LSU football recently offered 2023 defenisve back Tristen Sion.

And the Tigers should be the early favorites to land him.

Sion, 6-foot-1/179 lbs from Tallahassee, FL (James Rickards), hasn’t been rated yet by the major recruiting services, but he’s already receiving heavy interest from some of the premier college football programs in the nation.

Mississippi State, Michigan State, Baylor, Wisconsin, and Missouri are among the other programs that have offered Sion. He’s also received interest from Alabama, Florida, and Florida State.

Why LSU football is the early favorite to land Tristen Sion

It wouldn’t be unwise to think that Florida State would be the team to beat for a player from Tallahassee.

But that’s not the case when it comes to Sion.

That’s because Sion is originally from Louisiana. He moved to Florida just before his teenage years.

For that reason, the offer from LSU holds special importance to Sion.

“It means a lot because I’m from Louisiana,” said Sion to Rivals this week.

Sion, however, isn’t ready to commit just yet.

“(Committing) of course crossed my mind, but I feel like right now I don’t think I’m ready,” said Sion. “I still have time. I want to play it through and see everything.”

It’s definitely smart of Sion to take his time — there’s no need for a 2023 recruit to rush into anything.

But I’d say it’s highly likely that LSU ends up landing the talented defensive back.

Sion clearly loves his home state. He told Rivals that he misses “everything” about Louisiana, which makes it sound like he desperately wants to return to the Boot.
