LSU's recruiting class just got a huge jolt thanks to five-star offensive tackle Chidi Valentine-Okeke commitment to LSU Thursday morning, via NOLA.com.

After rumors circulated that Alabama didn't have room for the recruit in this class, Valentine-Okeke got a visit from head coach Les Miles and offensive line coach Jeff Grimes Wednesday night, which seemed to turn the Tide.

To really get hold of how big of an upset this is, you'd need to venture over to 247sports Crystal Ball, which had the offensive lineman at 62 percent to Auburn, 17 percent to Georgia, 17 percent to Alabama and just four percent to LSU.
