LSU lands top Florida prospect in the Class of 2016

LSU is increasingly becoming DBU. The Tigers landed a pledge from another top defensive back on Tuesday, as Saivion Smith announced that he planned to head to Baton Rouge to further his football career. The Class of 2016 product committed to the Bayou Bengals over offers from major powers such as Clemson, Florida State, Virginia Tech and Florida. According to the 247Sports Composite ratings, Smith is the No. 1 cornerback in the entire country and the top player in Florida. He had 10 non-offensive touchdowns during his junior season, so his playmaking ability is undeniable. The 6-1, 185-pounder from IMG Academy (St. Petersburg, FL) is the seventh commitment for the Tigers' 2016 class. Many recruiting analysts believed that Florida State would be the landing spot for Smith, but he was obviously impressed by his first unofficial visit to LSU’s campus a few days ago. LSU is also on the trail for other top defensive backs in this class such as in-state cornerback products Kristian Fulton and Andraez Williams, so the rich may keep getting richer. And with Smith's pledge, Corey Raymond is showing once again that he is one of the best recruiters in the country. Now the question remains whether LSU can keep the commitment of the Florida prospect until next year's National Signing Day.
