Plus, the Tigers were able to sell their recent success as a pro pipeline for defensive backs, with its notable products including Eric Reid, Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu. Entering Wednesday, LSU was viewed as the heavy favorite for Surtain, who attends high school in the Hurricanes' backyard, at American Heritage School in Plantation, Fla., but has family ties in New Orleans and Baton Rouge and had developed a close relationship with LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond. Patrick Surtain Jr., the No. 1 cornerback in the class of 2018, announced on Wednesday morning that he is heading to Alabama. Campbell's commitment will fuel the Bulldogs' push to finish this cycle with the No. 1-ranked class in the country.

Surtain is the second top defensive back in six years to choose Alabama over LSU right under LSU's nose.

Listed at 6-foot and 180 pounds, Braxton Barker prepped at Spain Park High, where he led his team to the Class 7A playoffs, losing in the first round to Hewitt-Trussville - his father's alma mater. He was at LSU on January 11. The night before, you get a phone call, and he's not.

On Jan. 19, Surtain visited Alabama after dropping in on LSU on Jan. 12.

The meeting did not address the future role of Assad, who US officials have said must be transitioned from power. What I'm saying is groups on the ground, NGOs, fighters on the ground have said that sarin has been used.

"I see Goodrich going to Clemson", Scarborough said.

LSU appears to be out of the running for No. 18 dual threat quarterback James Foster (6-3, 188) of Sidney Lanier High in Montgomery, Ala., which means LSU will not meet one of its goals for the Class of 2018, which was to sign a quarterback.

LSU can only sign 25, according to the new NCAA scholarship signing class limits, and it inked 21 back in the early signing period from December 20-22.

Joseph committed to LSU last week over such schools as Alabama, Arizona State, Arkansas and Clemson.

It looks like LSU will come in under 25, which means it would have space for a possible quarterback graduate transfer after spring practice when quarterbacks often made a decision to transfer.
