Five-star 2020 CB Elias Ricks commits to LSU

Ed Orgeron and his staff received quite the Christmas present.

Five-star cornerback Elias Ricks, considered the best cornerback in the 2020 class, announced his commitment to LSU in a tweet on Tuesday afternoon. The news comes less than a week after LSU signed Derek Stingley Jr., the No. 1 cornerback in the 2019 class.

“I am ready for this huge decision,” Ricks wrote in his Twitter post. “This is my moment. This is my time. I dreamed of this since I was a baby boy, and now to think I’m really here is unreal.”

The 6-2, 180-pound cornerback ranks as the No. 9 overall prospect in the country, No. 1 cornerback in the country and No. 3 prospect in California, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings. The Santa Ana native plays for Mater Dei High School.

LSU now holds nine commitments for 2020 and a class that ranks second nationally, according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Only Alabama, which has 11 commitments, is ahead of LSU in 2020 at this point.
