A huge start for Ed Orgeron and staff just days before National Signing Day.

The No. 1 inside linebacker in the nation, Jacob Phillips, has announced he will flip his commitment from Oklahoma to LSU via his twitter feed. Phillips is coming fresh off his official visit last weekend, with other targets such as Willie Gay. Linebacker has been a position of scarcity for the Tigers recently on the recruiting front, and now they have a chance to make a splash on February 1st.

Will this play into LB Willie Gay’s decision? The two have proven to have a good relationship and don’t be surprised if the two link up together in Baton Rouge.
