The LSU Tigers will be adding the top running back in the state, as well as the entire nation, to their 2019 recruiting class after all.


The 5-foot-11, 202-pound Emery is ranked by ESPN as not only the top running back in the country, but also the #2 prospect in the state of Louisiana, and the #14 prospect in the 2019 signing class.

Emery, who becomes LSU's second running back commitment, joining Southern Lab’s All-American Tyrion Davis, rushed for 1,191 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns in the regular season for Destrehan.
