Goodman visiting LSU this week!


LINK

For non-ESPN insiders, here's a smaller version of the story:

Simply put, it's the "DBU" reputation of LSU, which has put a long list of defensive backs to the NFL in recent years, most notably Patrick Peterson, one of the West's most notable NFL stars with the Arizona Cardinals.

"Definitely, it plays a big part," he said. "I want to play at the next level and LSU has the reputation for doing that."

Goodman is considering the possibility of joining his friend and fellow ESPN150 member Priest Willis, another Western star from Tempe (Ariz.) Marcos De Niza, in Baton Rouge with the Tigers. Willis, also uncommitted, has LSU on his short list.

Baton Rouge will be Goodman's third official visit, having already made visits to UCLA and Oklahoma, with the one to see the Sooners coming last weekend.

"It was OK," he said. "A nice visit. I learned a lot."

Now he's looking forward to Baton Rouge and LSU is looking forward to trying to accomplish a rarity: A trifecta of West Coast recruits in one recruiting class at LSU.

The Tigers already have a commitment from Los Angeles quarterback Hayden Rettig, who was scheduled to begin his spring semester at LSU this week. Adding the defensive backs -- huge in a year when Louisiana is uncharacteristically short on safeties, in particular -- would be a huge feather in the Tigers' recruiting cap and a testament to reach of the LSU brand, which seemed to take a bit of a hit with the Chick-fil-A Bowl loss to Clemson.

Landing one or both would allow the Tigers to keep the "DBU" brand alive. Willis is versatile, with the size and physicality to play safety and the coverage skills to be a Peterson-like big, fast cornerback. Goodman is a tall, lean safety with the reputation of being a physical tackler with the athleticism to help against the passing game.

They seem like solid candidates to continue LSU's run of top-notch defensive backs. But will they find they feel at home away from the ocean and the desert and near the gulf and the bayou?

Goodman's coming to find out this weekend.

"I'm looking to get down there and seeing what it's all about," he said.

If Goodman likes us the best, we may get him and Willis both.

That would be a nasty backfield with of course, Brazil and Cutrer.

Good info. I just hope that he feels at home with the coaching staff and the players make him welcome.. Hopefully he'll feel that family atmosphere all the players talk about.

DBs don't stop passing attacks, the front seven does that! Just like the OLine makes the running back. If you give a QB time he'll carve up any secondary.

i really like how you took something that someone was excited about (DB depth/talent) and turned it into a knock against the team (DL depth/experience). well played. next time, try to work in something about miles and, hell, include obama as well.
