Garrett Brumfield Commits to LSU: What 4-Star OL Brings to Tigers
Gary Laney of ESPN.com reports on the commitment:
Garrett Brumfield (Baton Rouge, La./University Lab) has spent his high school career on LSU's campus.
He'll stay there for college.
The ESPN 150 offensive lineman, whose high school is on LSU's campus, committed to the Tigers on Saturday after LSU's spring game, giving LSU its ninth commitment for the 2014 class.
As Laney reported, Brumfeld is from Baton Rouge, LA and he goes to University Lab. For those who don't know the significance of that statement, University Lab was established by LSU as a K-12 college prep school and it's been operating under LSU's banner for almost 100 years.
The kicker is, the last big-time recruit to come out of University Lab was 2013 4-star defensive end Tim Williams, and he chose to go to Alabama.
Landing Brumfield is just as much as a statement by LSU as is it an important pickup. Highly ranked recruits that go to University Lab should be major LSU leans and the Tigers need to capitalize.
They missed out on Williams last year, but that isn't the case with Brumfield.
As far as his skill set is concerned, he's a big offensive guard recruit with a ton of potential. He has good size at 6'3.5", 272 pounds and he's ranked as the No. 8 offensive guard in the nation according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Brumfield also has good speed so he'll be able to get to the second level and be effective against linebackers.
If LSU can retain both Clapp and Brumfield and bring in Robinson, the future of the offensive line looks incredible.
LSU is also in the top two for 5-star running back and No. 1 overall recruit (247Sports Composite) Leonard Fournette, so landing Brumfield could help the Tigers on the recruiting trail with Fournette.
After all, every good running back knows he's only as good as his offensive line allows him to be.
There's a lot to look forward to if you're an LSU fan, as Brumfield's big commitment could end up being the first of quite a few in 2014.
