AMITE CITY, La. — After the early signing period, LSU Football has already hauled in a ridiculously talented 2019 recruiting class.
LSU has already signed six of the top ten high school players in Louisiana according to Rivals rankings, a sports magazine that specializes in college football and basketball recruiting.
"They have viewed this 2019 class as the class that puts them in the national championship conversation," said Sam Spiegleman, a journalist with Rivals.
There are, however, still two key targets that the Tigers have left on the board and both hail from Amite High School.
Rivals ranks defensive tackle Ishmael Sopsher and athlete Devonta Lee as the number five and six players, respectively, in the entire state.

Spiegelman said he considers Lee a lock to join the Tigers next recruiting class. But Sopsher is a wild card.
"Coach Orgeron made up a ton of ground with him by going in with him last Thursday. They're going back and forth, but at the moment I lean toward Alabama winning this out," Spiegelman said.

Still, come national signing day LSU has a chance to do something that is unprecedented: If they are able to sign Sopsher and Lee, they can box out Alabama from signing any player in Rivals' top ten in the state of Louisiana.
"It's absolutely colossal if LSU is able to pull off the 'Amite Sweep' as I like to call it," Spiegelman said.
"The expectations are going to be elevated so much because of this recruiting class, probably without Sopsher and Lee, but when one or two of them sign, the sky is the limit for what people think LSU can do in 2019," Spiegelman said.
