The LSU Tigers continue to add to their touted recruiting class, as the latest edition is elite kicker Connor Culp, the 19th pledge to their 2016 recruiting class.

Culp is rated as the nation's seventh best kicker by 247Sports and carries a three-star evaluation heading into his senior season of high school.

Culp's commitment pushes LSU back in front of Ohio State's recruiting class as the Tigers regain the No. 1 ranking in the nation from the Buckeyes. With five-star defensive tackle Rashan Gary expected in for a two-day visit, the Tigers could lock up the top ranking if they can keep him away from Ohio State.
