Les Miles National Signing Day Press Conference (Video)

The LSU Tigers has the best signing class in the Les Miles era when they wrapped up national signing day on Wednesday with 23 commitments, including the top player in the nation in Leonard Fournette and signing day addition Malachi Dupre.

When all the announcements were completed and the letter of intents were signed and delivered, Miles spoke about this year’s haul that featured a nice collection of in-state talent like Fournette and Dupre but also top out of state recruits like Jamal Adams and Ed Paris from Texas and five-star linebacker Clifton Garrett from Illinois.

“This class is a mix of speed, size and strength,” Miles said. “It’s an opportunity to replace guys that have graduated from college and replace those juniors that in three years have gone on to the NFL.”

With a mass exodus of underclassmen leaving LSU for the second year in a row many of these recruits will be in position to earn significant playing time as freshmen. In particular, each of these five aforementioned names are good candidates to not only see significant playing time, but to also start and start early.
