Recruiting success?


So if LSU finishes it's high profile recruiting class with the additions of Beckwith and Willis who are highly probable, would you consider this a "great" recruiting class?

If not, who would you add of probable recruits to round out the class?

I already consider this class to be great (Top 5-10 class).

We have two good QBs, a slew of talent on defense coming in and a few JUCO players to fill in a few pieces.

If we get Willis, Beckwith and sneek Williams and/or Nkemdiche, this class will be a Top 3 if not the best class in the country.

yes, we have more 4-stars than any other team in the country on rivals and 247; that means depth

a phenomenal class IMO

As of now, I would consider the class as GREAT...not only are the players coming in really good but we are addressing a lot of positions of need. Beckwith and Willis will only make it that much better. I am sure we will take someone else that surprises us (RN, Carter, etc.)

LSU Achilles Heel right now is the OL and that is being addressed.

I completely agree. Any more highly touted commits will just be icing on the cake IMO.

I think the biggest difference with this class we have coming in is that it is incredibly DEEP. We have more players coming in that I can remember that could play NOW. Of course every high school to college player needs work, but so many of these kids are nearly college ready and that will work wonders going into the next few years ahead.

Again, LSU had the depth and talent that we've always been able to brag about. RELOAD BABY!

I stopped relying on ratings a few years ago and started looking at the actual kids who made it to the field. We have some special players and between Jeryl Brazil, Tre'Davious White, John Diarse, Hayden Rettig, Ethan Pocic, Anthony Jennings, Rashard Robinson, Greg Gilmore and Maquedius Bain, I'm very excited about our future.

All we need now is a new offensive coordinator. We have talent, just need to use it properly.

Depends on how many we lose before the ink becomes dry.

I don't think we'll land Willis. If his family has his blessing to come here and they're ok with distance, then he'll be all LSU. Unfortunately, I think distance is a major problem for him and his family.

But overall, I'd say this is a great class. Arguably top 5. That's elite. It's certainly better than last year in which we had a mediocre class by our standards outside the LBs. Jury is still out on that class but I think it was just more of a filler class than anything...

This class looks to have many recruits who will gain immediate PT if not starting jobs.

Might have been rated as mediocre, but they played a ton of ball for us in 2012 and made an impact.

Currently is a great recruit class, but could be extraordinary with a couple more key additions.

Whenever you land a top 10 class it is very good. Whether or not you finish at spot #3 or spot #9 doesn't matter. There is a lot of subjectivity in these rankings and there is also a lot of weight placed on quantity. So the aTm class gets a higher ranking due to the 33+ guys they sign versus our 25.

This is one very very damn strong class IMO...
