One of the biggest gets of the 2020 LSU class, a player who may be the most motivated and bristling with confidence that we’ve seen in some time is 6-2, 180-pound Dwight McGlothern.
By DT Yates
The consensus four-star cornerback is ranked as high as 13th in the state and nationally at the position. LSU came out on top for one of the most highly sought-after defensive backs in the country fending off teams like USC, Oregon, Texas, Texas A&M and Virginia Tech among many others.
McGlothern, who committed to LSU on January 4, 2020, did well in both the long and high jump for New Caney High school in the Houston area and it shows when he goes up for balls. As we see at the pair of plays 01:31 into the video, he’s excellent in goal line situations and great at using his length to his advantage. You can also tell McGlothern played receiver. He's been called the best two-way player of the class in the area and we have little reason to doubt that after seeing him compete against top competition.
The District 15-6A MVP had two interceptions and one for a score in the All-American Bowl where he committed to play for the national champion Tigers. He picks things up quickly as seen by the 2,593 receiving yards and 34 scores he had over his high school career, the last three seasons of which were played at three different high schools.
