LSU's coaching staff surely has more important issues to worry about than ESPN's most recent recruiting rankings. But it's at the very least a funny coincidence that the day the Tigers landed the No. 13 spot in this year's rankings, they added yet another four-star prospect to their class -- the 17th overall.

Anthony Jennings (Marietta, Ga./Marietta) is the new name, and he comes to Baton Rouge as the No. 13 dual threat quarterback in the country. Jennings also ranks No. 259 in the ESPN 300, giving LSU a whopping nine members of the ESPN 300 (with two of those ranking in the ESPN 150). Jennings' commitment maintains a torrid pace for LSU as the program heads into the summer. The quarterbacks is LSU's third commitment of this week, its third four-star commitment from out-of-state and its eighth commitment since the beginning of May.

At the rate the Tigers keep adding four-star prospects, they should continue to climb into the upper reaches of this year's class rankings.
