How does LSU Finish this Class?


We have 19 commitments, and expect to sign 25, so we have six open spots.

For the most part, these are the names that you will see as the days count down.

DB Adoree' Jackson
WR Malachi Dupre
DE Lorenzo Carter
LB Kenny Young
OT Derrick Kelly
DT Travonte Valentine
WR Emanuel Porter
DE Malik McDowell
DT Trey Lealaimatafao

And looks like LSU is making a very late push for DE Sione Teuhema, a Texas commit and someone who had a lot of interest in LSU early in the recruiting cycle but who committed to Texas due to distance. As of Monday evening, even Orange Bloods is posting that the two brothers, one a '15 prospect, are LSU bound.

Sunday News
Looks like Derrick Kelly Jr has made his decision, and things are trending towards the Florida Gators.

Monday News
News appears to be leaking from both the UGA and UF staffs that Lorenzo Carter has informed both he will be signing with UGA on Wednesday.



Unfortunately, Breeland Speaks has decided to "settle" with Ole Miss and doesn't appear to be considering the Tigers any longer.
Melvin Hollard Jr, a board favorite, doesn't seem to be a priority to the staff, and has committed to Minnesota. WR Rushing is also no longer being considered.
Damien Prince has chosen Penn St, not LSU, for his final official visit.
Bailey Granier may get yet another look but it appears LSU is not going to extend an offer, and he is back with Vandy as a commit.

LINK to most recent visitor weekend


Also an important note, there is still an outside shot at decommitments and/or grade problems that could keep current commitments from making it into this class. Most agree that the visits by Godchaux, Williams, and Clark are at least something to keep an eye on, even though they have repeated that they are solid to LSU.

Official Recruit Announcement Times
As these become available, please post in the thread so I can update

8am - Solomon Thomas - ESPNU
9:30am - Malachi Dupre - ESPNU
9:30am - Kenny Young - ESPNU
9:30am - Travonte Valentine - Not Televised
1:10pm - Adoree Jackson - ESPNU
2:00pm - Lorenzo Carter - ESPNU

This has got to light a fire under the staff (assuming if the rumors are true that these kids were all LSU I the past few weeks and even this morning), they have got to make some massive moves

Was hoping Cam and Hootie bolting was enough to do that, but oh well.

Going to take two or three recruits to fill the void by Willis, I think Adoree would be a great get for Tony, just don't feel good about it. Thankfully we have several athletes that can play WR, but I don't think we replace Speedy in this class.

I think there are tiers of need and likelihood.

1st tier:

Dupre
Valentine
Jackson

2nd tier:

Iheanacho
Young
Kelly

3rd tier:

Carter
McDowell
Hootie
Thomas
Speaks
Rodriguez
Williams

If we can get any 7 of these players, we'll have a very strong recruiting class

re: How does LSU Finish this Class?


You should add Hootie Jones to the list now, IMO. After Brown bolted for Alabama I can't see any way that we don't end up going hard after Hootie

My ideal six would be:
OLB Kenny Young
OLB/SS Hootie Jones
CB/WR Adoreé Jackson
WDE Lorenzo Carter
DT Travonte Valentine
OT Derrick Kelly

And then a lineman (your choice) for the 7th.
