July 5, 2024

Class of 2025 four-star EDGE Damien Shanklin‍ of Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central has announced his commitment to LSU.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Shanklin chose LSU over Alabama, Ohio State and Tennessee.  Notre Dame, Tennessee and many others were also involved.

“I just fell in love, being there, I felt like I was at home and on top of that talking to Coach Peoples, Coach Kelly and Coach Baker... being around them feels like i’m around the same people I’m around at home,” Shanklin said.

LSU now has 15 commitments for the class of 2025 with Shanklin’s pledge.  He joins LaJesse Harrold‍ as LSU’s two ends currently committed.

Shanklin is being recruited to LSU by Tigers Edge Rushers Coach Kevin Peoples.  He finished his junior season with 66 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, three sacks and one interception.  

The Indiana prospect is a consensus National Top-150 prospect across all recruiting networks.
