With his track record of developing some of the best defensive linemen on the planet, it’s no surprise that Ed Orgeron has LSU in the top five for the No. 2 defensive tackle in the class of 2018: St. Louis’ Michael Thompson

The Tigers will battle it out with Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan and the home-state Missouri Tigers. Thompson is 6-3, 290-pounds and a composite four-star according to 247 Sports. He visited LSU in the spring for one of the program’s junior days, and most expect him to take an official visit to Baton Rouge again in the fall.
