LSU football welcomed six early enrollees into the fold Monday, as they arrived in time for the first day of spring semester classes.
The early enrollees include:
- Athlete prospect John Diarse (6-foot, 210 pounds) from Neville High School in Monroe
- Offensive tackle Fehoko Fanaika (6-6, 340), a junior college transfer from the College of San Mateo in California
- Quarterback Anthony Jennings (6-2, 205) from Marietta, Ga.
- Defensive end Christian LaCouture (6-5, 267) from Southwest High School in Lincoln, Neb.
- Offensive tackle Ethan Pocic (6-6, 285) from Lemont, Ill.
- Tight end Logan Stokes (6-4, 240) from Northeast Mississippi Community College.
Stokes has already signed his national letter of intent with LSU, the only member of the 2013 class to do so.
LSU is still waiting on two other early enrollees: quarterback Hayden Rettig (6-4, 222) of Los Angeles Cathedral and wide receiver Avery Johnson (6-2, 180) of Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia and Pompano Beach, Fla.
Rettig’s issue is believed to be a minor paperwork matter. Johnson, younger brother of former LSU All-American cornerback Patrick Peterson, is waiting for the NCAA Clearinghouse to approve his test score.
Johnson’s father, Patrick Peterson Sr., said Monday he remains confident his son will be able to enroll at LSU for the spring semester.
“For sure,” Peterson said in a text message.
All of LSU’s early enrollees are eligible to participate in spring practice.
LSU has a total of 26 commitments/signees for its Class of 2013. Aside from Stokes, the rest of LSU’s class may sign their national letters of intent beginning Feb. 6.
