BOOM! Ed Orgeron and the Tigers have landed another consensus Top 100 quarterback, this time for the 2022 cycle, with St. Thomas More QB Walker Howard.

According to 247Sports’ Composite, Howard is rated the No. 3 pro-style QB for the 2022 class, choosing LSU over Alabama, Texas A&M, TCU, and a handful of other nationally-ranked programs.

Howard’s father, Jamie, played quarterback at LSU from 1992-95, and his two older sisters currently attend the University. He posted a heartfelt commitment video on Friday morning dedicating his college decision to his late-mom Kathryn, who was also an LSU graduate.

“I want to thank you for making me the man I am today,” Howard said to his mother in the video. “I know you are smiling down on me. I want to thank you so much for helping me make the hardest decision of my life.”
