With LSU banking on LF for 2014 class


I like the message LSU is telling the kid that you are the one we want but....LSU maybe putting depth in danger at the RB position. What if LF were to get hurt(hope this doesn't happen)but the kid still has a whole season to play. Is LSU actively recruting any other top backs to go along with LF? Currently LSU will be thin after this upcoming season and to put your eggs in one basket is scary to me. Alabama signs like 3 to 4 top backs a year and that doesn't stop the recruits from signing.LSU is just as good over the past 15 years as Alabama at the RB position.I'm just a little concerned that LSU seems to have sold their soul and possibly future depth on one kid. I hope he signs and runs for 2000 yards a year but this is scary

I expect 3 RB's signed for 2014. I think Darrell Williams will get his offer during one of the camps and Sione Palelei is another one to look at. There are some out of state targets as well.

This is my only worry, but Williams will be a beast too.

My only worry is whether we get LF. I know that will be the number 1 priority. Losing someone so good in our own back yd and having a recruiter like F Wilson who is from there would be the biggest disappointment I can ever imagine.

With this OL haul we just signed, LF really could be our 1st Heisman trophy winner since Cannon. Also an honest pitch to LF is that we use more than one back because of fatigue and not overuse a young mans ability where he has the chance to play at the next level and the promise he'll be the featured back, dah like who else?
