Saban has gotten the top LA player a few times now, correct?
No, well according to BOL maybe
ESPN may have ranked Tim Williams #1 in 2013, I'm not sure, but everyone else ranked Tre White #1. Per Rivals since Saban started at Bama in 2007 only twice has the #1 prospect in La not signed with LSU. Joe McKnight who went to USC and Landon Collins who signed with Bama. The other guy's Bama has gotten, like Lacy were not guys LSU fought for, for what ever reason. Williams, like Lacy, may turn out to be a good player, but LSU did not seem to really press for either in the end.
