2. LSU's recruiting recovery continues
LSU's 2012 class ranked a mere 18th nationally. Don't look for a repeat poor performance from the Tigers, who have been on fire since landing four-star offensive tackle Ethan Pocic on May 29, surging to fifth in the current class rankings. Les Miles and company recently landed a pair of four-star standouts in dual-threat quarterback Anthony Jennings from Marietta (Ga.) and strongside defensive end Frank Herron from Memphis (Tenn.) Central as well as the nation's top fullback in Lakeland (Fla.) Lake Gibson three-star Kennard Swanson. The Tigers currently boast 17 commitments and aren't likely to slow down, with a slew of Rivals100 prospects -- including Lake City (Fla.) Columbia five-star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, Sealy (Texas) four-star wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones, Baton Rouge (La.) University Laboratory School four-star defensive end Tim Williams and Jackson (La.) East Feliciana four-star athlete Kendell Beckwith, among others -- still seriously considering LSU.
