The list of recruits visiting LSU this week looks like a relative who’s who of the top recruits in the nation with five, five-star prospects highlighted by newly minted top overall recruit in the 247Sports composite rankings, Leonard Fournette, two four-star recruits and one three-star.

Fournette is the marquee name and has been a heavy lean to LSU essentially since his first carry at St. Augustine in New Orleans a few years ago. All signs continue to point to the best running back recruit since Adrian Peterson to commit to LSU.
