LSU does not recruit the state of alabama very hard. Miles never coached in Alabama, in comparison, Bama staff has inroads to Louisiana and has uses that as an advantage. La has more talent than alabama, thus they come here more often.
Bama goes head to head with UGA just as much as they do with LSU for recruits. They recruit Georgia as much or more than La.
Is it that LA kids are not entranced as much by LSU as Alabama kids are by Bama/Auburn?
The best player in Alabama last year went to FSU.
I do know that we get Texas/Florida
Who has more talent Texas/Florida or Alabama?
Its easier to pull kids from huge states like Texas, and Florida than it is from Bama. Kids that live in Bama are usually brought up Bama/Auburn and it's a tougher pull for LSU than other places.
