For each signee, we've included the prospect's ranking and scouting report, as well as a link to his Signing Day Capsule. In that you'll find a brief summary of his recruitment, an evaluation of his playing style and a prediction for what kind of impact he could have as a freshman.

---------------------------


Brandon Harris | Bossier City (La.) Parkway
Overall Ranking: #125 | | #6 QB
Status: Enrolled
Scouting Report: Harris has one of the strongest arms in the country with enough athleticism and mobility to make plays with his feet as well. He fits the mold for what Cam Cameron wants in his quarterback. Harris still has some things to work on in his release and throwing mechanics, but the raw tools are there and he has as much potential as any QB in the country.

Signing Day Capsule: Brandon Harris
 
Ed Paris | Arlington (Texas) Mansfield Timberview
Overall Ranking: #47 | | #7 CB
Status: Enrolled
Scouting Report: Paris, 6-1 and 190 pounds, is a physical cornerback, known for his ability to jam and press at the line of scrimmage as well as a penchant for hitting hard and arriving at the ball in a bad mood. He has the skill set to play safety, but Paris will start his Tiger career learning the ropes at cornerback.

Signing Day Capsule: Ed Paris
 
John Battle | Hallandale (Fla.)
Ranking: | #78 S
Status: Signed (7:13 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Battle is a long, lean defensive back that will likely fit best as a free safety on the next level. He's an intelligent player that reads the quarterback well and makes clean breaks on the ball. He has great closing speed and has a knack for creating turnovers, whether it be an interception or a fumble forced by a big hit.

Signing Day Capsule: John Battle
 
Donnie Alexander | New Orleans (La.) Edna Karr
Ranking: | #66 OLB
Status: Signed (7:18 a.m.)
Scouting Report: After his junior season, LSU pegged Alexander as the top LB in the state. He's a smaller, speedy LB and LSU could use that quickness in several different ways. He has the ability to cover sideline-to-sideline and can absolutely fly around the field.

Signing Day Capsule: Donnie Alexander
 
Jacory Washington | Westlake (La.)
Overall Ranking: #206 | | #6 TE
Status: Signed (7:25 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Washington carries the tight end tag with him because of his size, but he's a true pass catcher in every sense. He often flexed out as a wide receiver in high school, an enormous mismatch against defenders. Washington high points the ball well and is a smooth runner considering he's pushing 6-foot-5.

Signing Day Capsule: Jacory Washington
 
Will Clapp | New Orleans (La.) Brother Martin
Overall Ranking: #257 | | #15 OG
Status: Signed (7:30 a.m.)
Scouting Report: On the collegiate level Clapp is likely to stay at guard, probably on the left side he lined up on more often than not as a prep player. He has a mean streak to him and enjoys finishing off blocks. Clapp has the strength needed to play the position and is relatively nimble too.

Signing Day Capsule: Will Clapp
 
Garrett Brumfield | Baton Rouge (La.) University Lab
Overall Ranking: #220 | | #13 OG
Status: Signed (7:39 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Brumfield has the versatility to play inside or out on the line, but his future is at guard. That's where the Tiger coaches have informed Brumfield that he'll play. He's got great size and possesses nice agility for a player with his frame. Brumfield will have an opportunity to crack the two-deep as a true freshman.

Signing Day Capsule: Garrett Brumfield
 
Tony Upchurch | Pearland (La.) Dawson
Overall Ranking: #197 | | #37 WR
Status: Signed (7:45 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Upchurch is a smooth runner with strong hands that's accustomed to out-manning the defender. As most all high school receivers, Upchurch has room to improve in his route-running, but he is truly a physical specimen that should adjust well to the college game.

Signing Day Capsule: Tony Upchurch
 
DJ Chark | Alexandria (La.)
Ranking: | #168 WR
Status: Signed (7:52 a.m.)
Scouting Report: At 6-1, 170 pounds, Chark is a probable redshirt candidate given LSU's young depth in the receiving corps. Once he does reach the field, Chark gives the Bayou Bengals versatility with his quickness and penchant for making acrobatic catches. Miles reportedly told Chark during camp he could play in the slot or at the X- and Z-receiver positions for the Tigers.

Signing Day Capsule: DJ Chark
 
Clifton Garrett | Plainfield (Ill.) Plainfield South
Overall Ranking: #24 | | #1 MLB
Status: Signed (7:57 a.m.)
Scouting Report: He already looks like a SEC linebacker and his play on the field mirrors that. Garrett is an absolute monster between the sidelines, even though he's one of the nicest guys you'll meet off the field. Garrett's a physical specimen that plays downhill and fills the rushing lanes with authority. He's a sure tackler that rarely misses when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier.

Signing Day Capsule: Clifton Garrett
 
Trey Quinn | Lake Charles (La.) Barbe
Overall Ranking: #184 | | #33 WR
Status: Signed (8:16 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Quinn's sure hands and advanced route running make him an attractive option to see playing time in 2014. He has good but not great speed for a receiver, but Quinn makes up for it by being so solid across the board.

Signing Day Capsule: Trey Quinn
 
Jamal Adams | Lewisville (Texas) Hebron
Overall Ranking: #8 | | #1 S
Status: Signed (8:19 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Pulling Adams out of Dallas was a major steal for the Tigers as they secured a commitment from the nation's No. 1 safety. Adams is a true ballhawk in the defensive backfield and should fit in nicely as a free safety. He has tremendous closing speed and the mental awareness to serve as a leader in the secondary.

Signing Day Capsule: Jamal Adams
 
Cameron Gamble | Lewisville (Texas.) Flower Mound
Ranking: | #{} K
Status: Signed (8:37 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Gamble ranks as one of the Top 10 kickers, according to Chris Sailer's rankings. Gamble has a powerful leg and kickoffs are his speciality.

Signing Day Capsule: Cameron Gamble
 
Sione Teuhema | Keller (Texas)
Overall Ranking: #286 | | #28 OLB
Status: Signed (9:07 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Sione ranks as a four-star OLB, though he's a pure pass rusher and he'll be a defensive end at LSU. He's long and lean at 6-foot-4, about 215 pounds, but he has exceptional speed coming off the edge, moving swiftly past blockers that outweigh him by almost 100 pounds. He often has two steps on the blocker before he's even out of his stance, and that's something LSU would love to have on its defense.

Signing Day Capsule: Sione Teuhema
 
Darrel Williams | New Orleans (La.) Ehret
Overall Ranking: #262 | | #24 RB
Status: Signed (9:10 a.m.)
Scouting Report: He's a strong, physical downhill runner that rarely goes down on first contact. He improved significantly from his junior to season year, and proved he's the complete package. Williams isn't just a bruiser. He's smooth in his cuts and has improved his straight-line speed as well.

Signing Day Capsule: Darrel Williams
 
Devin Voorhies | Woodville (Miss.) Wilkinson County
Ranking: | #27 S
Status: Signed (9:17 a.m.)
Scouting Report: He projects as a safety at LSU, and Voorhies brings to the Tigers' secondary an excellent athlete who excelled in the high- and triple-jumps as well as basketball in high school. Voorhies is the reigning Mississippi Gatorade Player of the Year.

Signing Day Capsule: Devin Voorhies
 
Trey Lealaimatafao | San Antonio (Texas) Warren
Ranking: | #36 DT
Status: Signed (10:00 a.m.)
Scouting Report: At about 6-foot, 300 pounds, he's a little ball of explosion with tremendous strength and power off the line. But Lealaimatafao isn't just a wrecking ball. He's quick on his feet and is just as adept at running around a blocker as he was bursting through them.

Signing Day Capsule: Trey Lealaimatafao
 
Travonte Valentine | Hialeah (Fla.) Champagnat Catholic
Overall Ranking: #74 | | #2 DT
Status: Signed (10:25 a.m.)
Scouting Report: At 6-foot-4, 340 pounds, Valentine is an absolute monster along the defensive line. But he isn't just brute strength. He's surprisingly agile and uses his hands well to get past defenders. And once he gets his massive arms around the ballcarrier, there's a pretty good chance he'll bring him to the ground.

Signing Day Capsule: Travonte Valentine
 
Russell Gage | Baton Rouge (La.) Redemptorist
Ranking: | #87 CB
Status: Signed (10:34 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Long and lean, Gage will begin his career as a corner, though he could just as easily play safety or even wide receiver on the net level. Gage is a smooth runner with great ball skills and that kind of athleticism is what LSU cherishes in its secondary. He'll need time to develop and get bigger, but Gage has the tools to be a productive player down the line.

Signing Day Capsule: Russell Gage
 
Davon Godchaux | Plaquemine (La.)
Overall Ranking: #173 | | #21 DE
Status: Signed (11:45 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Godchaux ranks as one of the top defensive ends in the country, though at 6-4, 275 pounds, he could very well end up on the inside. He's surprisingly nimble for a player of his size, and he's at his best in pursuit of the ballcarrier or quarterback. He could definitely add a few pounds and become a disruptive force as a defensive tackle, and that versatility will serve him well on the college level.

Signing Day Capsule: Davon Godchaux
 
Malachi Dupre | New Orleans (La.) John Curtis
Overall Ranking: #27 | | #2 WR
Status: Signed (11:49 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Dupre is exactly what you look for in a wide receiver. He's got speed, length, body control, physicality, strong hands and just about every other trait you could want.

Signing Day Capsule: Malachi Dupre
 
Leonard Fournette | New Orleans (La.) St. Augustine
Overall Ranking: #1 | | #1 RB
Status: Signed (11:55 a.m.)
Scouting Report: Fournette is the complete package when it comes to running the football. He has size, speed, toughness and elusiveness. One tackle is rarely enough to bring him down and he can choose to either run around you or through you. Then once you get him in the open field, he has the acceleration to leave every other defender in his wake.

Signing Day Capsule: Leonard Fournette
