Tiger fans got some extra Christmas cheer today with a major verbal commitment of Class of 2020 five-star cornerback Elias Ricks.
Ricks is a 6-2, 180-pound prospect out of Southern California prep powerhouse Mater Dei. He unofficially visited LSU for a game this season, and reportedly fell in love with the program.
He made some headlines in November with a three-pick-six game for Mater Dei against fellow Cali power Centennial High.
Obviously, this is still a long way out, and most will be skeptical of a California recruit coming across the country, but regardless, this is a huge headline for the program, and a big boost for LSU’s 2020 class, which is currently ranked second in the nation.
