LSU football recruiting: Three 5-stars to visit for Auburn game

Chris Graythen

The LSU Tigers welcome the Auburn Tigers to Death Valley Saturday night. And there to watch will be three five-star recruits and a host of other top prospects. LSU is favored by 17 points, so the odds are that the recruits will see an impressive performance from the Bayou Bengals.

Leonard Fournette, of New Orleans' St. Augustine High School, is the best back in the country and a player who many believe is the best running back since Adrian Peterson. Fournette is a battle between LSU and Alabama, and almost everyone expects him to attend LSU.

Laurence Jones, of Monroe (La.) Neville High School, is a tremendous five-star safety and a battle between Alabama and LSU.

Malachi Dupre, of New Orleans' John Curtis School, is a great five-star receiver who holds offers from most every school in the country, but is considered a strong lean to LSU. Some consider Dupre the best receiver in the country.

Dupre's teammate, Kenny Young, a four-star linebacker, will also attend.

Davon Godchaux, an LSU target at defensive end, recently tore his ACL and will not visit this weekend.

Bassfield (Miss.) High School junior safety Jamal Peters is also on the way down to see the Tigers.
