I know I'm not a coach or @ practice, but I don't see why Beckwith shouldn't get a 2nd look @ MLB during the spring. Body type wise he looks a lot more like a prototypical MLB, not DE. Would he be able to pass Rasco, Hunter, Allen or even Bower?? Not likely - much more probable he passes Welter, or...

Man, I'd love it, but I just don't see us getting Hootie & Jamal with Voorhies, Battle & Paris committed (I know Paris wants to play CB, but it seems consensus on the board that he moves to safety). That's 4 - if not 5 - top flight safeties in one class. Ain't happening.
If Hootie bolts, Jamal wo...

I posted it in the other thread. Father & son right next to me in Section 122 told me that. Son - looked about 12 or 13 - said he goes to school w/ Dell's son & that's what Dell's son told him.
Any P. I.'s out there that know if Dell has a son that age?

Can one of the experts verify this?...

Are the dates on those 247 crystal ball predictions accurate? B/c that shows that the last 4 predictions have been made for Bama. Should that be a concern? (I may be reading that wrong, but all of those predictions look to be in order of date, starting in March and ending w/ the Barton Simmons pr...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: 2014 DL Prospects - billyholawboy on 9/29/13 at 3:39 pm|
I'm usually not a big juco guy, but if there is a good chance that both Ego & Freak are going pro, then we need to go get a top juco DT. Heck - even if only one of those leave, we're still thin even if QT steps up.
And yes, I know Gilmore & Bain & Lacoture are there, but I think a top 3 juco DT...

He'd be the Tharold "I know I'm not getting drafted high, but I need the $" Simon exception to all of the (non running back) early exits we had. I would be floored if he left, unless he really shows out against UF and Bama's D line, which I hope he proves me wrong, but I don't see happening. I thi...

Lord forgive me as this may come off negatiger-ish, but I'm not throwing out the dancing 'nanas for that DT group. By NO MEANS am I saying they're subpar or will be the weak link, but I don't think that group looks dominant. Part of that is probably attributable to the studs (i. e. top 3 rounders) w...

More than just a few posters, mainly on the recruiting board when discussing our potential incoming WR's and how much they'll see the field after OBJ and J. Landry leave early.
To me, it makes about as much sense as Chris Faulk leaving early after the knee injury. Unless their #'s improve dram...

I've read where multiple posters believe there is a good/decent chance that both #3 & #80 bolt after their junior campaign. My questions are as follows:
1) what have they shown on their first two years to warrant belief they could crack the top 3 rounds?
2) Is J. Landry/family in a dire financia...
