2014 and 2015/2016 LSU Basketball Recruiting


2014 Committed Players

Jalyn Patterson 6'1 (175) Alpharetta, GA (Montverde Academy, FL)
Transferred to one of the premier basketball prep programs in the country. Is a very reliable mid-range shooter, and a very good true PG. Given one year to hopefully back up Hickey he could be a very good and reliable PG. He has underestimated athleticism, very quick and crafty, and he keeps the ball on a constant string.
Concensus 3* on every site but is sure to jump up with a good year at Montverde.
AAU: Atlanta Celtics
Jalyn Patterson

Aaron Epps 6'9 (215) Tullos, LA (Tioga HS)
Not a heavily recruited player early on due mostly to his limited exposure at Tioga High, but came on late due to an outstanding summer circuit.
Athletic and versatile, Epps fits the mold of a CJJ recruit. He is long, athletic, runs the floor well, and for his size can handle the ball if need be and stretch the defense in certain situations, while having the defensive versatility to guard multiple positions.
Offers: Memphis, Oklahoma State, Mississippi State, and La Tech.

Elbert Robinson 7'1 (320) Garland, TX (Lakeview Centennial)
The first thing that comes to mind is overpowering. Robinson uses his size and athleticism to bully other players and create his offense. Even though he is a big body at 7'0 300+, he is a good shot blocker and has good outside touch. He is able to bury other post players inside then go to his left hook which is his best shot. He also keeps the ball up which is very important for a big man.
4* on every site (Top 60 Concensus Player)
Top 3: LSU, Georgetown, and Ohio State
Elbert Robinson

CJJ and staff have seemingly assembled another awesome and diverse class, that fills multiple needs and brings different types of players to an already extremely versatile LSU team.

The Blue Chipper: There is no question Robinson is the best and most highly touted recruit in this class. His sheer size gives LSU another weapon. Where Odo and Malone are more long, lanky, shot blocking centers, there is no question Robinson is the space eater that was needed. But what is so impressive about Robinson is that he has very good feet and hands for a big guy his size, and has nice touch from 14-16 feet.

The LA Talent: Aaron Epps until recently was a relatively unknown on the national stage, but after an impressive summer he exploded. He can shoot the mid-range jumper, runs the floor extremely well, and is a terror on the offensive glass. He adds to the bigs that can run and guard multiple positions, very undervalued and will be a good player in CJJ "system".

The Building Block: I use the term building block for Jalyn Patterson because that's exactly what he could become, a true PG that CJJ can rely upon to orchestrate the "system". He is very athletic IMO, and is a very good ballhandler. One year in a college weight training, and to gain experience behind guys like Hickey, Quarterman, and Hornsby, and this year at Montverde, he could very well be the steal of this class.

My dream class:
PF Craig Victor New Orleans, LA
SF/PF Leron Black Memphis, TN
PG/SG Davell Roby Memphis, TN
SG/PG Dante Exum Canberra, Australia
SF Jalen Lindsey Franklin, TN
I know we have atleast 3 scholarships for 2014, but you keep HS teammates Roby and Black together and add their bestfriend in Black. Solidify Victor the main target in this class and reel in Exum a Top 10 player.
Bakcup Plan
PF Craig Victor
SG Jordan Cornish
PF LaDamion Keys
PG/SG Dominic Magee

My fault , I knew one of the Australians was, I hope that possibly in two years we can be yelling
"Pass it to the Australians" if Exum comes and sticks around past one year.

Keys is super athletic and talented. AAU teammates with Craig Victor. Word is Keys is on the outside looking in as far as qualifying goes.

This LA 2014 class right now may not be really good on paper yet, but after this AAU summer season watch out, I think Dominic Magee, LaDamion Keys, and Tyree Griffin could all make a big jump.
Thx did not know about LaDamion Keys- watching his highlight film he looks like one of the best PF I have seen, and actually played against Malik Hines and Murrah this past year.

Thx I knew Touchet played for La Select, and it seems like you know a lot about the LA kids- what is your take on Griffin, Magee, or Keys.
I have seen Touchet, Victor, Cornish, and Thompson all play, and out of the those 4 only Victor is a guranteed take but I believe Cornish will more than likely be a part of this class.

Khadeem Latin 6’9 (195) Houston, TX (Westbury) Skilled big man that is deadly from the free throw area shooting wise. Is not a tremendous leaper but is very long and hustles. Interesting note is that he is related to former Texas Western legend David Lattin. Another guy that has ties to CJJ since his North Texas days, as he plays for one of the most respected AAU programs in America, Houston Select.

4* on every site, and a Top 20 PF: Down to all of Texas, Georgetown, Alabama, Oklahoma, and LSU.


Interesting

Griffin is a solid pg, lightning quick and has great vision. 5'7" but a pure pg on the floor. Keys is interesting. I really hope he gets to college because the scary thing is he is just learning how to play the game on an elite level. Everybody in new orleans knows who Dominic Magee is. He has the ability to take over games by scoring or distributing. Touchet left la Select for the new nike team which is based out of Baton rouge. I believe the Jones' staff wants to see what Cornish will do against high level competition in the the nike eybl this year before he gets an offer

This is a player that think in any other year would be much higher on the target list, just with the Bigs we brought in for 2013 and with Victor do not know how much room is available. He is definately one to keep an eye on though because of his effort and ies with CJJ, reminds me a lot of Storm Warren just much better in HS.

That's right I remember hearing about the new team, that basically the Red Storm program got merged into it or something to that effect. I think one of the areas LA has really lacked are the major AAU programs that consistently produce guys, yes you have your years like 06-08 for Sport Academy and the occasional very good NOLA team, and LA Select tries to throw money at making a good team, but would really help to have programs like the Houston Defenders/ Houston Select, or MBA Hoops out of Jackson. Now it is better to have ties with AAU coaches/programs than High schools, which is sad but true.

Unless a kid has parents that are involved in the recruiting process, what you said takes place nearly all the time. Totally different from football

I'm in Houston until August, I'll see if I could find anything out. My friend played against Mickey and said the one thing that's not shown on his highlights are his post moves it's very underrated
