2019 4-stars Devonta Lee, Jay Ward commit to LSU

The Tigers capped off a solid class with a big National Signing Day

NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Arkansas Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

An already very good Class of 2019 for the LSU Tigers got even better on National Signing Day, when four-star WR Devonta Lee and four-star CB Jay Ward.

Lee, from Amite, LA, was the first of the two to announce. He was between LSU, Texas A&M, Kentucky, Auburn, and Penn State, and chose the in-state Tigers.

Lee is a great talent on both sides of the ball, and played both ways in high school (as you can see in his Hudl video below) but it seems like he’ll be playing wide receiver alongside his best friend and fellow LSU commit Trey Palmer.

Head coach Ed Orgeron had high praises for Lee, as well.

While it was fairly expected that Lee would end up at LSU, Ward, on the other hand, was a bit of a surprise. It seemed as though Kentucky (where Ward had previously committed before reopening his recruitment) was the favorite for the four-star corner from Moultrie, GA .

Unsurprisingly, Orgeron was very complimentary towards Ward as well.
