LSU announces its 2013 signing class

LSU has announced its 2013 signing class.

The Tigers finished the day with 27 signees, including seven ESPN 150 and 15 ESPN 300 members. The Tigers grabbed a surprise commit Wednesday afternoon in ESPN 150 defensive end Tashawn Bower (Somerville, N.J./Immaculata), who had been committed to Auburn since June of 2012. There was also talk early Wednesday morning that Bower intended to sign with Florida, but he later said his "heart led me" to LSU.

Other headliners of LSU's class are four-star prospects Kendell Beckwith of Jackson, La., who is the No. 4 athlete in the country, and four-star Jeryl Brazil, who is rated the No. 8 cornerback nationally.

LSU currently ranks seventh in ESPN's class rankings.
