It's a dumb thread in its own right, but it's also an easy topic to answer. K-Faulk's "All Eyes on 3" shaved into the back of his dome. No contest....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: 2015 PF Elijah Thomas - b rod lsu on 8/14/14 at 8:32 am|
I'm no expert, but I don't think there's a lot to that.
I actually think the two Cali schools stronger players for Sampson than anyone else on that list outside of LSU, and Thomas is wide open. Also, Butch Pierre and Ok St seemingly offer 1500 kids each year....

[quote]The only thing that would scare me is could Johnny adapt from a fast-paced offense like we should have this year with the athletes we have on this roster to a more physical offense when our top 3 bigs would be Thomas, Dickerson and second-year Elbert?[/quote]

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: 2015 PF Elijah Thomas - b rod lsu on 8/14/14 at 6:38 am|
I've always been negative about our chances with Thomas, but I think that has more to do with the fact that I really like his game as much as anyone in that class and I don't want to get my hopes too high. He's got that high school Chris Webber vibe.
He and Simmons would be great together. Th...

With Daddy Dale, it all started with getting that one premier guy (Rudy Macklin) to change the perception of the program. It was the spark that caught fire. I'm not sure if the culture of 1-and-done's has changed the way that works, but this is definitely the guy for Johnny should it all unfold ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Jacob Evans has an offer from LSU - b rod lsu on 8/3/14 at 11:24 am|
We are currently in great position for 2 of the top guards in the country in Blakeney and Sampson. If we are lucky, we end up in a position where we don't have room for Evans. Alot of things will show themselves in the fall signing period....

Of the group we continually talk about, who is for certain signing in the fall and spring?
I know Simmons and Thomas are signing in November, and Sampson is signing in the spring. Do we have any definitive plans for Blakeneny and Dickerson, or either of the Aussies?...

What's the word on the Ramsey kid that the Tribe got in return? Looking at it briefly, it looks as if this season was the first that he has been able to put it all together of sorts. What's the ceiling for this guy?
Also, Trey, Asdrubal has got to be gone now right?...

[quote]Little surprised to see no UNC in his top 7. His top 3 are Louisville, UK, and LSU IMO. Really hoping the opportunity to play with Simmons will play a deciding factor for Blakeney.[/quote]
I agree with all of that. We also have very little depth at the guard spot, so that's gotta be ent...

I've heard him mention Louisville and Kentucky before, so I'm not surprised there. FSU has ACC appeal, close proximity and a good HC, so that's also not surprising. We have recruited him harder than anyone (by his own account), so I'd venture to say that's your top 4 in no particular order. Ken...
