Clifton Garrett is headed to LSU.
Garrett, the top-ranked linebacker in Illinois, is a four-star recruit and announced his decision at Plainfield South High School Tuesday afternoon.
Garrett even joked that he's "taking his talents" to LSU, a la Lebron James in "The Decision" in summer of 2010.
Garrett said he is looking forward to gearing up for the NFL and he thinks LSU will be a good platform for his professional career.
"I'm ready to play with the big boys in the SEC now," Garrett told Edgy Tim just after the announcement.
