Nearly a week after National Signing Day, LSU has officially added the final piece to its 2014 recruiting class.
The Tigers confirmed Monday night that, as expected, Deondre Clark has formally signed his National Letter of Intent with the university. Clark had reportedly sent his signed NLI in last Wednesday, but LSU held off on announcing Clark’s signing until the defensive end could hold his signing ceremony.
Twice, the weather in Oklahoma City prevented Clark from conducting his planned ceremony.
“Deondre is a very athletic and versatile player who was a standout on both sides of the ball in high school,” LSU head coach Les Miles said in a statement. “We are thrilled to have him join this class. He fills a need for us at defensive end. He’ll be able to come in and compete for playing time right away.”
Clark officially becomes a four-star member of LSU’s 2014 recruiting class, rated as the No. 8 weakside end in the country and the No. 3 player at any position in the state of Oklahoma. The signing of Clark is a part of an LSU class that was ranked No. 2 in the country by Rivals.com.
Clark is also the younger brother of Stevie Clark, the Oklahoma State basketball standout who was dismissed recently by the Cowboys following a pair of arrests. The younger Clark has publicly stated that he’s trying to recruit his brother to come to Baton Rouge and play hoops for the Tigers.
