Two down, 23 to go.
Cornerback Kevin Toliver II, the headliner in LSU’s current 2015 class of commitments, will enroll in school early, his father said Tuesday.
Toliver, a five-star prospect from Florida, will start classes in January, his father, Kevin Toliver, said. His son’s recruiting process is “over.”
“That’s it,” he added.
LSU has 16 commitments in its current class and plans to sign a full 25, recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson said Monday while speaking in New Orleans.
A handful of the current commits are planning to enroll early.
Quarterback Justin McMillan, a three-star commit from Texas, confirmed that he, like Toliver, has been cleared by LSU to enroll early. McMillian, a dual-threat prospect from Cedar Hill, Texas, committed to LSU in June.
Texas tight end Hanner Shipley also plans to enroll early, McMillan said.
Toliver is the big fish in a class that currently ranks 15th nationally. At one point earlier this year, he was ranked as the No. 1 recruit in the nation. He’s listed as the No. 2 ranked cornerback for the 2015 class, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
Toliver committed to LSU a whopping two years ago. He’s held firm with that commitment, made when he was 16.
“That shows pretty strong character, integrity,” his father said. “Heartfelt.”
Toliver also visited Florida State, UCLA, Ohio State and Auburn, according to 247Sports.
