The final big piece of a landmark Louisiana defensive line haul for the 2020 recruiting cycle just called his shot, as Alexandria nose tackle Jacobian Guillory verbally committed to LSU.
Guillory is a 6-2, 330-pound nose tackle out of Alexandria, and a composite four-star prospect. He is the No. 15 defensive tackle prospect in the 2020 class and one of four Louisiana defensive lineman in the crop, with fellow LSU commitments Jaquelin Roy and Jalen Lee and former Tiger pledge Patrick Jenkins (now committed to TCU).
The Tigers beat out Alabama for the massive tackle, who is also a state shot-put champion with some absurd power-lifting numbers: 740-pound squat, 370 bench, 625 deadlift. Guillory visited Tuscaloosa several times, but after making official visits to both during the spring recruiting period, signs began to shift pointing towards the Tigers. Guillory actually watched yesterday’s Tiger victory IN Bryant-Denny Stadium, on an unofficial visit.
Obviously the power jumps off the page, and it’s what you’d expect with those numbers. And playing against high-school players. Guillory was a big piece of this class — which at 25 commitments now, is still firmly second in the country — one of the few players left on LSU’s board with a spot more or less reserved. He also joins defensive linemen Eric Taylor and CamRon Jackson in the class. Although many believe Jackson winds up on the offensive line, if he still signs. Yes, more attrition is likely still coming.
Not a bad way to wake up after a huge Saturday, though.
