LSU football will put the finishing touches on their 2021 recruiting class on Wednesday (National Signing Day) and turn their focus to the 2022 recruiting class.

But just because the Tigers’ main focus will be on the 2022 class, doesn’t mean they’re ignoring the 2023 class.

LSU, like any elite program, is already evaluating 2023 recruits. They’re handing out a few offers, too.

This week, the Tigers extended an offer to 2023 running back Trey Holly, a Farmerville, LA native.

LSU football should be the favorite for Trey Holly

It’s obviously very early in Holly’s recruitment, but I think it’s safe to say that LSU is going to be the favorite here.

Holly, who rushed for over 2,700 yards as a sophomore in high school, recently spoke to Rivals about his recruitment.

And it’s clear that LSU means a lot to him.

“It means a lot because they’ve been one of my favorite schools, so it was pretty emotional for me and for my family,” said Holly.

The talented running back, who hasn’t been rated by the major recruiting services yet, is also being recruited hard by Purdue and Arkansas. More programs will likely join the mix in the coming months.

Ultimately, though, it’s hard to imagine Holly landing anywhere but Baton Rouge.

We all know that Ed Orgeron loves locking down in-state recruits. And the Tigers didn’t waste any time letting Holly know he’s wanted at LSU.

I’m sure Holly will do his due diligence and take his time, but I’ll be shocked if he’s not playing for the Tigers in a couple of years.
