quite a tandem.
