LSU is #1 in the country and preparing for the College Football Playoffs, but today, they took a break from practice to officially welcome new players into the program.

Early national signing day has landed the Tigers with top-rated talent, though they missed out on a pair of prized recruits in 5-star wide receiver Rakim Jarrett who flipped his commitment today to Maryland, his home state, as well as 4-star wide receiver Jermaine Burton out of Calabasas, California, who committed to LSU in April but signed with Georgia today.

Here's a rundown of the LSU Tigers, along with star rankings given by multiple outlets. It will be updated until the end of the day.
