Don't even think we are recruiting him that heavily. UF/Auburn battle at the moment but expect twists especially with OSU and Bama...
| SEC Recruiting|| re: Two of LA's best (Merritt and Chigbu) at A&M today! - lsufanva on 3/6/14 at 10:49 pm|
Chigbu is meaningless to LSU fans because he has no offer and likely doesn't get one. Merritt is gonna be tough to pull from us. Both are good prospects but Merritt is the prize. Chigbu just is in the wrong year but really it doesn't matter because he would slot low in the 14, 15 or 16 classes. Just...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Early Offers? - lsufanva on 3/6/14 at 10:42 pm|
Lebron is a bad comparison. Lebron was being hyped as the greatest hs prospect ever and as the top pick in the draft as a hs sophomore. Moses will be lucky if he's the #1 player in his class. Long, long way to go and plenty of time for other 17 kids to grow and improve.
Early offers are fine as ...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: When is LSU junior day? - lsufanva on 3/2/14 at 12:38 pm|
There will be a ton of visits over the next 6 weeks for spring practice and the spring game. I'm sure they will make one of those weekends a little event . They want close personal time with major targets and the jr days don't provide that....
| SEC Recruiting|| re: TD Moton at Aggie practice. - lsufanva on 3/1/14 at 11:46 pm|
Lot of bs in this one. Kid talks up TAM on twitter. Great. He also talked up MSU when he commited on a whim and then tried to deny it. He just this week was gushing about the Bama offer calling it a game changer. He has always been an LSU fan and talks them up as well. All this and TAM fans want to ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Shea Patterson (Calvary Baptist) - lsufanva on 3/1/14 at 11:33 pm|
First of all Patterson is not a LA boy. Hes a transplant from Texas that was basically recruited to come play. Secondly, why should we offer? He's not some can't miss guy at QB. That Belton kid from WM, he's a better talent as is the other big kid thst there is a thread about with rumors he was offe...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Linebacker Recruiting - Where do you think LSU could start recruiting elite LBs? - lsufanva on 3/1/14 at 2:16 pm|
Barajas likely commits to ND today.
Just scour the SE and Texas while looking everywhere for the top guys. Lots of quality LBs out there so just work and land a couple. We should be all over Malik Jefferson and should have been months ago. Not likely to get him but he's not the TAM lock most assu...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Revised Louisiana top 15 of 2015 - lsufanva on 3/1/14 at 2:13 pm|
The Tyron Johnson/TAM stuff was always overblown by Aggie sites. Members of the Warren Easton staff are their source and one is an TAM alum. They were pushing the kid to TAM and dad stepped in and put a halt to that. Completely different ballgame now.
I know this is a composite top 15 but I see i...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: LSU Targets SPARQ rating - lsufanva on 3/1/14 at 2:08 pm|
Not sure about the RB part but he's definitely a take. We wouldn't offer an instate kid this early if we weren't prepared to take him. I think he's probably a rb/wr hybrid. Kind of Cams Percy Harvin position...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: OL Recruiting 2015 Edition - lsufanva on 2/28/14 at 12:05 pm|
Agree but only see 1-2 spots that aren't needed
Need 1 qb
Need 2 pure rbs and 1 fb
Need at least 3 wrs
Need as many top end OL as we can get. At least 5
Rb and qb are easy
Wr will easily get 3. The issue is who and how many over 3 do we go
Don't think we will have issues getting 6-7 OL. The...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: LSU commit on Fox News - lsufanva on 2/26/14 at 10:48 am|
Probably the same day 1 as these kids that proclaim love for Saban and mention admiring him when he was at LSU. The kids were fricking under 10 when he was here. Its a manner of speaking. Relax on the kid. Who knows, he may have been an LSU fan all his life....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Loaded at DBU, but this could help build the North Carolina pipeline. - lsufanva on 2/26/14 at 10:44 am|
A NC pipeline would be great but near impossible to get. Too many school between us and there and already quite a few programs with set in hooks. USCe, Clemson and UF all are very well established in the recruiting hotbeds in NC. I'd be happy getting a kid or 2 every couple of years. They grow DL on...
| SEC Recruiting|| re: So guess who is now in love with aggy and has a sister already enrolled there? - lsufanva on 2/24/14 at 10:31 pm|
Kid will visit any school he wants and likely a lot of them before its over. The key is that he will sign with LSU.
I think he will play LB in college. No need wasting his speed and athleticism at DE. Hes not gonna be 270 and a freak like Clowney. Think Christian Miller with elite speed and athl...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Deshawn Capers Smith just committed to Texas A&M - lsufanva on 2/24/14 at 8:33 pm|
This isn't a big deal at all. We are not and never were gonna offer Capers Smith. Hes a CB in college and to those who haven't noticed, our CB board is pretty stacked with the #1 CB in the nation committed, the #1 instate CB was and will be again committed and we are right at the top for another FL ...
| SEC Recruiting|| re: Ole Miss tied for 1st in 2016 commits(with TN) - lsufanva on 2/21/14 at 10:39 pm|
What the LSU guys have posted about our 2 is true. Alexander is already a 5* on scout and Sullivan is a monster wr. Doesnt take away from OM or UT groups. We shall see in about 6 years how they pan out.
LSU will likely add a couple more top 5-10 at their position for 16 by summer. Loaded class i...

Also the people that pay will know the list and not asking on here. Dont get me wrong, I don't have a huge issue with lists being brought over and some info being brought over because most of it is meaningless and basic. That said, there are some things on paysites that shouldn't be brou...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Pine ATH Derrick Dillon visiting A&M this Sunday - lsufanva on 2/20/14 at 10:23 pm|
Prefers offense and likely why we don't land him. Hope the athlete pitch works but he isn't one that isn't open to leaving the state. Just have to see what he buys and from who. Fantastic player...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Top target for 2015 - lsufanva on 2/17/14 at 8:00 pm|
Instate-Tillery or Guice imo. Tillery obviously because of our need at OT. Guice because I think he's the top prospect in the stste
OOS-just based on current targets realistic or not
Burrell or Richmond because we need OTs. Both are longshots at best. ...

| SEC Recruiting|| re: Ex TN Great Tee Martin on Jalen Hurd - lsufanva on 2/17/14 at 6:29 pm|
Martin is a wr coach and one of the top recruiters in the country. That doesn't make him an expert on Hurd or Tennessee kids in general but you can bet he evaluated him. Its his opinion. We all have them and voice them. We will find out who's correct most of the time...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: DBs in 2015 - lsufanva on 2/17/14 at 4:39 pm|
My current thinking is 4-5 total. At least 3 cbs and Henry and maybe 1 more S. Depends on numbers at other spots most likely. From what I've seen stated
That's 17-21 right there with TE, LB, DB and a LS left. If the low end then I think we are good everywhere...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Tyron Johnson tweet.... - lsufanva on 2/16/14 at 9:21 am|
Agree but we have to offer the kids first. I'm puzzled with the lack of instate offers for 15 yesterday. Theyll come but I expected more offers for 15. We offered more 16 kids than 15...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Your 2015 LSU signing class - lsufanva on 2/14/14 at 3:07 pm|
Agree with the last paragraph. These lists are just shots in the dark. Who knows how it will turn out. Last year at this time we thought it was all figured out aside from maybe 5-6 spots and we were off.
As for Vahe, he reaffirmed to Texas. Says the Teuhemas decision doesn't affect him and Texas...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Who are the in state "must gets" for 2015? - lsufanva on 2/13/14 at 8:52 pm|
Dreaux nailed it. Imo there are no "must gets" instate. None of these kids are elite talents including Tyron Johnson. Also necer consider any kid must get period. Fournette was as close to it as you'll see because of the way we mortgaged the position for him. Every kid can be replaced by someone who...

Could be a case where hea moving up to high school as an eighth grader. Both articles I've seen clearly state '19. The kid at Trinity(Tolivers school) that we offered is a rising freshman and he's '18.
Add Kelvin Taylor to the prior to high school recruitments. Kid had over 1000 as an 8th grader...

Don't mind at all Topisaw. :cheers:
I didn't touch on Quinn because he is so advanced. His body and skillset are close to where they're gonna end up. That said, I think his current progress all around is where most of the top wrs want to get. Hes that far ahead of most developmentally. He is so ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Boys Of The Boot Attendees - Saturday 2/15 - lsufanva on 2/13/14 at 7:21 am|
Most of the top OL in the state will be there. Tillery isn't because he's not coming here. Not a great year for OL or at least not a year where any are must takes outside of Tillery. We will likely take a couple of them eventually but Grimes is gonna work the nation first. Maybe 1-2 get offered by s...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: 2014 Class - Commit with most upside - lsufanva on 2/12/14 at 9:45 pm|
Depends on how you view upside but I, as most, go by pure natural talent vs current progress. Not quite ready to proclaim who has the most because a few have quite a bit.
Harris-he's basically all upside. Hes extrenely raw and his tools are plentiful. Could be a star, could be a what if
