BOOM! LSU’s 2021 class picked up a major commitment on Saturday with five-star safety Sage Ryan out of Lafayette, Louisiana.
Ryan chose the Tigers over Alabama and Clemson, putting to rest a back and forth recruitment. He’s rated the No. 1 safety in the country and the No. 2 overall prospect in the state of Louisiana, according to 247Sports‘ rankings.
“Versatile, athletic football player with functional size that could translate to cornerback, safety, nickel, receiver, or even running back,” 247Sports National Analyst Gabe Brooks wrote in his evaluation. “Not overly tall, but possesses adequate height and encouraging bulk relative to position and age. Electric athlete with combine-verified athleticism. Speed, explosiveness, and fluidity manifest on the field.”
This verbal pledge has LSU’s 2021 class ranked No. 4 overall with 20 commits.
