Fireworks continued for the LSU Tigers well into Thursday evening as four star linebacker, Donte Starks, announced his commitment to Baton Rouge. Starks made his announcement via a video he tweeted just after 10PM Thursday evening, in which Starks talked about the tough road he had to take to get to where he is today and at the end of the video, Starks says he's staying home to play with the Ed Orgeron led LSU Tigers. Listed at 6-foot-1, 210 pounds by Rivals.com, Starks is considered a top 10 national linebacker, as well as a top 10 player out of the state of Louisiana. Arkansas, Georgia, and Auburn were all hoping to land Starks, who is now the 19th commit of the class of 2019 for the Tigers and the fourth linebacker in that group. As for the reason behind his commitment to the Tigers, "Because of the vibe," said Starks adding, "They really treated me like one of their own, like a family."
