This weekend was another massive recruiting weekend for the LSU Football team as it hosted talented players in the 2025, 2026, and 2027 recruiting classes on both official visits and for recruiting camp. The headliners of this week's class were in the secondary including LSU commit Charles Ross. Ross is a hybrid linebacker and safety ranked as the 98th overall player in this recruiting class.

As LSU looks to fend off schools vying for the talented defender it called in another LSU legend. Over the first two weekends of the Summer, LSU called on Patrick Peterson to meet with defensive backs headlined by DJ Pickett and Ja'Marr Chase to help with five-star receiver Dakorien Moore.

Meeting with Charles Ross to start his weekend in Baton Rouge was former LSU defender and current ESPN analyst Ryan Clark. Clark has a special tie to this recruiting class as he serves as the head coach for Fleaux 7 on 7 coaching future LSU Tigers in the 7 on 7 circuit.

Getting players like Ryan Clark to help the current regime on the recruiting trail is a massive advantage. The former players get to share with the players what LSU can do to get players into the NFL and specifically in Clark's case the opportunities available to players after their playing career.

Who may be next to come to Baton Rouge?

Next weeks recruiting visitor class will be headlined by defensive linemen and defensive backs which is where the next LSU alumni may come from. The best defensive back to get on campus would be Tyrann Mathieu as he's a player many of these recruits grew up watching. If LSU wants to bring back a defensive lineman Marcus Spears, Booger McFarland, and Kyle Williams would all be strong options that could resonate with recruits.
