Rejoice, Tigers fans. As LSU's flurry of May commitments rolls on this month, the Tigers on Tuesday grabbed their most high-profile commitment to date.

By landing offensive tackle Ethan Pocic (Lemont, Ill./Lemont), LSU secured its first commitment from the ESPN 150 to its ever-expanding recruiting class. Pocic sits No. 72 overall in the 2013 class, and is considered the fourth-best offensive tackle in the class. Not that rankings are what any coaching staff aims for when building a recruiting class, but it certainly gives the Tigers a nice highlight to what is becoming an impressive group.

At N0. 72 overall in the country, Pocic is the most recognizable in what is now a group of seven four-star recruits for LSU. With plenty more opportunities to land ESPN 150 names like Kendell Beckwith and Tim Williams, the potential is there for the Tigers to pull in one of the nation's best classes. It's also impressive that in what appears to be a slightly down year for Louisiana talent, LSU was able to land a prized recruit from the middle of Big Ten territory.
