LSU's been on a recruiting hot streak the last few months that has not only skyrocketed the 2021 class up the recruiting ranks but challenging for the top class in the country.

The Tigers have picked up 12 commitments since the start of April and don't seem to be showing any signs of slowing down either. The class has predominantly been centered around the defensive line and receiver. At receiver, electric receivers JoJo Earle, Deion Smith and Chris Hilton is one of the top position groups in the country.

On the defensive line, Landon Jackson, Saivion Jones, Keanu Koht, Naquan Brown and Anthony Hundley mark the beginnings of a strong effort up front. 

With 16 total commits and just 10 spots remaining in the class, LSU coach Ed Orgeron said the recruiting class will continue to focus on the defensive and offensive lines as well as the running back and safety positions. The offensive line in particular will be interesting to watch as LSU is in on a number high profile targets and are looking for a high-profile target to pair with tackle Garrett Dellinger.

Just three of the 16 commitments are from the state of Louisiana, expect the Tigers to focus primarily on some of the big name in-state prospects. As SI All-American roles out its candidates, here are the LSU commits and targets the Tigers will be pursuing in the coming weeks and months.
