LSU football has picked up its latest commitment to its 2020 recruiting class.
Malcolm Greene, a safety from Highland Springs, Virginia, committed Saturday to LSU, according to 247Sports. Greene also held offers from schools such as Clemson, Michigan and Florida.
Greene was on an official visit in Baton Rouge when LSU beat Florida 42-28 on Saturday night, according to 247Sports.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Greene, who is ranked the No. 27 overall safety by 247Sports, is now the fifth player in LSU's 2020 class from the East Coast.
Greene joins wide receiver Rakim Jarrett (Washington, D.C.), inside linebacker Antoine Sampah (Woodbridge, Virginia), safety Jordan Toles (Baltimore) and Demon Clowney (Baltimore) from the region, which has proven to be a major point of emphasis in 2020 by LSU coach Ed Orgeron.
The focus is warranted.
Only two Louisiana players are ranked in the top 100 overall recruits in 247Sports' composite rankings: defensive tackle Jaquelin Roy (No. 43, University Lab) and Kayshon Boutte (No. 48, Westgate High). Both players are committed to LSU.
LSU's class has 23 commitments. It ranks third nationally behind Clemson and Alabama.
