Former Ohio State cornerback Sevyn Banks committed to LSU on Tuesday morning adding much-needed depth at the position.

Banks played in 36 games with 15 starts as a reliable outside corner for the Buckeyes but has dealt with injury issues between 2019 and 2020. He just recently completed his fourth season at Ohio State.

Banks is LSU's 30th commitment for the 2022 class, leaving the Tigers with two spots available to complete the class. Adding another offensive lineman and a tight end remain the priority for the last two spots.

Brian Kelly has now signed 15 transfers this offseason, which is the most in college football. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

A native of Orlando, Florida, Banks appeared in 36 games with 15 starts during his four years with the Buckeyes. He capped his career at Ohio State with 43 tackles, 3.0 tackles for loss, 13 passes defended and a pair of interceptions.

He was named honorable mention All-Big Ten honors in 2020 after leading the Buckeyes with seven pass breakups and eight passes defended.

Banks earned third-team preseason All-America honors in 2021 and was named to the watch lists for the Thorpe Award and the Nagurski Trophy last season. He appeared in nine games with six starts in 2021 and recorded eight tackles, one tackle for loss and one pass defended in helping the Buckeyes to an 11-2 overall record and a win over Utah in the Rose Bowl.

In 2020, Banks started all eight games at cornerback for the Buckeyes, helping Ohio State to the national championship game. Against Alabama in the national championship contest, he recorded a career-high seven tackles.

Banks helped the Buckeyes reach the national championship game in 2020 with four tackles, two passes defended and an interception in Ohio State’s 49-28 win over Clemson in the national semifinals.

In high school, Banks was ranked No. 58 nationally in the ESPN 300 and earned four stars from both ESPN and 247Sports. He participated in the Under Armour All-America Game as well as “The Opening”.

When will LSU stop relying on players developed by Ohio State? Bill Sherman, Hoe Burrow, and now perhaps Sevyn Banks. That’s /s Best wishes Sevyn! Go get it! Go Bucks! Go Tigers! Beat Michigan! Beat Bama!

It's proven to be a pipeline for talented players. Why would be stop when more and more players are likely to hit the transfer portal from our own team?

George Costanza approves of this based off name alone. If you know, you know.

I wonder if OSU fans will claim Sevyn two years into his pro career as well.

Boom!

How do you guys think we fill our final 2 spots? TE and OL maybe?

And there’s your starter opposite Jarrick Bernard-Converse. The biggest hole left on this roster just got filled. Kelly has done one hell of a job patching a team together for this year until he can get a full signing class of his own guys in the building.
