The past six recruiting classes have included 17 players from Louisiana ranked in the Rivals100; only four did not sign with LSU. In the class of 2014, Louisiana has two players ranked as five-stars and three others in the Rivals100 with four-star designations entering the spring period
LSU recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson said steps taken by the staff are the reason for the success.
The class of 2014 is headlined by New Orleans (La.) St. Augustine running back Leonard Fournette and West Monroe (La.) High offensive tackle Cameron Robinson.
I think we'll have to recruit a great tailback to come forward if you look at what we'll need," Miles said. "We will need a great one of those guys that has great speed and ball skills and can run with power. I'm thinking of him right now."
It was a message that Fournette knew was intended for him.
"I take that as a compliment," he said. "I'm feeling the same way. They're waiting on me."
Robinson is the top-ranked player at OT and the No. 7 overall player in the country.
He has said it is a two-horse race between LSU and Alabama.
"Both schools are almost identical, so I can't just point out one thing that one school does different than the other one," Robinson told Rivals.com.
