What LSU football fans did not get for Christmas

It’s Christmas Day and unfortunately, Santa forgot to put some things under the trees in LSU football fans’ homes. From new coaches to Notre Dame fan deterrent, we’re looking over the Death Valley Voice christmas wishlist.

3. We asked for a five star recruit in the 2024 LSU football class

We are big fans of the job Brian Kelly did to put together the 2024 LSU football class. Currently ranked 9th by On3, the next wave of Tigers addresses several positional needs and includes 9 of the top 10 high school players in Louisiana.

However, Kelly’s class lacks a marquee player. Thus, we asked Santa to deliver a five-star recruit for Christmas. None appeared under the tree.

We’re the first to advise against judging recruiting classes based on the number of stars players hold. The recruiting stars system is extremely subjective and heavily influenced by geography. For example, there’s an argument that the best four star prospects in Louisiana would be five star players in other states.

Regardless, we wanted Santa to top off Kelly’s 2024 class with a five star recruit similar to Harold Perkins headlining the 2023 LSU football recruiting class. Kris Kringle did not deliver.
