John Emery Jr. Signs with LSU

Gifted running back brings elite talent back to LSU’s backfield.


LSU locked up their star back of the future when John Emery signed his LOI to LSU this afternoon. Emery, a five-star running back, at times looked destined to leave the state, even verbally committing to Georgia for a spell. Nevertheless, Mickey Joseph and Tommie Robinson stuck on him and Emery eventually re-opened his commitment and then ultimately pledged to LSU and hasn’t looked back.

Emery Jr. is the second-ranked tailback in the nation, and brings to LSU a multi-threat skillset which should make him a weapon in the rushing and passing games.
