BREAKING: LSU lands McClendon6 25 18 TK McClendon

The LSU football staff added commitment No. 14 on Friday morning when Alabama four-star quarterback Peter Parrish committed to the Tigers.

On Friday evening, the staff welcomed in another commitment, this time from Copiah-Lincoln Community College tight end TK McClendon, a source confirmed with the Geaux247 staff. At 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, McClendon had three catches for 63 yards and a touchdown for Copiah-Lincoln as a freshman last fall.

McClendon is originally from Soperton, Ga., where he attended Treutlen High.

McClendon was impressive during workouts at Friday's Elite Camp in Baton Rouge, seeing time as both a route runner and blocker, going through a number of position drills with head coach Ed Orgeron and offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger.

The commitment is the 15th for the Tigers in the 2019 class. McClendon is the first tight end commitment on board with the Tigers for the 2019 class, though the staff is still targeting Ruston's Ray Parker, a tight end/offensive tackle prospect who was also in attendance at camp on Friday. 

This is the second year in a row the Tigers signed a JUCO prospect out of Copiah-Lincoln. In the 2018 cycle last year, LSU locked in four-star linebacker Travez Moore. The LSU staff signed three total JUCO prospects in last year's cycle with Moore, offensive guard Damien Lewis and offensive tackle Badara Traore. All three were early enrollees for the program in January.

LSU's staff has been picking up steam on the recruiting trail in recent weeks, locking in commitments from Parrish and McClendon on Saturday and Derek Stingley Jr. on Wednesday, which pushed the class ranking up to No. 7 in the country. With the addition of McClendon, who is currently unranked by any services after two semesters at the JUCO level, the Tigers will likely move to the No. 6 class in the country, passing up Georgia.(Article and Photo Courtesy of 247 Sports)
