LSU has received another commitment from a top California recruit.

Four-star wide receiver Jermaine Burton, the No. 7-ranked player at his position per 247Sports, announced his commitment Saturday afternoon on Twitter, becoming the third member of LSU's 2020 recruiting class from California.

The 6-foot-1, 193-pound Burton, whose scholarship offers included Alabama, Miami and Tennessee, committed to the Tigers in a video shot at the Calabasas High football field.

Teammates asked him about his feelings on recruiting: "How do you feel about Bama?"

"The U?"


"That's not it, fam," Burton repeated.

Then, someone off screen tossed him an LSU T-shirt that read: "One team one heartbeat."

Burton exclaimed "That's it!" and stormed the practice field and pulled off an impressive cartwheel into a backflip.

LSU's 2020 class now has 12 members; Burton joins Mater Dei's Elias Ricks (No. 1 cornerback) and Narbonne's Jordan Berry (No. 39 defensive tackle) as three top 50 players in California to commit to the Tigers.

Burton is the second player to commit to LSU in as many days, after four-star Texas linebacker Josh White. White committed shortly after LSU lost a commitment from four-star athlete Jaden Navarrette, who flipped to Oregon.
