LSU hosted 2024 defensive lineman Charleston Collins for a visit last week, and the Tigers seem to have made an impression on the four-star Pine Bluff (Ark.) Wilbur D. Mills prospect.
Collins — a 6-foot-4, 250-pound player who is listed as the No. 25 defensive lineman and No. 243 overall prospect on the 247Sports Composite Rankings — told On3’s Chad Simmons (subscription required) that his unofficial visit was “amazing.”
He said he met with coach Brian Kelly as well as several of the other 2024 prospects the Tigers have committed in a class that currently ranks second nationally.
There are other suitors for Collins, including Arkansas, Georgia, TCU, Tennessee and Texas. However, the in-state Razorbacks and LSU seem to be the frontrunners. He has four Crystal Ball predictions, two for Arkansas back in May and two for LSU from November.
On3 has LSU as a heavy favorite, listing it at 95.2% to land him on the Recruiting Prediction Machine.
