Offensive lineman Matt Womack has committed to LSU, he tweeted Sunday.

Womack, a three-star prospect out of Hernando, Mississippi, is LSU’s 14th commitment in the 2015 class, a group that ranks No. 13 nationally in 24/7 Sports composite team rankings.

Womack’s commitment is non-binding. He can make it official on signing day in February.

Womack, 6-foot-7, 320 pounds, chose LSU after visiting campus over the weekend. His lead offers came from Mississippi State, Ole Miss and South Carolina. The tackle was seen as a heavy lean toward Ole Miss, according to several recruiting experts.

Ranked as the 130th offensive tackle in the nation in 2015, Womack is LSU’s third offensive linemen of the class, all of them tackles. He joins three-star Adrian Magee of Franklinton and five-star Maea Teuhema of Keller, Texas.

Womack told the Jackson, Mississippi, Clarion-Ledger that he could enroll early in January. Offensive line coach Jeff Grimes recruited Womack and told the tackle that he might start immediately.

“He said if I graduate in December I could come down and start learning the offensive in the spring and play as a true freshman my first year as right tackle,” Womack told the newspaper.

Womack transferred last summer from Hernando to a private school, Magnolia Heights in Senatobia, Mississippi.

Womack did not return multiple messages from The Advocate.

He told The Clarion-Ledger that the weekend in Baton Rouge clinched his commitment.

“After spending the weekend with the players and the coaches I figured out that this is where I want to be,” he said in a text to the newspaper. “It’s a great school and got along with everyone so much. While being down here I felt like I fit in perfect with everyone.”

Womack made his announcement on Twitter Sunday at 10:23 a.m.

“I’m a LSU Tiger! #GeauxTiger,” he wrote.

The message included a photo of Womack with Grimes and head coach Les Miles.
