Well, that didn't take long.

Just four days after being offered a scholarship by LSU, David Ducre, a 3-star prospect and the No. 1 fullback in class of 2015, has committed to play in Baton Rouge.

Per Shea Dixon on 247Sports:

Hailing from Lakeshore High School in Mandeville, La., Ducre stands 6'0" and weighs in at 228 pounds. He has tremendous strength in both the upper and lower body and is capable of helping as both a rusher and a blocker.

Though he is rated the No. 1 fullback on both the 247Sports composite and the site's subjective ratings, the latter actually thinks a little more highly of Ducre, rating him a 4-star prospect and giving him a grade of 90 percent.

The composite grades him at roughly 87 percent.

LSU has done well to start the meat of the 2015 recruiting cycle, having also picked up a commitment from 3-star defensive end Isaiah Washington (Edna Carr) on Feb. 15. Together, Ducre and Washington move LSU's number of commits up to eight—tied with Clemson for the second-most in America.

Mississippi State leads the cycle with nine.

The Tigers' class currently sits at No. 3 behind Alabama and Texas A&M on the 247Sports team rankings.

It's highlighted by a couple of 5-star players in cornerback Kelvin Tolliver, the No. 3 overall player in the country, and offensive tackle Maea Teuhuma, who committed with his brother Sione (a former Texas commit in the class of 2014) on national signing day.

Ducre isn't the highest-profile name in the group, but as the No. 1 player at his position, his presence cannot be ignored.

Especially in a pro-style power-rushing offense like LSU's—something that's become a bit of an anachronism—he has a chance to become an impact player in college.
