LSU picked up yet another talented in-state prospect on Thursday morning — as 2016 OL Willie Allen pledged his commitment to Les Miles and the Tigers. 

The New Orleans native selected LSU over strong pushes from TCU, Auburn, and Ole Miss. At 6-foot-7, 300 pounds, Allen is easily one of the most physically-imposing tackle prospects in the ’16 class.

While Allen could stand to improve on his lateral quickness and a tendency to bend from his waist as opposed to with his knees, the tools are there for him to be a very good college player. 

Again, Miles is is proving why he’s the king within the state of Louisiana. Allen’s commitment to the program catapulted LSU to the top of 247Sports recruiting rankings. With two weeks until signing day, the Tigers could strengthen their hold on the No. 1 spot even further.
