Brian Kelly has made it a mission to recruit the best players in the state of Louisiana and keep them in the boot. Dominick McKinley definitely fits that bill. McKinley is a 6-foot-5, 280-pound, five-star defensive lineman from Lafayette, Louisiana, where he plays for Acadiana High School.
As of now, the Texas Longhorns are a 60% favorite to land him per On3, and the Longhorns have received a Crystal Ball projection to land him per 247Sports. LSU’s 2024 recruiting class currently ranks as the No. 9 overall class according to 247Sports. The class currently contains only one defensive lineman, three-star De'Myrion Johnson from New Iberia, Louisiana.
LSU’s 2024 class does not have a five-star commitment yet. McKinley would be a great player to add to put another checkmark on Kelly’s list.
