The LSU Tigers sprung up on Friday and Saturday with two hard commits in the classes of 2017 and 2019.
Seth Stewart joined the ranks of an already loaded Class of 2017 when he announced his intentions to become a Tiger. Stewart is a native of Point Pleasant, West Virginia and is listed as a three-star recruit via 247Sports Composite Rankings. Stewart revealed the news Saturday via his personal Twitter account.

LSU’s 2017 class now ranks fifth in the nation and still third in the SEC behind Alabama and Georgia who stand at No. 1 and No. 2. Stewart is the eighth three-star player in the class assembled by Les Miles & Co. as he joins Saahdiq Charles, Myles Brennan, Stephen Guidry, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Jontre Kirklin, Aaron Moffitt and Tory Carter.
Meanwhile, Kardell Thomas, an offensive tackle from Baton Rouge, committed to the Tigers on Friday. Thomas joins Maurice Hampton and Derek Stingley as players who’ve made their verbal commitment to LSU for the 2019 class. Thomas announced his decision, like many others, on his Twitter account.

It’s tough of course to foresee the future especially with 2019 recruits. Time will tell to see if Thomas is swayed by anyone else prior to 2019 but Miles and his coaching staff appear to be set on laying the groundwork for the future in order to continue to succeed in the ravenous SEC. Thomas’ commitment starts to build towards that future.
