Brian Kelly and the Tigers landing four-star edge rusher Jaxon Howard could be what has this program reel in a string of recruits over the next week.

Howard, the highest-rated recruit in the Tigers 2023 class, chose LSU over Miami, Michigan and his hometown school, Minnesota.

The relationship Howard developed with defensive line coach Jamar Cain is what ultimately set the tone for him to commit to the Tigers. The family-type atmosphere swayed him to LSU and he believes in what this program is building.
