re: TE DeSean Smith commits to LSU

i know star gazing doesnt really matter, but why isnt Smith a 5 star guy?

Because there are 17 5-stars in the country.

TEs usually dont get 5 stars unless they are a physical freak.

There has been 2 5 star TEs since 2005 per riavls. Martellus Bennet and Kyle Rudolph.

re: TE DeSean Smith commits to LSU
stars dont matter to me if we get arguably the best players at their position....guys that are top 10 at their positions are 5 stars in my book at this point in their development.....the rest is a roll of the dice depending on many factors to see if they pan out and keep improving

I don't care that much for ratings but since that is a popular deal and at least quantitative, I will point out that Rivals always starts off with about half the number of 5* they eventually assign. I think the number is 17 now...watch, it will probably end up around 32 5* at the end. Of the last verbals/possible verbals for LSU, I would list the following as most likely as the possible 5* . If I had to pick one, I would take Pocic as most likely because they love OT and he is right at the usual cutoff point already (#36)

Pocic - verbal
Rickey Jones - recruit
T Williams - recruit
Vanderdoes - recruit
Goodman - recruit

If you have no idea who the hell I am, click here or here.

re: TE DeSean Smith commits to LSU
Well spoken guy. I didn't see the spring game so I don't know how much the offensive philosophy changed or did not change. I would be shocked however if the EXECUTION in the passing game isn't much better. To be honest, the last 4 years, when the QB went back to pass, I was just hoping the pass wouldn't be intercepted or the QB sacked. With Mettenberger after watching him in the NC JUCO game, when he goes back, I expect a completition. That isn't offensive philosophy...that is execution.

Great link. Sounds like a good kid.

re: TE DeSean Smith commits to LSU
Actually, someone gave the correct answer IMO earlier. He claimed that in the last 7 years only 2 5* went to TEs. Using Rivals as I usually do in such things, if everything were equal, you have say 33 5* each year. There are 22 positions on offense and defense. IF they were spread the same, in 7 years you should have had about 10 or 11 5* TEs...you had 2. That pretty much says it all.
