Elias Ricks, the Top Corner Corner Prospectus in Class 2020, signed up for the LSU on Christmas Day.
Ricks, a 6-foot-2 defender based in Santa Ana, California, chose the Tigers over deals from Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio, USC and a number of other top programs in the country.
He is the leader among the eight commitments that LSU has received so far from juniors. He is number 16 of the recruits of the ESPN Junior 300.
Just an inspiration to my people …

"I made my promise," Ricks wrote on social media. "This is Elias Ricks and I will sign up at Louisiana State University Thanks to all and Merry Christmas Geaux Tigers."
The LSU has also reached Cornerback # 2 in the 2019 class, Derek Stingley Jr of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who may be one of the country's most impressive secondaries in the years to come.
