LSU added another nationally-ranked signing class last Wednesday as head coach Les Miles and his staff hauled in 12 of the best players in Louisiana to go along with some of the top prospects in nine other states.
In all, Miles and the Tigers signed a total of 27 players -- 14 on defense, 13 on offense. LSU's 2013 signing class was rated as high as No. 5 in the nation by Rivals.com, No. 6 by Scout.com and No. 7 by 247sports.com and ESPN.com. It's the eighth time in nine years that Miles and LSU have landed a class signing class ranked in the top 10.
The class included three players who were rated as 5-star prospects (Greg Gilmore, Frank Herron, Tre'Davious White) by the recruiting services with another 20 recognized as 4-star prospects.
