LSU Football: Tigers among top schools for elite safety

LSU Football is in the mix to land an elite safety from Georgia.

LSU football is among the top schools for an elite 2023 four-star safety from Georgia.

Micahel Daugherty revealed his top 10 schools recently and the Tigers made the cut, along with Auburn, Cincinnati, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Iowa State, Oregon, Texas, and USC.

Daugherty, 6-foot/175 lbs from Loganville, GA, is rated by 247Sports as the No. 6 player in the state of Georgia and the No. 11 safety in the nation.

He’s also rated as the No. 48 overall 2023 recruit in the nation.

Where does LSU football stand?

It’s certainly way too early to make any sort of prediction for Daugherty, who is still in the early stages of his recruitment.

For now, however, it doesn’t appear that LSU has done anything to land at the top of Daugherty’s list.

Of course, it doesn’t sound like any of the schools in Daugherty’s top ten have separated themselves.

“This list really tells about the schools I have had good contact with right now,” said Daugherty to Rivals this week. “With these schools, I know I can call and have conversation with about football and the overall program.”

While there’s still a long way to go until Daugherty signs, there’s a decent chance he commits at some point in 2021.

“I really don’t know when yet. I could wait and see who really starts to call and recruit me on September 1, but I could commit earlier than that,” said Daugherty

“I am just taking it day by day right now. It could really happen at any time.”

Daugherty is obviously a player the Tigers would love to land. LSU is widely considered “DBU” by recruits, so I would expect the Tigers to be a big factor for the talented Georgia native.
