Lost in the shuffle of a big game-day Saturday, LSU picked up yet another big commitment for the 2020 recruiting class in four-star safety Malcolm Greene out of Virginia.
Greene, 5-10, 181 pounds, officially visited for the Florida game along with superstud Arik Gilbert, and decided to jump on board and make things official two weeks later. He’s currently rated as the No. 314 prospect in the country and has an offer list that includes Clemson, Florida and Michigan among others.
Greene looks more like the typical true safety, comfortable playing on the hash and reading the quarterback and receivers to break on the football. Which is a style LSU has been lacking as of late, having more box-style safeties like Grant Delpit and JaCoby Stevens, or converted cornerbacks like Todd Harris.
He marks the 23rd commitment in this class and the fifth player from the Virginia/Maryland region, joining fellow safety Jordan Toles, end/linebacker Demon Clowney, linebacker Antoine Sampah and receiver Rakim Jarrett.
We’ll have more on what’s next for this class, but with some big-name recruits at major need positions still out there, it’s safety to say that there will continue to be more shuffling of LSU’s commitment list with just two spots open at the moment. Ed Orgeron’s got what you call a good problem right now; he has a top-five team that is attracting some of the best players from across the country, to the point that they are more than likely going to have to turn some away.
