LSU head coach Ed Orgeron leads his team out of the tunnel for LSU's game against Arkansas in Tiger Stadium on Saturday Nov. 23, 2019, in Baton Rouge, La.

Four-star recruit Khari Gee committed to LSU on Monday afternoon, giving the Tigers two defensive backs in their 2021 class.

Gee, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound safety from Woodward Academy in Atlanta, picked LSU over Clemson. He announced his decision on Twitter.

"I'm determined to be great," Gee said in his commitment video. "Determined to leave a legacy. This is why I'm committing to the real DBU, Louisiana State University."

Gee is considered the No. 18 safety in the country, according to the 247Sports composite rankings, and the No. 337 overall recruit in the nation.

Gee joined three-star prospect Dakota Mitchell as the second safety committed to LSU. Gee's announcement, the fourth to LSU this month, gave the Tigers 11 verbal commitments in their 2021 class.
