LSU picked up a key defensive line prospect in this early signing period when defensive tackle Nelson Jenkins faxed in his signature today.

Jenkins, from just outside of Baton Rouge, in Plaquemine, La., is a 6-3, 290-pound lineman that the Tigers fought off Alabama to keep in the fold in this cycle.

He is a composite three-star recruit that attended The Opening last summer, but battled injuries through his senior year at Plaquemine High School.
