  4. Orgeron hopes to land graduate transfer CB Shea Dixon - 53 minutes ago 3 (Photo: Stanford Daily) With LSU looking to add cornerback depth to the roster for the upcoming season, the Tigers are now planning to play host to Stanford graduate transfer Terrence Alexander, who will make a visit to campus next month, multiple sources confirmed with the Geaux247 staff. Following the team's first practice of spring camp a week ago, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron met with the media and shared his take on who the Tigers could add this offseason. LSU only signed 23 recruits in December and February, giving them the chance to use the two scholarships on either a transfer or current walk-on, or stash them to use next December as part of the 2019 recruiting class, which is made up of current high school juniors. With two spots available, at least one - it seems - will go to a graduate transfer cornerback, with Alexander the likely target. "We have a graduate transfer in mind," Orgeron said. "We feel like we have our top candidate. More than likely, we’re going to sign one. We have to get him on an official visit, get to meet him and stuff and (he’ll) compete." Alexander is a Louisiana native who signed with the Cardinal in the 2014 class, leaving John Curtis ranked as the No. 28 cornerback in the country on 247Sports and a Top 20 prospect in Louisiana's 2014 class, where he ranked ahead of LSU signees like D.J. Chark, Russell Gage and Donnie Alexander, all seniors on last year's roster. With Greedy Williams expected to start at one cornerback spot, Jontre Kirklin and Kary Vincent appear to be the top names competing for the other starting cornerback job, though the addition of Alexander, and the arrival of four-star defensive back signee Kelvin Joseph this summer, could shake things up in the secondary. The Tigers also moved former wide receiver Mannie Netherly to cornerback, and Kristian Fulton - who sat out last season but still participated in practices - still in the fold, though his exact status for the future is uncertain. "I envision (a graduate transfer cornerback) playing and giving him a chance to start," Orgeron said. "Obviously we have Kelvin Joseph coming in and we’re going to give him a chance to start at cornerback also. When it comes down to the season, we’re going to be fine. (LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda) is going to find out what those guys can do best, might play different coverages with those guys." The New Orleans native tested well coming out of high school, clocking a 4.45 40-yard dash and recording a 38.3" vertical jump. He was a part of three state title teams at John Curtis, enrolling at Stanford in 2014 and appearing in 13 games as a true freshman. He had 13 tackles and one interception on the year. Alexander's sophomore season saw him play in 14 games with 30 tackles, and in his junior season he played a reserve role in 13 games, also seeing time on kick returns. Alexander's senior season was cut short with an injury, though he recorded a pair of tackles and a pass breakup in the season opener against Rice.
  5. Went back and looked, Greedy had 4 DB's ranked higher than him in his class. He was the lowest rated DB in the class. The highest rated RB in that class, Devin White. So, the lowest rated CB and the highest rated RB from that class may be the first two Tigers taken in next years draft? One after switching positions, to the other side of the ball? Maybe the staff knows a little more than the paid scouts?
  6. Richard Sherman calls Bills CB Tre'Davious White 'a beast' By Kyle Silagyi | Buffalo Bills’ cornerback Tre’Davious White was nothing short of spectacular in his rookie season. The former LSU defensive back, who was selected with the 27th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, started all 16 games for the Bills in 2017, recording 69 tackles, 18 pass deflections, and four interceptions. White was a lockdown cornerback in 2017. According to Pro Football Focus, opposing quarterbacks had a passer rating of just 68.2 when targeting White. The 23-year-old established himself as one of the best young cornerbacks in the league last season, and players from around the league are starting to take notice. On Sunday afternoon, PFF sent out a tweet celebrating White’s catch percentage of 50.6-percent, the third lowest percentage among rookie cornerbacks since 2006. Four-time Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman replied with three simple words: “He’s a beast!” This is high praise coming from Sherman, who is undoubtedly one of the best cornerbacks in the league. The 29-year-old has recorded 367 tackles and 99 pass deflections over his seven-year career. This isn’t the first time that White has earned praise from an elite cornerback. Back in February, Arizona Cardinals’ defensive back Patrick Peterson stated that White has the potential to be in the “next great wave of DBs.” If his rookie season is any indication, White will be one of the best cornerbacks in the league in no time.

  8. A couple of the Draft books are out(Lindys and PRO NFL), haven't had time to look into them, in depth. Quick glance, Guice and Key will be off the board early, followed by Chark. The next one, Jackson, but one mock has KT2 going in the 2nd or 3 due to his size, and Jackson in the 3rd or 4th. Like I said, most every mock has the first three, then it's a movement. Some has Clapp as high as the 3rd, some later. Pocic went in the 2nd last year, Seattle drafted 11 players, none done better that Ethan, played in all 16 games, starting 11, and that's playing two positions on their line. Not many came close to what Tre White did last year, starter from day one, the Bills have a CB, that could hold down that position for years . Fournette is the other Tiger making his mark. Beckwith made his mark also in his NFL first year. Some are saying, the steal of last years draft, 4th round, stepped in after the second game, a guy that can play all three LB positions. In Lindys magazine, they look at the last 5 years drafts for each team, best and worst picks. The Falcons best and worst of 5 years, involves two Tigers. Best, Debo Jones, worst, Jalen Collins. Bills best of the last 5 years of drafting, Tre White. The Dolphins has Jarvis Landy as their best, but a guy that has moved on. On a side note, they list diamonds in the rough, players that teams picked in later rounds that too many passed over. One Tiger made that list, Jalen Mills. A 7th rounder, drafted two years ago, with 46 DB's taken before him. A guy that got a SuperBowl ring this year. Mills has always been that guy, he was the lowest rated player in his signing class at LSU. Said by every service that he wasn't even the best DB on his high school team. That went to an Echols kid that signed with UTx, finished his playing days atvZona St.

  13. Here are the latest po-boy recommendations. Okie just moved to the home of the #1 rated, Bear's in Covington. I agree with that ranking for them, when I drive home from Destin, we schedule a stop in Covington for lunch at Bears. Mrs. hou was raised in Mandy, and if Bears is full, we go to Bogue Falaya Park and eat there.
  14. Augie Garrido just past away. Just thrilled that LSU baseball recognized him recently in Baton Rouge.

  19. To add, Former LSU DC Phil Bennett's son: Sun Devil Football Names Sam Bennett Offensive Analyst Football Posted: March 12, 2018 TEMPE, Ariz. – Sam Bennett, who served as an offensive graduate assistant the last two seasons, will remain with the Sun Devil football program as an offensive analyst, announced today by head coach Herm Edwards. "I see a lot of potential in Sam Bennett and feel he will be an asset to our program," Edwards said. "I am looking forward to seeing him grow in this role while learning from the rest of the coaches on the staff. His relentless energy is an essential part of how we operate." Bennett will transition into the role of analyst after serving as an offensive graduate assistant the past two seasons. The Sun Devil offense averaged 32.6 points and 411.56 yards per game the past two seasons with Bennett as part of the offensive staff. Bennett worked closely with an ASU offense that finished as the 14th-highest graded unit in the FBS according to Pro Football Focus. Utilizing his background as a former offensive lineman in high school, Bennett worked extensively with an offensive line that paved the way for a 1,000-yard rusher and another 650-yard rusher. The offense scored 30 or more points 16 times in the two seasons Bennett served as an offensive graduate assistant. "I'm excited and appreciative for the opportunity given to me by Coach Edwards and the coaching staff to remain at ASU in this role," Bennett said. "My wife and I are excited to be staying in Tempe and continuing to be a part of the Sun Devil family. I look forward to a great spring and 2018 season here in Tempe." Bennett came to Arizona State to be an offensive graduate assistant after serving in a similar position at Rice University from 2014-16. While at Rice, he earned his Master's Degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences in 2016. Before taking a year off of coaching to work in the private business sector, Bennett coached football, basketball, and track at Scoggins Middle School in Frisco for one year after graduating from Texas Tech with a B.A. in Advertising in December of 2010. The son of 40-year coaching veteran and former Sun Devil defensive coordinator Phil Bennett, Bennett was a two-year letterman at SMU as a deep snapper, earning All C-USA Freshman honors in 2006. He graduated from Highland Park High School in Dallas, Texas, where he was a starter on the Scots' 15-0 state championship squad. He played on the offensive line, blocking for future Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford as well as handling the deep snapping chores. Bennett and his wife Stephanie reside in Tempe.

  21. Earlier
  22. once again, because i am at the series and not in the game topics, am doing a wrap up topic. hawaii was a series that easily could have been a sweep. although we lost the friday night game, it wasn't ugly some some have been. the pieces were there, they just didn't quite come together. there were some great defensive plays made. hess had 9 k's in 7 innings with only 1 walk and 5 hits. the killer was 3 of those 5 hits were solo shot home runs. offensively, the tigers had 10 hits but only 2 runs. the problem was leaving a guys on base, a lot of em in scoring position. my mind is fuzzy right now, but i think it was the fourth that bases were loaded and the inning ended in hitting into a double play. one play that stood out though was hal hughes made a beauty of a triple with a solid scorcher down the rf line. saturday was a good game with things turning and the tigers on top. it seemed like a flip flop of friday. the tigers were not lights out, but solid and the pieces fit together better with the hits, tho not overwhelming, were more timely. gilbert did not look as solid as the week before, going only 5 innings, but got the job done. hopefully he will soon be back in the form he was the last part of last season. we need that. i only got to stay the first three innings on sunday so can't comment as much on it. but the hitting was solid. if it was the bats or if hawaii didn't have depth to their staff, i don't know. but i'll take it. good contact and placement. hilliard is gonna be fun to watch develop as a pitcher. his first appearance, as a mid-week reliever a couple of weeks ago, my thought was "this kid shows promise". and that promise is coming together. as a freshman, he has a confidence, and it is going to be fun to watch him (hopefully) progress. only other comment is that bain continues to do whatever asked. pitch. hit. now play first base. i have no idea why bryce wasn't on first base (and didn't hit) on saturday) and only came in to sub for feduccia at catcher on sunday. is he in cpm's doghouse again? so anyone else... thoughts? observations?
  23. i found out about the time i hit hammond on i-12 going to the game the time had been moved. i only got to stay for the first three innings because i had to get back to the north shore and get zoe at camp. at least i got to see part of the game.
  24. Oh Man! You got me - took me this long to get the "joke".
