LSU currently has 18 verbal commitments on the record, giving the Tigers the No. 2 recruiting class in the 2016 cycle. During a rotary club speech this afternoon, Les Miles revealed that the Tigers are actually farther along in this recruiting cycle than anyone knows. According to Miles, three players have silently committed to the program, but we haven't learned about them yet.
With the additional three recruits, assuming they're ranked about as highly as LSU's other 2016 guys, the Tigers might have what it takes to jump Ohio State and take the top spot again. We'll find out as soon as the commitments become public knowledge.
