Elite offensive lineman Badara Traore committed to LSU on Thursday night.
Listed at 6-foot-8 and 315 pounds, Traore is a massive offensive tackle in the junior college class of 2018.
Not only is he massive, he’s dominant. Traore is the No. 1 JUCO offensive tackle in the country — and the No. 6 overall JUCO player nationally.
The Hyde Park, Mass., native is a 4-star prospect according to the 247Sports Composite ratings. He currently attends ASA College in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Traore has an extensive offer list, which includes schools such as Auburn, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Georgia in addition to LSU.
“Any difficulties I faced during Junior College taught me a lot about myself and turned me into the student-athlete I am today,” Traore said. “I have (dreamed) of this day since I was a kid.”
