Jay Ward Signs With LSU

Three-star cornerback pulls a signing day surprise.

LSU picked up an unexpected name on National Signing Day 2019 in defensive back Jay Ward, who signed with the Tigers.

A composite three-star prospect from Moultrie, Ga., Ward had previously committed to Kentucky, and was expected to sign there. But with a spot open, the Tigers gave him a call and convinced him to change his mind late in the process.

Ward is a 6-1, 175-pound prospect, who also considered Florida State and Texas A&M in the process.
