Jalen Hurd's pile of scholarship offers continues to grow.

LSU is the latest school to offer the ESPN Watch List tailback from Hendersonville (Tenn.) Beech, Hurd confirmed on Wednesday. Hurd, a junior, already has scholarship offers from several big-name schools, including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Tennessee.

Hurd helped his team to a 15-0 season and a state championship this fall. He rushed for more than 3,300 yards and more than 40 touchdowns in 2012 and was named Mr. Football in 5A football in Tennessee.

Hurd has drawn early comparisons to Derrick Henry, the senior athlete from Yulee (Fla.) High who is committed to Alabama. Henry, who is 6-foot-3 and 243 pounds is high school tailback whom analysts say has outgrown the position despite setting the national career record for yards gained. Hurd is 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds. According to his head coach, Anthony Crabtree, Hurd is intent on playing tailback.
