Below is the basketball recruiting list for 2014 for LSU, as I currently know it. It is early and this info is very raw. As in our other threads, there will be many changes, updates, additions and subtractions. I welcome all contributions and corrections.

D'Angelo Allen (SF, 6-6, 185) Dallas Kimble. 4-star recruit ranked No. 72 nationally. Has a slew of offers from top programs. LSU has not offered but has shown interest and is considering an offer. Offers from Arkansas, Texas A&M, Marquette, Oklahoma, Providence, Oregon, Texas, Texas Tech, SMU and Oklahoma State. Many other programs, such as Kansas and Georgetown are interested, but have not offered.

Dante Exum (SG, 6-5, 185) Australia. His father Cecil Exum played at North Carolina with Jordan and Worthy and professionally in Australia, where the family remained after his career.

Jordan Cornish (SG, 6-4, 180) Brother Martin, New Orleans. Currently unranked on Rivals, but is a 3-star on Scout. Is a strong candidate to be a Rivals 150 member. Considering LSU, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and others.

Lucas Antunez (PG, 6-1) A Spanish point guard currently living in Houston and looking at U.S. high schools. Was scouted by LSU at the Reebok Breakout Challenge. Also being recruited by Baylor, Rice, UCLA, Texas A&M, Florida, Temple and Central Florida. See link for more info

Davell Roby (PG, 6-3, 180) White Station, Memphis. 3-Star point guard that has been offered by LSU. Has also been offered by Arkansas, Auburn, Missouri, Ole Miss and Wake Forest.

C.J. Anderson (SG, 6-4, 175) Arlington, Memphis. 3-Star shooting guard continues LSU's attempts to get involved with Memphis talent. Also considering Arizona State, VCU, Georgia Tech and Mississippi State.

Chris Sandifer (SG, 6-4, 175) Junipero Serra HS, Gardena, Ca.; 4-Star shooting guard that is a longshot for LSU. Is also being recruited by all the big West Coast schools, USC, UCLA, Arizona, Utah, Colorado.

You still think Craig is overrated? He's blowing up (like last summer) the AAU national circuit this summer. From speaking with his father this morning, he said that he thinks the mental part of the game is now catching up with his physical abilities. I'm looking forward to him dominating LA basketball this fall

In. It's good to see that Louisiana is producing talent again. It reminds me of 2005-2008

Reginald Johnson is a great high school basketball player. He has no shot at playing at LSU.

Guy with the last named Roby just makes too much sense for south Louisiana. Good offer list at this stage to only be a 3-star.

Looney's team was playing Texas prospect Emmanuel Mudiay's team, so I wonder which player LSU was actually checking out. Both are studs. I also wonder which coach it was.

ETA: I do know that Robert Kirby was on Looney at Georgetown, and the Hoyas are still players for him.
