Jazz Ferguson is a Tiger!

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Like David Ducre earlier, Ferguson didn't waste any time after receiving an offer over the weekend at Boys from the Boot, and committed this afternoon to LSU.

LSU handed out a number of offers to a number of players this past weekend at their Boys from the Boot camp. So far, it's paid off quite a bit. After landing an offer earlier in the late morning/early afternoon from No. 1 fullback David Ducre they've now landed a commitment from four-star wide receiver Jazz Ferguson. Ferguson was a wideout they had shown quite a bit of interest in, and then finally extended an offer this past weekend. Ferguson had lots of offers from different smaller schools, but also Ole Miss and Mississippi State and was recruited by Alabama and Florida State. Ferguson is extremely athletic for his size, and it's not sure if he'll be used in a different role than a conventional WR, but he's still a big landed commit for the Tigers.

What is LSU getting


As the clip shows, Ferguson is just such a match-up nightmare in so many ways. In the beginning of the video, he's catching a ball out in the flat and using his speed and outrunning guys. A bit later, he's catching a jumping ball. He's 6'5". He's out muscling guys. He's 205 lb. Ferguson just has that ability to create so much havoc and trouble for CB's. There's no ideal way to deal with him. It's why, even if he isn't a very crisp route runner when he gets on campus, or does the little things that are important, you have raw physical gifts that make him a weapon. As analysts like to say with basketball players, "he has stuff you can't teach." Ferguson has some of those tools. It's why he probably was recruited very early on by LSU and Cam Cameron and Adam Henry in particular. He's a guy that has a lot of potential. He's a real guy Cameron can his in his gameplans when he gets to LSU.

This is the 9th commit to the LSU class, and for what it's worth this early, LSU has jumped to the top of 247's class rankings. Unlike last year, when LSU had to wait for a lot of commits in December, January obviously with all that took place on January 2nd, and even multiple in February, LSU is starting thick and fast this year. They're landing a lot of talented guys early like Nick Brossette and now Jazz Ferguson, and some highly touted prospects like Kevin Toliver II and Maea Teuhema. It's still very early in the 2015 class, but LSU is making some big ground early, and I'd expect there to be more.
