LSU’s string of Australian punters will continue.
Josh Growden committed to LSU on Monday night, according to his Twitter account. Growden is ranked as the 11th-best punter in the class of 2015, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. It gives the Tigers 20 commits ahead of Wednesday’s national signing day.
Teams can sign no more than 25 prospects starting on Wednesday.
Growden continues the series of Australian punters at LSU. Jamie Keehn, the Tigers’ current starter, is from down under and will be a senior next year. Keehn’s predecessor, Brad Wing, is from Australia.
LSU awaits the commitment announcement of defensive end Arden Key, set for Monday night. The Tigers will have to wait until signing day before knowing the future of a few other top targets.
