LSU jumped up to #4 in the country in the 247Sports Team Rankings and Tre'Davious White is now a 5* and the #9 prospect overall in the country.
Other guys who made significant jumps were Frank Herron who jumped from #138 overall (or somewhere in that range) to #75.
LSU now has 5 guys in the Top 100 with Greg Gilmore, Ethan Pocic and Kendell Beckwith making nice leaps as well.

WHAT?!?! Shaq White gets the credit he deserves! Again, proof why this is the best recruiting site out there!

Very nice to see the moves. My favorite part of this process is the 3-4 yr look back. That lets me know if sites are really doing their homework. Cant predict all of them with great certainty, but some sites are better than others at these rankings.
I have to say this list is about as accurate and unbiased as I have seen. I disagree with a few of the ranks but as a whole it is spot on.
Great job by the 247 staff.

It's really a shame that 247 uses ESPN in part of their composite.
Wow, thanks 247Sports Staff! Great job on moving kids up that should have got a bump.
This has been such a fun year of recruiting! I can't wait to see how these kids perform during their career at LSU.
Agree. It's as close to what I would think as any out there and why I prefer the rankings here. I also have some disagreements but that's part of the business. My biggest gripe is Herron ranked 1-2 spot below Williams. Don't get that. Herron's just flat out better. Williams has the upside on his side but it's not as big a gap as some would think. Where Herron is currently, along with his upside and drive to be the best he can be, he should be ranked ahead of Williams. Much safer prospect with comparable upside and much better size and size potential. Williams' speed and quickness off the edge is blinding folks a bit I think.
5 in the top 100 compared to 0 last year... I'd say this class has amazing potential!

5 commits in the top 100 and 3 of them are from OOS. Really a great job by the staff this year, incredible. When LA is not as loaded as it was in 09/11/14, for the staff to go OOS and grab: Gilmore, Herron, Pocic, Jennings, Rettig, Neal, Dodd, Robinson, Lacouture (who all had offers from big time programs much closer to home) -- regardless of your feelings on the season you've got to give the staff credit where credit is due.
My last act before I left Rivals was to make sure that Shaq White was the No. 1 player in LA and I've been on a mission to do the same since I got here haha. I recommended him for five stars but even I was a little shocked at how high he ended up. I think he definitely deserves it though.

Nice job Brian. Baby Shaq should do big things for LSU.
I have a lot of confidence White wins a Thorpe before he leaves
Great foresight, Brian. IMO this lends even more credibility to the 247 staff.
Really a shame! ESPN...........C'mon man......REALLY???

White being mentioned in the same breath as PP7 is gigantic. I really feel that he deserves to be there but PP7 is going to be the measuring stick for DB at LSU for a long time to come IMO.
