According to ESPN’s Recruiting Nation rankings, Kevin Tolliver II is the best high school cornerback in the country and the No. 6 overall player in the Class of 2015. The 6-2, 193-pound athlete from Trinity Christian Academy in Jacksonville, Fla., was being recruited by pretty much any big-time college football program you can name before picking LSU. Tolliver committed to the Tigers last week after whittling his list down to LSU, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Florida State and UCLA.
Here are some senior-year highlights of Tolliver, who plays in the secondary and plays some quarterback:
Now, I don’t like to perpetuate the stereotype that defensive backs are just shoulda-been wide receivers with bad hands, but I noticed that on half of the plays in this clip where Tolliver is on the offensive side of the ball, he fumbles or bobbles the ball on his way to making a highlight.
