The reason Boo left?
Didn't have the chest.
We'll never know. Either Ok State just won the battle, or LSU liked DW better than an injured Boo. One things for sure, LSU liked a healthy Boo.
I lean towards Ok State was more attractive. At LSU he probably thought he would always be in LF's shadow.
I remember another year in which LSU got a 5 star RB that everyone wanted, and also got a little known back with no major offers. On opening day little known Dalton Hilliard got the rock. After the third game, against Florida, he would never be little known again.
