I love how people choose whatever recruit is considered most likely to leave, then they obsess over him and ignore all the other players that we are getting.
[OP is] a moron.
The last "once in a decade OT" will be starting for LSU at LT this season.

The issue is whether we can call this year's recruiting effort a success. By happenstance, we have a ton of hihg four and five star talent in the state or otherwise instictively inclined to come here

We don't have all those folks, Afro.

And all, except Fournette, rank lower.

Some of our top recruits are diaspora recruits, effectively, La. recruits.

So, yes, our effort will definitely be tarnished

The point is not, as some people imagine, whether a single player makes or breaks a program. The issue is whether we can call this year's recruiting effort a success. By happenstance, we have a ton of hihg four and five star talent in the state or otherwise instictively inclined to come here.

When someone comes in to directly challenge us on an exceptional in state talent like Robinson, it is a test of mettle as recruiters. Alabama has made Cam Rob a priority. He has no special ties there. Can we keep him home? If not, we can't call this a successful campaign, no matter how many other good athletes fall in our lap.
Sometimes it seems LSU doesn't recruit N. La. as earnestly as it does S. La. (I know, local recruiting is more convenient and efficient). ...
Alabama recruits OL as if their program depended on it. ...
Alabama places a premium on great OL and I look for them to concentrate their La. efforts on Cam R. They'll give lip service to the rest and go thru the motions, but I think Cam R is the priority. This will be a real test for Les, IMO....
It may be time for some of the posters to get real and cut Coach Cristobal some slack. It's pretty well known in D-1 coaching ranks that Coach Saban sets down, in memo form, the points that must be communicated to a recruit in every communication. Tweets, emails and poine calls are all subject to ...
