I've come to realize there's not THAT much difference in talent between alot of these 4 and 5 stars. Sure, they look fine in their high school video highlights, but once they get to campus, it's a completely different story. There are learning curves, putting on weight, etc etc. There's no ONE recruit that will factor in LSU's W/L record on a yearly basis. Especially when the depth chart is pretty deep.

Keep an eye on 2016 U-High DB, Malik Antoine. He's gonna be a good one! And he will be a "true" sophomore next season, meaning he is 15 yrs old. None of this 17 years old in the 10th grade crap! I think y'all know how I feel about that!
He'll start for West Monroe as a sophomore at QB. In the 30 years I've gone to WM games and played I don't remember anyone being a full time starter as a soph. He was Eastbay All American in junior high, won MVP at Top Gun camp, was on Saban team at Bama last week. Here's an article on him from Clean last year. LINK Eta never mind his highlights are in OP. He's become more familiar with his height and is much more fluid runner now. He kinda looks like a baby giraffe in those highlights, just learning to run on those long legs.
Hope that qb Belton develops as a passer. He looks like Perriloux running the ball. JJ27, you have the scoop on him?
quote:Hopefully so. He turns 17 on June 23rd, so he will still be 17 when he reports to LSU in 2014. We will have to see if he has an inch or two left in him. He's 6'4" now. I'm just shy of 6'6". Maybe in the year or so he will stretch out a little bit more.
Wildman also said that Garret might grow some more. Could also end up being 6'5
Ive never even heard of a North Webster high school.
