Kendell Beckwith is now a Tiger
The decision LSU fans have long awaited was announced on Friday when Kendell Beckwith committed to the Tigers at the Under Armour All-American Game.
Beckwith, ranked as the No. 99 prospect in the Top247, is the No. 4 weakside defensive end in the country and the No. 3 player in Louisiana for the 2013 class.
Beckwith, recruited to LSU as an outside linebacker, the only one in the class, is LSU's 26th commitment for 2013. With the Tigers counting four early enrollees back to the 2012 class, the staff has room to add as many as three more commitments.
Beckwith chose LSU over Alabama, the only other school that the Clinton, La., native every seriously considered.
