4-star 2025 running back trims final list to 7 schools, including LSU

One of the best running backs in the 2025 recruiting class has narrowed his list of final schools down to seven schools. Brian Kelly and the LSU Tigers are in the final seven.

LSU joins Miami, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Texas, Alabama and Louisiana Tech as the final seven schools that are being considered by James Simon. Simon is a 5-foot-11, 200-pound, four-star running back from Calvary Baptist Academy in Shreveport, Louisiana. The Calvary Baptist Cavaliers finished the 2023 season 14-0 and were winners of the 2A state championship.

Simon has currently received multiple crystal ball projections to commit to LSU and the Tigers are a 94% favorite to land him per On3. LSU’s 2025 recruiting class is currently ranked as the No. 3 class in the country by 247Sports. The Tigers already have one commit at the running back position in that class in four-star Harlem Berry. Berry is rated as the No. 2 running back in the class by 247Sports.
