On National Signing Day, LSU football successfully added Dominick McKinley, a highly sought-after five-star defensive lineman, to their class of 2024.

This recruitment secures LSU’s defensive tackle of the future, as officially announced on Wednesday.

Coach Kelly’s staff focused on the trenches during the summer,

and Bo Davis has been brought in to handle defensive line tasks,

adding to the team’s diverse skill set for the foreseeable future.

While LSU missed out on five-star Terry Bussey,

they have secured four commitments from Texas A&M in recent months.

The 2024 class concludes with 28 high school signees and one JUCO signee, including highly sought-after DL Shone Washington.
