A major recruit is planning on joining family in Baton Rouge.
Jake Johnson, the nation's top-rated tight end, announced Thursday afternoon he is committed to LSU's 2022 recruiting class. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound four-star is the younger brother of LSU quarterback Max Johnson, who led the Tigers to dramatic victories in the final two games of his freshman season.
Johnson is the nation's No. 1 tight end of the 2022 class, according to 247Sports, and he also held offers from Alabama, Clemson and Michigan. LSU now has 12 commitments to its class, which ranks third nationally behind Georgia and Ohio State.
