it depends on who it is.
if you lose a top shelf LT like Cameron Robinson to WM, then I'll melt down, solely bc of the position and how much of a premium it is. Losing them to Bama would be pretty harsh considering that 1. they are a fierce rival, and 2. you play against this guy every single year.
Skilled positions guys, we can withstand some hits, but not too many, IMO. Not sure if we can risk the alienation of in-state talent for OOS anymore, especially with a power on each side fighting to cut into the LSU base. Guys like Fournette, Quinn, Noil, etc...those guys need to stay in state, IMO.
We say it all the time, these in-state classes will play for championships at LSU.
2011 is/was that way, and 2014 is that kind of class, IMO.
In a year where your state is projected to have so many homerun hitters (all positions across the board), you don't want to miss out on many of those.
