The LSU football program lost a commitment from an in-state defensive tackle Friday when John Ehret High's Patrick Jenkins announced he would be re-opening his recruitment.
The 6-foot-2, 285-pound Jenkins was the sixth defensive lineman to commit to the Tigers back in June, and five defensive tackles remain committed to LSU's 2020 class upon Jenkin's de-commitment.
"I appreciate the opportunity," Jenkins wrote on Twitter, "but I have to do what's best for me."

The four-star Jenkins is the nation's No. 28 defensive tackle recruit of his class, according to 247Sports, and he holds scholarship offers from schools like Arkansas, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
LSU's 2020 class has 22 commitments, close to the 25 the NCAA permits per year. The Tigers rank No. 3 nationally, behind No. 1 Clemson and No. 2 Alabama.
