BATON ROUGE – LSU will unveil and promote its 2016 football signees, a class that is expected to be ranked as the nation’s No. 1 group, on billboards in certain areas in the state of Louisiana.

LSU started its #GreatnessBeginsHere Signing Day campaign on Friday as the Tigers’ five early enrollees began appearing on billboards in the Baton Rouge and New Orleans area.

National Signing Day is Wednesday, Feb. 3 and LSU will celebrate the day by revealing members of the 2016 class on billboards in Baton Rouge, New Orleans and along Interstate 20 in Monroe.

The billboards will feature a head shot of the player, along with their hometown and high school. Fans are encouraged to take pictures of the billboards and tweet them to @LSUfball as well as tagging them with the #GreatnessBeginsHere hashtag.

There will be a total of 16 billboards featuring LSU signees on National Signing Day – eight in Baton Rouge, five in New Orleans, and three in the Monroe area.
