SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The former Landers athlete of the week Joseph Evans made it official and signed with the LSU Tigers. Joseph Evans is a 300 pound man that couldn’t wait to get to work. LSU locked in at least 17 guys for this years class. That put them in the top five heading into next months final recruiting period according to 247sports.
“Last year we had so many holes to fill and I just looked at the position and I looked at the player and said can that guy get us better? There were so many holes on the line, we had to take transfers and get a new kicker and a new quarterback. Now it wasn’t just necessarily take the player that makes us better, but let me get the best player and that’s what we went after," said LSU Head CoachCoach Ed Orgeron.
