What class is he in? 2014 or 2015?
I think i remember his being a case where he was 2015 but would be too old to play his senior year, and was trying to reclassify because of this. Haven't heard anything since.
Anybody have any insight?
Also, how big is he now?
Could also be a future gua...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| 2015 Instate WRs - phison on 12/23/13 at 11:57 am|
The class of 2015 is loaded with talent, yet again, at several skill positions.
How many WRs do y'all see LSU taking in the class of 2015? Assuming we sign 4 or so WRs this cycle
Some of the talented 2015 WR prospects:
Tyron Johnson - lsu offer
Jazz Ferguson - TE
Derrick Dillon - ATH
| LSU Recruiting Board|| Numbers Update - phison on 12/20/13 at 8:13 pm|
According to my count and projected attrition, LSU can sign a full class of 25 is there one more scholarship freed up.
I went under the assumptions that:
Hill, Blue, OBJ, Landry, Collins, Freak, Ego all leave early even though they had remaining eligibility
Hilliard returns despite being draft ...

| Tiger Rant|| Players at new/multiple positions - phison on 8/7/13 at 3:27 pm|
Thinking about Ronnie Feist and Jarret Fobbs prompted me to start this thread.
Feist came out of hs as an end/backer kind of player. This spring he practiced on the line due to lack of bodies there. Anybody know where he's been practicing this week, and what we can expect from him this upcomin...
| Tiger Rant|| Offensive Line Questions - phison on 7/22/13 at 9:04 pm|
Given the two deep looks like this:
LT: Collins, Washington
LG: Alexander, Williford
C: Porter, Pocic
RG: Turner, Fanaika
RT: Hawkins, Edinburgh
At center, if Elliot Porter goes down who comes in to replace him?
Pocic because hes been running with the 2s? Or Williford slide over and ...
