Kaleb Jackson, a four-star running back from Baton Rouge, has committed to LSU and head coach Brian Kelly. Jackson committed to the Tigers on Tuesday morning.
Jackson, who chose LSU over Alabama and Texas A&M, is one of the most dynamic running backs on the market.
After welcoming three-star linebacker Whit Weeks on Saturday, Jackson became the Tigers’ 15th commit in the 2023 class. He joins four-star Louisiana native Trey Holly as the class’s second running back commit.
The 5-foot-10, 200-pound prospect is a top recruit in Louisiana and a top 10 running back in the class of 2023. For Kelly and his staff to keep the Baton Rouge native home is a massive win for this program as they continue trying to reel in the state’s top talent.
Jackson has the ability to run over defenders while also possessing the agility and finesse to shake the defense with his quick feet. It’s too lofty of expectations to compare one to Clyde Edwards-Helaire, but the electric running back attains a few traits that could be similar.
LSU is blazing hot on the recruitment trail, landing yet another program changing prospect this month. In search of more skill position players for this class, the Tigers fill a position of need with Jackson, who gives them a versatile running back who can do it all.
The dynamic running back has all the tools to be successful in Death Valley. With LSU right in his backyard, he now gets to represent his hometown school and add to an already loaded running back room.
We said a storm is coming with this 2023 class and it’s rapidly coming together. As June set the tone for what was to come in July, we are seeing Brian Kelly and his staff see their recruiting efforts pay off.
LSU now has 15 spots filled with their focus turning to filling positions of need over the next few months and evaluating the roster. The Tigers still have a few prospects set to announce their college decision soon in what is shaping up to be an incredible month on the recruitment trail.
