After Tae Provens committed on Saturday, LSU lands another 2018 commit on Sunday in the form of three-star tight end Zach Sheffer.
Sheffer, a native of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, announced the move on his Twitter account.
I'm committed! Beach➡️Bayou @Coach_EdOrgeron @LSUfootball @HamiltonESPN @BillyEmbody @samspiegs @ScarboroughMike @wwbrown19 @JustinBarneyTU pic.twitter.com/XCT5k8DFkw— Zach Sheffer (@zachsheffer) June 25, 2017
The 6-foot-3, 230-pound tight end was thought to be headed to Ohio State based on his Crystal Ball, but Sheffer instead has decided to go to Baton Rouge instead of Columbus. He now gives LSU 21 commits in 2018, keeping them atop the SEC and maintaining their standing at 3rd in the country behind OSU and Miami.
Sheffer is the second tight end to commit to LSU for 2018. Dantreize Scott, a fellow three-star tight end from Ferriday, Louisiana, was the first tight end of the bunch. Sheffer gives the Tigers two hefty tight ends as both he and Scott are listed at 6-foot-3 and 6-foot-5 respectively.
He’s the third commit from Florida, joining Lehigh Acres’ Chris Curry, a three-star running back, and Hialeah’s Nadab Joseph, a four-star safety as Sunshine State commits for the Fighting Tigers.
The Nease Panthers tight end checks in at No. 92 among Florida recruits, 26th among tight ends and is listed 578th overall.
