LSU coaches have been on the road recruiting since the Tigers ended the regular season Nov. 28 with a win against Texas A&M.

Their efforts are paying off.

St. Thomas More kicking specialist and punter Bailey Raborn announced his commitment to LSU on Friday night, joining the No. 2 recruiting class of 2016, according to

Raborn’s addition again gives LSU 18 commitments for the current class. The only other kicker in the class in Connor Culp, a three-star recruit from Phoenix.

A three-star prospect per, Raborn originally committed to UCLA over the summer. He withdrew his commitment in November and flipped to the Tigers a week after STM lost to Parkview Baptist in the Division II state championship game.

Raborn posted a Twitter message Friday evening saying: “Words can’t describe how blessed I am to commit to play football for my dream school LSU! Extremely blessed.”

LSU currently has only two punters on its roster: senior Jamie Keehn and freshman Josh Growden.

Raborn earned first-team All-District 4-4A recognition as a punter and second-team honors as a kicker this season.
