LSU is DBU. I'm not using that or tossing it out as a cliche.
But the last 4 years, we've churned out not good, but elite defensive back prospects. In approximately 60 days, it'll be easy to say that:
LSU has produced multiple Top 3 Round draft picks at Safety in the past 4 years.
LSU has produced multiple Top 10 draft picks at Corner in the past 4 years.
LSU has produced over a half dozen All-SEC as recognized by coaches or media in the past 4 years. Literally, that's about 1.5 per year.
LSU lost a DB Coach to the NFL, and their first year DB Coach recruited & developed two Freshman All-SEC & one Freshman All-American, along with several All-SEC & one All-American at DB this year.
LSU has produced a Heisman Finalist as a DB.
All of these prospects included one five-star (PP21), three four-star (Reid, Simon & Loston) & three three-star prospects (Claiborne, Taylor & Mathieu).
At this point, our evaluation, recruiting, development, scheme & production at the position of Defensive Back is above reproach.
Essentially, what this boils down to is this:
LSU can take 2-star prospects and turn them into a #6 pick. We can take a 3-star prospect and turn them into a Heisman Finalist, All-American, Bednarik-Award winner.
If LSU can do that with marginal, under-the-radar-type recruits from in-state, looking at our track record with kids at the DB position of all levels of the stargazing spectrum, what do you think LSU is capable of with Tony Brown?
On potential alone, Brown-in LSU's system-is limitless.
