LSU gets commitment from Texas kicker

BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU needs a kicker in its 2014 signing class and during its special teams camp on Saturday, it found what it wanted and got a commitment.

Cameron Gamble (Flower Mound, Texas/Flower Mound) committed after LSU's special teams camp, becoming the 12th Tiger commitment of the class.

Gamble is a student of both the Chris Sailer Kicking School and Kohl kicking camps. Both confirmed his commitment on Twitter Saturday night as did sources close to LSU.

Kohl's rated Gamble as the nation's ninth-best kicking prospect.

LSU lost starting kicker Drew Alleman to graduation after last season and returns junior kickoff specialist James Hairston. Either Hairston or a walk-on will handle placement kicks this season. Walk-ons Colby Delahoussaye and Trent Domingue handled placement kicks in the spring game, and LSU has added a preferred walk-on, true freshman Alex Kjellsten (Lake Charles, La./St. Louis) to its 2013 roster.
