  1. One of the early NFL Draft Guides was Ourlad's, I was asked at times about my thoughts on LSU players. When they asked me about Tony Moss, I gave a good writeup. One of my quotes, "The first guy that hits him after a catch, never brings him down!" I have the guide somewhere in a box.

  4. 2017 LSU Verbal From DT Neil Farrell

    LSU lands commitment from Alabama DT Neil Farrell Sam Spiegelman @samspiegs Purple Reign has hit Alabama. LSU landed a surprising commitment from 3-star defensive tackle Neil Farrell on Tuesday evening. The 6-foot-4, 295-pound Mobile, Ala., native is rated as the No. 39 defensive tackle and chose the out-of-state Tigers over Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina, Florida State and Southern Cal, among many others. Farrell joins fellow defensive linemen Tyler Shelvin and Aaron Moffitt in LSU’s 2017 recruiting class. There is no indication whether the commitment comes after 5-star Texas defensive tackle Marvin Wilson and top junior college defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs opted not to attend the team’s barbecue this past week. LSU defensive line coach Ed Orgeron and area recruiter Dameyune Craig spearheaded Farrell’s recruitment. Farrell is the 18th commitment in LSU’s current recruiting class and the fourth since Friday.

  5. Big body? LSU lands 6-4, 295-pound Neil Farrell of Alabama BY ROSS DELLENGER | Published Jul 26, 2016 at 9:09 pm | Updated Jul 26, 2016 at 9:23 pm LSU assistant Ed Orgeron said Tuesday morning that the Tigers, switching to a 3-4 defense, need bigger bodies on the defensive line. That night, he and receivers coach Dameyune Craig reeled in one. Neil Farrell, a 6-foot-4, 295-pound defensive tackle from Mobile, committed to LSU on Tuesday, giving the Tigers an 18th verbal pledge in a 2017 class ranked top five nationally. "The games we didn’t play well in last year, (their) offensive line averaged 325. We averaged 275," Orgeron said Tuesday morning on ESPN 104.5's Culotta and the Prince. "That's not an excuse, but we need to get better." Orgeron and Craig, a Mobile native who joined the Tigers staff in February, were the recruiters on Farrell, according to Farrell, a Murphy High product, had offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State and a host of others. He's ranked as the 39th-best tackle in the 2017 class. He's LSU's fourth commitment in the last five days. LSU offered Farrell in February. The Crimson Tide, Seminoles and Southern Cal offered the prospect over the summer.

  6. 2017 OT Austin Deculus Commits to LSU

    LSU lineman commit Austin Deculus squats an insane amount of weight Sam Spiegelman @samspiegs Austin Deculus has rapidly built up his frame leading up to his senior season and his early enrollment at LSU. Naturally, that has coincided with the Tigers offensive tackle commit earning 5-star status and ascending to the No. 6-rated prospect at his position for the Class of 2017. During LSU’s satellite camp in Houston last month, Deculus told SEC Country that he had been spending much of the spring and summer inside of the weight room. That was exceedingly obvious on Tuesday afternoon when the lineman’s Cy-Fair High School (Cypress, Texas) coach posted a video of Deculus squatting a school-record 585 pounds. After the 6-foot-6, 331-pound future Tiger maxed out, he had nothing else to say but this: “Next stop: 600 (pounds).”
  7. LSU 2018 Football Targets

    Eye on the Tigers: Two of LSU’s top 2018 targets are a package deal Sam Spiegelman @samspiegs 2 LSU received 3 commitments in as many days during and in the aftermath of the team’s elite prospect camp last weekend. LSU’s 2017 class is up to 17 pledges, leaving 8 more spots open to round out the collection heading into the fall. So, let’s take a quick look ahead to the 2018 crop. 5-star wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. and 4-star dual-threat quarterback Justin Rogers were on hand for Thursday’s camp session. Rogers and Marshall looked the part of elite recruits, as Rogers impressed offensive coordinator Cam Cameron so much that he finally procured his offer from the in-state power. Marshall has held his offers for some time now and recently informed SEC Country that he’s high on LSU and expects wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig to recruit him the hardest. That was obvious on Thursday as Craig paid much of his attention to the 5-star talent from Parkway High School (Bossier City, La.), who put on a show as the top wideout of the camp. 2018 La. 4-star dual-threat QB Justin Rogers (Sam Spiegelman/AJC) There have been rumblings that because Marshall and Rogers now hold LSU offers, they might be a package deal. Well, they are. Rogers told SEC Country that LSU was already in his top three along with TCU and Arkansas, and he and his high school teammate Marshall are looking to continue to play with one another in college. LSU is among the top schools for the Parkway standouts, but both are waiting to see the offense open up a bit more this season. That’s seemingly a regular comment out of recruits and LSU targets on the offensive side of the ball. Many of the quarterbacks and receivers the team is targeting are waiting to see if Cameron’s promise of a spread-style attack with a heavier emphasis on the passing game will come to fruition this fall. All indications are that LSU has already implemented a more dynamic aerial attack with more short passes. With some of the incoming weapons like quarterbacks Lowell Narcisse and Myles Brennan, and receivers like Stephen Guidry, Jhamon Ausbon and Mannie Netherly, the Tigers look like they’ll be equipped to do wonders through the air not only this fall but many more to come. The latest on the RB hunt 5-star Mississippi running back Cam Akers was a no-show for LSU’s barbecue on Saturday, which is a minor indication the team is slowly losing steam with the nation’s No. 2 back. A source close to Akers told SEC Country he is planning to release a top six soon, and LSU has a strong chance to be included. 5-star Mississippi RB Cam Akers (Sam Spiegelman/AJC) However, it’s become obvious that Ole Miss is the clear-cut front-runner for Akers. Like many of the other schools that remain in the hunt for the Clinton, Miss., product, LSU already has a running back commitment in its 2017 class. The same goes for Alabama, Tennessee, Ohio State, Michigan and Georgia. Not surprisingly, Ole Miss does not. Akers is getting courted by LSU lineman commit and fellow Magnolia State product Saahdiq Charles, who is one of the team’s most proactive recruiters. However, Akers is also close friends with Ole Miss commit Willie Gay. Because of Jabbar Juluke’s late efforts and the enticing possibility of succeeding Leonard Fournette in the Tigers backfield, LSU has a chance to crack Akers’ top three or four. However, the in-state Rebels have long been considered the most likely landing spot for the talented back, and the fact he didn’t make the 3-hour trek to Baton Rouge, La., on Saturday is a bit of a red flag for LSU’s chances. If not Akers, then who? Bruce Jordan-Swilling is the name I continue to trot out time and time again. I know the 4-star athlete announced this spring that he plans to play linebacker at the next level, but for now, he continues to be a standout member of the Brother Martin (New Orleans) backfield, where he was an All-State running back in 2015. Jordan-Swilling made the stop Thursday at LSU and returned on Saturday for the barbecue. He has a great relationship with Juluke, his area recruiter, who according to multiple sources really wants Jordan-Swilling to come to LSU as a running back. Here’s the holdup: Les Miles wants Jordan-Swilling, but as a linebacker. 4-star Louisiana ATH Bruce Jordan-Swilling (Chris Kirschner/AJC) Jordan-Swilling played running back and outside linebacker during his freshman and sophomore seasons before transitioning into a full-time backfield workhorse last season. That translated to about 2,000 yards and 30 touchdowns, and just about every honor and distinction that come along with that kind of production. Though Jordan-Swilling has said he plans to play linebacker in college, he also backed off those comments to SEC Country, indicating he has not finalized any decision. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound New Orleans native loves having the ball in his hands, and he is as dynamic of a running back as there is in the state. Based on watching him play the last 3 years and seeing him in the backfield this spring, I consider him one of the top running backs in the 2017 recruiting class and easily the best at the position in Louisiana. Jordan-Swilling worked out as a linebacker during LSU’s June camp in front of Miles, which is why the head coach so desperately wants him. However, that could quickly change once members of the recruiting staff get an opportunity to watch Jordan-Swilling on offense this fall. Once the LSU coaches realize they’re not going to be able to land Akers, Jordan-Swilling as the running back should become their top order of business. The Tigers hold a commitment from Clyde Edwards-Helaire, but at 5-foot-7 and 191 pounds, he’s more of a scatback. The team needs a downhill bruiser like Jordan-Swilling, and if Juluke continues to push for the 4-star athlete, he may ultimately get what he wants — and that’s the Catholic League’s best running back prospect since some cat named Leonard Fournette, who also has had some success playing in LSU’s backfield.

  12. WikiLeaks emails reveal DeRay Mckesson was vetted as a potential DNC surrogate Tim PrudenteContact ReporterThe Baltimore Sun Activist DeRay Mckesson vetted as DNC surrogate, according to emails released by WikiLeaks. Baltimore civil rights activist and former mayoral candidate DeRay Mckesson was vetted as a possible surrogate for the Democratic National Committee, according to internal party emails published by WikiLeaks. The activist website released on Friday nearly 20,000 emails from top officials in the committee. "Hey team, can we please vet DeRay Mckesson ... to act as a surrogate for us at a young professional event possibly featuring the Chair?" party official Jordan Vaughn asked. In response, a DNC staffer noted Mckesson's activism in the Black Lives Matter movement and his meetings with White House officials and presidential candidates, including Bernie Sanders. The staffer reported that Mckesson had no liens, bankruptcies or criminal record, but noted that he had mistakenly tweeted that a white man shot a TV reporter and cameraman in Virginia. Mckesson, who was named chief of human capital for Baltimore's public schools last month, addressed the WikiLeaks release on Twitter. "I've never been a surrogate for Bernie, Hillary, or the DNC," he said. "I have attended events hosted by Bernie, Hillary & the DNC over the past year." Charges dropped against DeRay Mckesson after Baton Rouge arrest He said he has met with Clinton, Sanders, President Barack Obama and "countless others, discussing pathways to solutions." Mckesson declined to comment beyond his tweets.
