A number of sources are reporting LSU gained its 14th commitment in the Class of 2011 on Tuesday afternoon when cornerback Jalen Collins gave the nod to the Tigers and Coach Les Miles.
Collins, listed by Scout.com as 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, becomes the second defensive back to pledge to LSU in the past week, joining White Castle’s Ronald Martin.
A transfer from DeSoto High School in Mississippi, Collins now suits up for state powerhouse Olive Branch. He was in Baton Rouge recently for the LSU Elite Camp where he undoubtedly impressed the coaching staff, including defensive backs coach Ron Cooper.
Collins is the third non-Louisiana resident to verbally commit to LSU, joining punter Dalton Botts (Moorpark, CA) and linebacker Trevon Randle (League City, TX).
Listed below is the Louisiana contingent of commtiments for the ‘11 class.
