The rich get richer. LSU is making a strong push up the Rivals.com national recruiting rankings and the Tigers have struck it rich again. This time the Tigers have landed a four-star junior college linebacker from the talent rich Jayhawk Conference in Kansas.
According to Dodge City (Kan.) Community College coach Andy Siegall, the Tigers have landed a commitment from four-star junior college linebacker E.J. Kuale.
Kuale actually committed to the Tigers last Wednesday, but with the Thanksgiving holiday, his coach didn’t hear from him until this weekend.
“E.J. called me and said he committed to coach (Kirk) Doll,” Siegall said. “He really liked coach Doll. He was recruiting him the hardest since the beginning and E.J. knows that he can go to LSU and make an impact right away.”
Kuale visited Kansas State and West Virginia and was scheduled to visit Arizona State and Florida. But now with his commitment made, expect him to not take any more visits and sign with the Tigers on December 17, the first day that mid-term junior college prospects can ink with Division I schools.
Originally out of Daytona Beach (Fla.) Mainland High School, Kuale signed with Georgia Tech in 2001. Kuale started as a true freshman at Georgia Tech and was a mainstay in the linebacking corps all season. Due to an academic situation, Kuale had to leave Georgia Tech.
He sat out last year before earning all-Jayhawk Conference honors this season with more than 13 tackles a game.
