In the aftermath of an official visit, 2016 cornerback Kristian Fulton now has a leader in his recruitment process. 

The Metairie, La. prospect has officially named LSU as is leader, according to a report from ESPN. Fulton has visits set to Arkansas (Jan. 22) and Florida (Jan. 29) remaining. 

The 4-star defensive back has a long and lengthy frame. He still does need to put on considerable strength and weight — likely within a redshirt season. With that said, Fulton possesses very good quickness and agility. He’s able to flip his hips well in coverage when defending on routes down the field. 

LSU doesn’t lose a ton of in-state prospects — especially ones as highly ranked as Fulton. Both Arkansas and Florida have their work cut out for themselves.
