The past six recruiting classes have included 17 players from Louisiana ranked in the Rivals100; only four did not sign with LSU. In the class of 2014, Louisiana has two players ranked as five-stars and three others in the Rivals100 with four-star designations entering the spring period


quote:

LSU recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson said steps taken by the staff are the reason for the success.


quote:

The class of 2014 is headlined by New Orleans (La.) St. Augustine running back Leonard Fournette and West Monroe (La.) High offensive tackle Cameron Robinson.


I think we'll have to recruit a great tailback to come forward if you look at what we'll need," Miles said. "We will need a great one of those guys that has great speed and ball skills and can run with power. I'm thinking of him right now."

It was a message that Fournette knew was intended for him.

"I take that as a compliment," he said. "I'm feeling the same way. They're waiting on me."

Robinson is the top-ranked player at OT and the No. 7 overall player in the country.

He has said it is a two-horse race between LSU and Alabama.

"Both schools are almost identical, so I can't just point out one thing that one school does different than the other one," Robinson told Rivals.com.

Laurence Jones of Monroe (La.) Neville checks in at No. 25 in the Rivals100.

The 6-foot-2 safety has already been on campus in Baton Rouge and took his mother. He said that she will need to sign off on his decision and he has known only LSU football his whole life.

"Most likely she'll be the main reason I choose a college," Jones said. "Everybody says I'm a momma's boy."

Not disappointing mom might make it easy for LSU in the recruitment of the No. 42 player in the country, Gerald Willis III.

Willis is the younger half-brother of Landon Collins, who was one of the four players to leave the state when he chose Alabama in the class of 2012. His mother, April Justin, expressed her displeasure on national television.

"I feel LSU's a better place for him to be," Justin said. "LSU Tigers. No. 1. Go Tigers."

Willis said he is still open to any school, but he also admitted that LSU is likely the leader

"Right now, I am liking LSU, of course," he said. "They're my home state school, and I would love to represent Louisiana; but at the same time, I'm keeping my options open.

The rest of the class elected to stay with the in-state power. Chad Jones was the No. 14 player in the country and a five-star. DeAngelo Benton was at No. 41, Stefoin Francois at No. 63 and Drake Nevis at No. 93.


I forget Francois was so highly recruited

this is recruit talk for, "I'm gonna let some institutions of higher learning wine and dine me then sign with the home state team."

Recruiting LA isnt as easy as people think. Every top program is trying to dip into our talent. Not everyone wants to be in baton rouge.

I dont have issue with it. Saban did resurrect the program and start the run here. He deserves credit for that, regardless of how much you hate him.
