July Fourth Weekend has slowly turned into a college football recruiting holiday as several of the Nation's top recruits plan to announce their commitments on July 4th and the days following. The LSU Tigers entered the weekend with two top targets planning to announce their plans on Thursday while another two would commit on Friday. The Tigers kicked off the long holiday weekend by adding four-star defensive tackle Zion Williams early into July Fourth while Dakorien Moore committed to Oregon at night.

The LSU Tigers have now landed a second defensive tackle out of Texas as they've flipped Texas Longhorns commit Brandon Brown. Brown is ranked by On3 as a four-star recruit and the 20th ranked defensive tackle in the class as the 218th ranked player in the country.

The Tigers had a massive leg up in the recruitment of Brandon Brown thanks to defensive line coach Bo Davis. While coaching at Texas, Davis recruited Brown and got him to commit to Texas and once he landed at LSU he continued to push for Brandon Brown now getting him on board.

The defensive line in this recruiting class is really coming together with Brandon Brown, Zion Williams, and Jesse Harrold on board. The Tigers have another massive commitment to watch today as top-100 recruit edge rusher Damien Shanklin announces his commitment at 4:30 PM CT which would really bolster this recruiting class.

Only a few positions of concern left in this recruiting class

Entering the holiday weekend, the LSU Football team has three massive positions of concern in this recruiting class as the defensive line, secondary, and receiver groups need commitments. Thus far LSU is erasing defensive line from those concerns especially if they land Damien Shanklin later today. Wide Receiver remains a massive concern as Dakorien Moore committed to Oregon and Cortez Mills committed to Oklahoma a few days ago. Defensive back may also leave the area of concern in a few weeks as DJ Pickett, Jhase Thomas, and CJ Jimcoily are all set to commit this month with LSU being in contention for all three.
