Am I wrong?
I'm the last one to freak out over a recruit, but to say that an elite LT is no loss is not true.
No you are not wrong. If CRob chooses Bama it is a big loss for 2 reasons. First being projected as anywhere from the #1 to #3 recruit in the nation means simply he is a difference maker and expected to start and contribute big-time when he is a freshman, become a multi year All-American along with eventually playing on Sundays. That is what that means when you are ranked that high in the nation. Just ask any scout if that is what they mean when they put the recruit that high in the rankings and I promise you they will all say yes.
And second losing that LT to Bama, which has been and will continue to be, the team we fight year in-year out to win the West and the SEC, is that much more of a blow.
If we lose CRob to Bama, this will really suck no matter how anyone tries to spin it. It will suck. Will it be the end of the world for LSU football? Absolutely not. We will sign other good OL? Absolutely yes. But this will definitely hurt and he is a difference maker, no matter what people say or think. Just look at it, what are the premier positions coming out of college football right now that get drafted the highest besides the QB? Tackles and DE
