ESPN released their "post-signing day, way-too-early Top 25" and pegged LSU at No. 9.

The Tigers were ranked in No. 15 in the ESPN's first edition of the "Way-Too-Early Top 25" and moved up to No. 9 because of the LSU's No. 7 signing class and the addition of new offensive coordinator Matt Canada.

9. LSU
2016 record: 8-4, 5-3 SEC
First Way-Too-Early ranking: 15
Returning starters: 7 offense, 5 defense, 1 special teams

Key losses: RB Leonard Fournette, WR Travin Dural, C Ethan Pocic, G Josh Boutte, TE Colin Jeter, DE Lewis Neal, DT Davon Godchaux, LB Tashawn Bower, LB Duke Riley, S Jamal Adams, CB Tre'Davious White, WR Malachi Dupre

Outlook: The Tigers landed another top-10 recruiting class, their ninth in the past 12 years. Wooing top players to LSU was never a problem under former coach Les Miles, and new coach Ed Orgeron is also regarded as a top recruiter. Orgeron's primary focus is on improving LSU's passing game. The Tigers signed two quarterbacks -- No. 4 pocket passer Myles Brennan and No. 5 dual-threat passer Lowell Narcisse -- to compete with returning starter Danny Etling. Former Pitt offensive coordinator Matt Canada takes control of the offense, and he figures to install a system with a much faster tempo and more diversity.
