While many will focus on the upcoming season and the staff filling out the 2025 recruiting class, the 2026 recruiting class should start to see some commitments rolling in. The LSU Football team currently has no commitments in 20026 however, the staff will start pushing for some of the Nation's top players. The first position that deserves focus is quarterback as a great quarterback will reel in other great talents as Bryce Underwood has. Here are the three quarterbacks that LSU Football is pushing hard to land in this recruiting class:

Faizon Brandon - Five Star

Brian Kelly and Joe Sloan are pushing hard to once again land the number one quarterback in back-to-back seasons. The LSU Football team is trying hard to land Brandon after landing Bryce Underwood and Joe Sloan may be the key factor for both. The Tigers hosted Brandon at practice this Spring where he was impressed by both Joe Sloan and the LSU Facilities.

The race for the Naton's top quarterback will be intense as LSU battles Alabama, Tennessee, Ohio State, and Penn State. The LSU Tigers will host Brandon on a visit this summer on June 15th where they'll look to continue building their relationship.

As a player Brandon has everything you'd like out of a quarterback and he'd be the perfect fit for the LSU offense. Brandon is the ideal size of a pocket passer with a massive arm while having the athleticism to make plays as a rusher. As he continues to improve as a player Brandon will only get more impressive as a quarterback prospect.

Working in LSU's favor is the recent history of Jayden Daniels winning the Heisman as a dual-threat quarterback before being selected second overall in the NFL Draft. The only downside to LSU's pitch may be Bryce Underwood as Brandon would likely have to wait two seasons before taking the reins if he were to come to LSU.

Dia Bell - Four Star

Dia Bell comes from an incredible family background as the son of 12-year NBA Veteran Raja Bell with family members with backgrounds in college sports as well. Dia has long been one of the top quarterbacks in this class and is currently ranked as the fourth-ranked quarterback in the class and the 21st-ranked player overall.

The quarterback is currently between LSU Football, Ohio State, Texas, Penn State, and Miami for his commitment. While National Signing Day for the class of 2026 is a long time away, Dia Bell plans on committing either in June or July. Landing a player like Bell this early in the process could do massive things for LSU's 2026 recruiting class as they currently have no commitments.

The biggest competitor for Bell's services appears to be Texas as the four-star quarterback has an official visit lined up there in a few weeks. Joe Sloan has been massive in the recruitment of Bell and the recent success of Joe Burrow and Jayden Daniels will continue to be a massive recruiting tool.

Jonas Williams - Four Star

The LSU Football team has only handed out four scholarship offers to quarterbacks in the 2026 recruiting cycle and with Jared Curtis seemingly off the table Jonas Williams is one of three in contention for LSU. The LSU Football staff offered Williams a scholarship during his first visit to campus in April making a great impression on him.

Williams is the eighth-ranked quarterback in the recruiting class and the 130th-ranked player overall. Joe Sloan will have a massive role in this recruitment as Williams has said that the quarterbacks' coaches will be the most important in his recruitment. LSU Football has had one of the best recent histories with developing quarterbacks with Joe Burrow and Jayden Daniels both winning Heisman Trophies and becoming top picks in the NFL Draft.

The dual-threat quarterback could be a great fit in the LSU offense after it's been tailored around Jayden Daniels and will be tailored around Bryce Underwood. Williams should have at least two seasons to develop his skills behind Bryce Underwood which should help him long-term.
