While in the midst of trying to build out the 2025 recruiting class the LSU Football team is also looking to build its 2026 and 2027 classes through recruiting camps and unofficial visits. This weekend all eyes were on the young quarterbacks at the 7 on 7 tournament as 2026 QBs Dia Bell, Brady Hart, and Luke Fahey threw while 2027 QB Malachi Zeigler left the weekend as a massive winner.

This weekend, LSU extended an offer to a linebacker who comes from practically one of the LSU football first families. 2026 linebacker Zach Weeks received an offer this week the name is familiar to those not in touch with recruiting as Zach's brothers West and Whit Weeks both currently play for Brian Kelly.

Like his brothers, the youngest Weeks also plays linebacker and will likely play that position at the college level. On3 ranks Zach Weeks as the 26th best linebacker in the class and the 38th best recruit out of Georgia. If Weeks commits to LSU, we may get to see him play with Whit while West is in his final season.

As a Sophomore this past season, Weeks had an impressive season racking up 102 tackles with a sack, forced fumble, and an interception.

Building a 2026 Recruiting Class

While LSU currently has the second-ranked recruiting class in the 2025 recruiting cycle, its 2026 recruiting class needs work as it currently holds no commitments. This summer the staff will start to build strong bonds as 2026 recruits will come to campus every week to partake in camps while they'll definitely take visits in the fall. The biggest positive working for LSU is that the 2026 class of in-state recruits may be the strongest of any state in 2026. Brian Kelly and his staff have done an incredibly job with keeping top talent at home and if they do so they'll have a strong chance to land the Nations top recruiting class.
