As a defensive end, Jordan Hammond garnered attention and awards, but LSU is looking to parlay his athletic ability into an offensive target. On Friday, the 6-5, 225-pounder became the second tight end to pledge his services to the Tigers.

As a defensive end Jordan Hammond garnered attention and awards, but LSU is looking to parlay his athletic ability into an offensive target.

 

On Friday, the 6-5, 225-pounder became the second tight end to pledge his services to the Tigers.

 

“The coaching staff did a great job recruiting me and after thinking things over I decided to go ahead and commit,” Hammond told Tiger Rag. “The weather in Louisiana is about like it is here in Florida and I kind of wanted to get out of the state.”

 

Last season, Hammond recorded 58 tackles, 28 for loss, and four sacks. On the offensive side of the ball, Hammond reeled in six catches, one for a touchdown. He earned third team all-state, second team all-district and first team all-county. He was also one of only five players on his team to earn a 3.0 GPA or higher.

 

LSU defensive line coach Earl Lane recruited Hammond and his Florida connections helped a lot at landing Hammond.

 

Coach Lane did a good job at making me feel comfortable and it is good to know that there are some guys from Florida over there,” Hammond said.

 

Hammond said he has received 24 offers and he may still visit a couple of schools to make sure that LSU is the best fit.

 

“I may visit Ohio State, Tennessee and Florida,” he said. “I am pretty sure that LSU is where I want to go but I’ll see some other places to make sure.”
