I hope we offer Sims as well but I'm so sick of how LSU not offering an instate player is thought to be some sort of slight these days. Big deal, you weren't offered in February of 2013 when you won't sign till February of 2014.
Seriously, people freak out so early on this. We have 3 in-state WRs who have offers who are considered better than Sims. THREE. I mean it's not like Sims is the top WR in the state or something. Yes he's very good, but if the staff only wants 4 WRs, and they feel good about all 3 they offered in the state and 1 big time OOS guy (or, dare I even bring him up - D'haquille Williams), Sims wont get an offer unless they feel like we'll lose someone else they feel is better.
Would anyone honestly be upset if we planned to take 4 WRs and they were Quinn, Noil, Dupre and D'haquille Williams? Does anyone want Sims over any of those 4? Yes, he's a great talent, but is he better than those guys?
On top of that, between now and NSD we'll offer SEVERAL more LA kids. Look how many we offered from Feb. 2012 to days before Feb NSD 2013.
