LSU landed the verbal commitment of the nation’s top cornerback prospect today, as Baton Rouge’s own Derek Stingley Jr. announced his decision to re-commit to #DBU.

Dan said it on this — Stingley, from the Dunham School in Baton Rouge, is a 6-foot, 193-pound prospect reportedly laser-timed at 4.3 in the forty yard dash. Many recruiting analysts consider him the best overall player Louisiana has produced since Leonard Fournette.
Stingley was offered by Corey Raymond as a sophomore in high school, and was committed for a time before deciding to take a look at his other options. He eventually chose the Tigers over finalists Florida and Texas.
He marks the second five-star prospect in LSU’s class, and second from Baton Rouge alongside guard Kardell Thomas.
