RECRUITING UPDATE: Reid Ferguson
Tigers nab long snapper as 15th 2012 commitment
Several recruiting websites are reporting that the Tigers have received a verbal commitment from offensive lineman and long snapper Reid Ferguson.
The Buford, Ga. native is LSU’s 15th verbal commitment in its 2012 class.
He has been a student of Chris Rubio Long Snapping since 2007, and by all accounts, he is one of the best long snappers in the nation.
The 6-2, 235-pound athlete also received scholarship offers from Tennessee and San Diego State before committing to the Tigers Monday.
Long snapper appears to be a position of need as three of four currently on LSU’s roster are upperclassmen, including seniors Joey Crappell and Alex Russian. That leaves brothers Austin and Hunter Kinchen as LSU’s only long snappers by the time Ferguson gets to campus in 2012.
