Thats true, just harder to exploit bigger CBs cause they are harder to throw over/around. But everything you said was spot on. Have you ever seen the sports science with PP7? Its ridiculous how far away from him you have to throw it without him being able to get a hand on the ball

Tre'davious White is an elite CB prospect and the reason Alabama didn't recruit him hard has nothing to do with his height. He was 100% LSU from very early on.

And Mathieu was a complete game changer, and any team and coach in the country would have wanted him after what he did his freshman year.

It's not like LSU only takes small corners, when the talent in there as is the case with Mathieu or White you can overlook an inch or 2.


excellent post.

Look at the video featuring a Texas A&M receiver recruit vs. an LSU DB recruit. I'm worried this will happen in goal line situations. I need some reassurance.

If you're developing talent anyway, why not develop the players with the higher ceiling. 5'11' to 6'1" seems ideal for a CB to me.

Hope LSU is not giving these guys an inch, which means Tre White and Rickey Jefferson are really 5'9"

Why have you been ignoring that fact that Tre shut down RSJ the entire day minus that 1 clip you chose????

If you haven't noticed LSU is more interested in players that can step in early than players that need to be developed. I'll take a 5'9 corner with great hips, footwork and reactive skills over a 6'1 physical specimen at CB every time.

Or why pass on a guy in your backyard with great talent because he's short an inch.

Didn't notice the audio. Thanks for pointing that out.

Tre white and Jefferson look great on film and I'm anxious for fall camp.
