You know you’re doing something right in recruiting when the mad hatter starts offering your commits.
Les Miles and the LSU staff ventured into East Tennessee with their latest offer.
Three-star Defensive end Dylan Jackson, who is from Maryville, TN, was offered by the Tigers on Tuesday.

Jackson, 6’6″/245 lbs, committed to Tennessee on January 16.
The Tennessee native is rated by 247Sports as the 23rd best player in Tennessee and the 44th best strong-side defensive end in the nation.
The fact that Miles is offering a guy in Tennessee’s backyard tells you that maybe Jackson is rated a bit low.
Regardless, I can’t see Jackson ending up anywhere other than Knoxville.
The Vols’ defensive line is going to be a strength over the next couple of years and Jackson is a sleeper to watch.
