Although it’s not a tangible entity, LSU has a virtual fence around the state of Louisiana. When it wants an in-state recruit, the said prospect generally more often than not winds up in Baton Rouge. 

247Sports 5-star prospect Kristian Fulton — a native of Metairie, La. — committed to LSU on Wednesday over the likes of Florida and Arkansas. 

There’s a lot to like about Fulton as a prospect. He’s a long, athletic corner with terrific height for the position. He’s got the frame and jumping ability to hang with taller pass-catchers, and also the quickness to stick against smaller, shiftier receivers. 

With LSU’s propensity for churning out defensive backs on the next level, it isn’t a complete surprise Fulton opted to stay close to home.
