The LSU Tigers had a successful recruiting class, finishing second in the team rankings.

Headlining the class was the top overall recruit of the 2014 class, running back Leonard Fournette. He stands at 6-foot-1 and 227 pounds, and has the makeup that Adrian Peterson did when he first entered college. Fournette will make an immediate impact in his freshman year, and will be leaned upon to carry a bulk of the load for the Tigers at running back.

But the Tigers got more on National Signing Day. Also signing was the No. 1 middle linebacker in Clifton Garrett and the No. 1 safety in Jamal Adams. LSU also got wide receiver Malachi Dupree (No. 2) and defensive tackle Travonte Valentine to sign on the dotted line. 

The best thing about the other four is that they'll come in and contribute right away. All players are just that good, as is the rest of the class.
