Elite four-star defensive end Jarell Cherry from Dallas, TX officially signed with LSU on Friday afternoon and is expected to enroll early this January.

The LSU coaching staff wraps up the early signing day period by landing 21 signees for the class of 2018.


Cherry, a 6-3, 225-pound prospect from Carter HS is rated the No. 7 weakside defensive end in the country and the No. 13 overall player from the state of Texas for the class of 2018, according to Rivals.

He signed with the Tigers over offers from Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and Alabama.

I think it’s safe to say that all the early signees were rock solid Tigers from the get go! Awesome! We now have 21 recruits (all at positions of need), signed, sealed and delivered! Great job by O and the entire coaching staff for getting it done! I fully expect to land a few more highly rated guys on NSD! This class will be Top 5 when all is said and done! Welcome, Jarell!

Good needs class, especially along the lines. But we really have no chance to finish in the Top 5.

I seriously doubt this class can even crack the top 8-10. Its a class thats targeted to positions of need - Heavy on both lines and then Athletes and skill positions (WR & RB) but its not a flashy group so itll likely land in the 12-15ish spot which certainly isn't bad at all, just not elite. That being said it may be one of the most important classes LSU has signed when these recruits are Jr's and Sr's. CEO and staff are off to an excellent start with regard to recruiting, especially in state guys. Geaux Tigers!!!!

You know what I really, really, really love about this early signing class? After that ridiculousness last year with Alabama stealing all those recruits from Louisiana Coach O said enough is enough. I don't care how hard Nick Saban and his band of thieves try to pry the Tigers commits from LSU they couldn't and trust me they came hard at a bunch of them and didn't get one. Phenomenal job by Coach O and his crew finally the bleeding to Bama has stopped and a real fence is being put up around Louisiana and LSU can start talking about competing for Natty's. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN?????????

You summed it up, King Nola! I think Tiger Nation is starting to see the value that Coach O brings to the program. He is an elite recruiter and has the staff to lock down the state! Closing the gap on Bama!

Who writes these headlines? Could have been: "Tigers finishes early signing period with a Cherry on top!"

Great job Coach O!You said you were gonna keep guys home and you have done so! Keep showing that pride for not only LSU, but Louisiana as a whole. All them CEO haters crawled back under thier rocks. Hope they stay there!

Seems like Coach O has his head on straight for the recruiting process...lots of haters were panicking over the de-commits but hey, that happens to all teams. Coach has to sell LSU to these young prospects until we get on top again..then LSU will sell itself!

This guy is a beast

He already runs a 4.64. This means that, while smaller, he is a lot quicker than Arden Key was as a freshman.
