It's ok to qoute it for people who can't get to SI online.

2. LSU's recruiting recovery continues

LSU's 2012 class ranked a mere 18th nationally. Don't look for a repeat poor performance from the Tigers, who have been on fire since landing four-star offensive tackle Ethan Pocic on May 29, surging to fifth in the current class rankings. Les Miles and company recently landed a pair of four-star standouts in dual-threat quarterback Anthony Jennings from Marietta (Ga.) and strongside defensive end Frank Herron from Memphis (Tenn.) Central as well as the nation's top fullback in Lakeland (Fla.) Lake Gibson three-star Kennard Swanson. The Tigers currently boast 17 commitments and aren't likely to slow down, with a slew of Rivals100 prospects -- including Lake City (Fla.) Columbia five-star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, Sealy (Texas) four-star wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones, Baton Rouge (La.) University Laboratory School four-star defensive end Tim Williams and Jackson (La.) East Feliciana four-star athlete Kendell Beckwith, among others -- still seriously considering LSU.


They don't keep up with recruiting very well or they would have Greg Gilmore and Scott Pagano on the list.

And I realize they are stupid and all but it is still poor reporting to say that LSU was 18th last year when that figure doesn't take into account the class we signed last year.


That's right that last sentence IS worded correctly.

Did they mention the site that had us 18 left off 3 of our players and that the local scout from la left so they had some national tool from austin trying to eval la kids. The only service to include ALL of lsu recruits had us 6. Morons. No recovery needed. We stacked!

Are these the same 'experts' who had Morris Claiborne rated as the #55 Athlete? Just wondering. I'm pretty confident our staff knows what they are doing.

Why such a negative reaction to a positive article?

I think there has been a collective sigh of relief around here in the last few weeks. I was never one of these the sky is falling because we had on class that the "experts" didn't think was top 10, but over time it's been proven that to seriously compete for the national title you need to pull down top classes more often than not.

This should end up being a top 5 class. The whole identity of the defense will be drafted and with all those positions open you have to expect a better than average class. Miles isn't going to wait around for some in-state prima donna to spurn him at the last minute, so expect more out-of-state commits.
