The LSU football team received its second commitment from a player from California for its 2020 recruiting class.
Jordan Berry, a 6-foot-3, 280-pound defensive tackle announced Saturday via Twitter that he was committed to the Tigers.
“Truly blessed and honored to say I have committed to Coach O and Louisiana State University!” wrote Berry, a Harbor City native who is the nation’s No. 33 defensive tackle, according to 247Sports.
Berry joins Elias Ricks, the nation’s top cornerback, as California commitments to the Tigers.

LSU’s 2020 class ranks No. 2. nationally and now has 10 committed athletes. Berry is the third defensive tackle to commit in the class, along with University High’s Jaquelin Roy (No. 16 in nation) and Haynesville High’s CamRon Jackson (No. 24).
LSU’s recruiting presence in California is fairly new. The Tigers haven’t signed a high school player out of California since 2013, when quarterback Hayden Rettig and offensive tackle Fehoko Fanaika both signed under then-coach Les Miles.
Former kicker Cole Tracy was originally from Camarillo, California but he attended Assumption College in Massachusetts before transferring to LSU last year.
LSU's 2019 recruiting class was all about how much the Tigers could lock down the major talent inside Louisiana.
