5-star DT Rashard Lawrence to decide between LSU, OSU January 22

The LSU Tigers and Ohio State Buckeyes are going to have two of the best recruiting classes for the 2016 season. The two teams are currently ranked No. 1 and No. 3, respectively, and one of them will likely solidify their spot at the top fairly soon.

Rashard Lawrence is one of the top players in the country for the 2016 recruiting class and he will be making his decision in the coming days. The five-star defensive tackle from Monroe, Louisiana will choose between LSU and Ohio State on January 22.

Lawrence is currently the top-ranked player in the state of Louisiana, the number 22-ranked player at any position in the country, and the number five-ranked defensive tackle in the country.

Whichever one of these two teams lands Lawrence will likely be sitting at the top of the recruiting rankings for the rest of the recruitment season. Both the Tigers and Buckeyes have been going back and forth for the top spot and the latter just got knocked out of number two by rival Michigan last weekend.
