  1. Great read on what the LSU offense will look like in the fall and who might contribute. I'd love for the Tigers to have and "insane" offense. Then Bama couldn't just "line up and play" against LSU every year "because they never change anything". Times they are a changing. http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2017/03/rumblings_from_lsus_spring_foo.html
  2. Absolutely. At least down to the 325 - 330 range. I'm sure Mr. Moffitt could take care of that.
  3. 6' 2", 350, 4* OG from Marshall HS in Marshall, Texas has committed to LSU. Had a total of 14 offers overall and chose LSU over Texas, Oklahoma, TCU and Texas A&M. He is the #16 OG prospect in the country and the #33 prospect in Texas. Fits the "road grader" role to a tee and is the 12th commit in LSU's 2018 class. Welcome aboard Chasen!! http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/sports/lsu/article_019810f8-0ccc-11e7-b947-0bd88b038522.html http://www.nola.com/recruiting/index.ssf/2017/03/lsu_lands_commitment_from_texa_1.html#incart_river_index https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/lsu-football/lsu-goes-texas-pulls-commitment-talented-lineman/
  4. Good question. Stud was in charge of recruiting the NELA/Monroe area too and see where that got us. LSU is still trying to dig itself out of the hole he dug up there.
  5. That would be Jerry Tillery from Shreveport (Evangel). From what I remember, Les stayed on him pretty hard and Tillery made quite a few trips down to LSU during his recruitment. Bottom line though is that Notre Dame was his dream school and had been for quite a while. He liked Les and LSU but Notre Dame is where his heart was. He plays DT up there now I believe.
  6. Jaray Jenkins is a 4* on 247 and is definitely trending up. While Washington is currently a 3*, everything I read on him says he trending up as well and will likely get bumped up to the next level if he plays as expected this season. Both of these kids are ballers no doubt and the staff jumped on them early. I'm gonna trust the staff has done their homework on these kids and knows what they're doing here. You're spot on about Coach O finishing strong last class. Just holding on to everyone after Miles was fired was phenomenal, but the finish was awesome. Jacoby Stevens was the #1 safety in the country and Grant Delpit was #3. Jacob Phillips was the #1 ILB in the country. And don't forget K'Lavon Chaisson (DE/OLB) and Tyler Shelvin (DT) who were both rated #4 nationally at their respective positions. Not too shabby and certainly shows what O is capable of. Being "the guy" now can't do anything but help in the future. And you are right that LSU currently has only four commits out of the states Top 10, but this is only mid March and NSD is 11 months away. The Tigers now have 11 commits in this class if I'm not mistaken, which had been pretty unheard of for this time of year under CLM. LSU is also predicted to sign in the range of 27 to 30 kids in the coming class, so they've still got plenty of room left for the "big names" left on the board. As far as the remaining kids in the states Top 10, I'd say they are in sitting pretty or in the drivers seat for #5 Dare Rosenthal, a 4* DT from Ferriday. Also since the hiring of Matt Canada and the firing of David Feaster at Parkway in Bossier City, LSU has a pretty good shot at landing #2 Terrance Marshall (WR) and #11 Justin Rogers (QB). And while #9 Kenan Jones, a 4* WR from Berwick decommitted a few weeks ago, I don't think he's out of play for LSU. He just wanted to "feel the love" from other schools and enjoy the recruiting process. #4 Lawrence Keys, a 4* WR from McDonough 35 is also still firmly in play. I also don't see #6 Devonta Jason, a 4* WR from Landry-Walker, staying committed to Kansas for the next 11 months. Now I'm not saying LSU is going to land everyone of kids in the state Top 10, but they've got four now and have a pretty good shot at the rest. And they've got 11 more months to get them on campus, camps, etc. That's a lot of time for Coach O to work his magic. Only time and results on the field will tell, but I think before all is said and done that LSU likely ends up with at least 8 out of the Top 10. If they do, I can live with that. Of course a clean sweep would be awesome. Agree the fence isn't up yet, but I'd say Coach O and this staff have the building well underway. http://247sports.com/Season/2018-Football/RecruitRankings?InstitutionGroup=highschool&State=LA
  7. Agree. Have read that Alexander is up to around 225 now, which is still a bit light for playing inside. Maybe, like Duke Riley did, he can get up to about 230 by fall. Love that Divinity is getting some work inside. At around 235, he's got the size to play ILB. Don't know if he stays there, but I hope he does as I think LSU will have enough talent at OLB for him to stay inside. Then add Jacob Phillips and Tyler Taylor to the mix in the fall and LSU will be pretty salty at ILB.
  8. Not a prob Dad.
  9. Looks like that's the staff's intent alright and I like it. They're reaching out to kids and getting offers out much earlier than in the past. Seems like many times under the Miles regime, LSU was consistently behind Bama and other SEC/top programs in offering a lot of Louisiana's best talent, which hurt LSU in the past. Highly talented home state kids shouldn't have to sit and wait on an LSU offer when they've already got offers from Bama, Old Piss, FSU, etc. already in hand. Miles seemed to always wanted to work out a kid at camp first before offering which I can understand to a certain extent, but in many cases it let other top programs get their foot in the door much earlier than LSU. In depth analysis of game tape, previous camps, stats, talking to coaches, etc. should give you enough info on whether to offer a kid or not. If a kid has got SEC level talent, IMO the staff should know that well before they get to a camp. They should also know about any potential character or other issues previous to camp. Just about all the homework should be done well before a kid comes to camp. Camp should just be to confirm to the staff what they already know and maybe to identify a few more late bloomers or maybe some kids who may have slipped through the cracks somehow. This staff seems to be intent on not letting other programs make the initial move on top Louisiana players as was common in the past. LSU is making the early strike now. I don't think the fence is all the way up yet, but construction is well underway. I won't be totally convinced though until the Monroe/NELA area and Amite is firmly back in LSU's hands.
  10. I like this pickup. Great size and height, moves well from what I've read on him. Wouldn't be surprised to see a ton of offers rolling in for him now along with a good bump in ratings on the various sites. Just hope LSU can hang on to him if Moo U and Old Piss come calling.
  11. 6' 2", 173 4* WR from Jena HS has committed to the Tigers. Has scored 20 total TD's in each of the last two seasons. Last year, Jenkins caught 44 passes for 797 yards and 12 TD's. Has nice speed, 4.56 in the 40 yard dash and 10.8 in the 100. Great pickup for the Tigers and good to see another player from Cenla at LSU. Welcome aboard Jaray!! http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/sports/lsu/article_263e8682-0851-11e7-b844-db15407b8817.html http://247sports.com/Player/Jaray-Jenkins-90840?utm_source=247sports&utm_medium=ExternalEmbed&utm_campaign=CommitList http://www.nola.com/recruiting/index.ssf/2017/03/lsu_landed_a_dangerous_receive.html#incart_river_index
  12. I hate to see it because LSU's depth at center is now as thin as a sheet of paper. It's a blow no doubt. After Clapp, who has been injury prone to a certain extent during his career, all they have is RF Lloyd Cushenberry who has never played a game in his college career yet. That's it. I really have no clue if anybody else on the OL has ever played center before. Dodd provided crucial depth and insurance for Clapp. All I can say is that I hope the staff feels good about Clapp and Cushenberry carrying the load, but at the end of the day if the kid (Dodd) wanted to leave you can't force him to stay. I'm sure the staff tried to talk him in to sticking it out. Just keeping fingers crossed that Clapp stays healthy and Cushenberry develops and gets up to speed during the spring and fall. Signing a big time OC prospect in the 2018 class is now paramount IMO.
  13. OC Andy Dodd is transferring from LSU. Dodd, who graduates in May, has received his release from the Tigers and will look to play elsewhere for the 2017 season. As a result look to see Will Clapp to move over from left guard to center with a number of players, such as Maea Teuhema, Garrett Brumfield and Donavaughn Campbell set to compete for Clapp's former position and at right guard. Austin Deculus could possibly be in the mix as well. Lloyd Cushenberry likely looks to take over as the backup at OC behind Clapp. Guess Dodd saw the handwriting on the wall that playing time would be at a minimum this coming season and wanted to play more as a senior. Can't blame him there I guess. He'll have his degree and wants to play. Sure will hurt the depth on the OL though. Best of luck Andy and thanks for your time as a Tiger. https://www.seccountry.com/lsu/lsu-center-andy-dodd-set-transfer http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/sports/lsu/article_2e2273fa-f94b-11e6-94f6-7f4cf689b3f2.html
  14. They need to check into that. Soon!
  15. Damn strong commitment right there. I'm glad he's a Tiger!!
