My main fear is how well we can defend the run. Period. Three teams in particular:
I think that is going to be the #1 factor in determining where we stack up at the end of the season.
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Shreveport QB prospects - kevlanmei on 7/30/14 at 8:01 pm|
Since other non-Shreveport boys have been listed, when it came to pure QB ability - I doubt many were any more blessed than Bob Lane. Coming out of Neville in 1977, he was rated as the:
- #3 QB in the country
- #4 safety in the country
- #4 shortstop in the country
He signed with LSU, but qui...

As mentioned above, the name you are looking for is James Harris. And I admit I do not know Harris' life biography, so perhaps he was born in Shreveport. I do not know.
But he played his high school ball at Carroll. This I know as fact, because he was idolized on the southside of town when I w...

And no one in this thread has even mentioned the main reason this is traitorous:
Remember that Blackwell came to LSU as a D-Lineman. And after a couple of years, he was mired deep in the depth chart. Had he stayed there, he would have likely ended up a career backup.
But Miles recognized tha...

Saying that Gibson isn't important (or that he might have lost interest in LSU) because of Jennings, Harris, and/or Rettig is a little silly.
It's like saying that Daylon Mack isn't really so desirable because we have 6 freshmen DTs that will be ahead of him - like Bain, Gilmore, Herron, Lealaima...

If the o-line recruiting goes like I see it possibly unfolding, LSU could end up with 6 o-line signees for 2015 - none of them from Louisiana.
It's a brave new world......

Well, the two current OOS commits are pretty huge gets.
Of the guys not currently committed to LSU, I would go with:

I don't think 2007 was much better (with regards to available WRs).
We had just lost our two 2006 starters ([b]Bowe[/b] and [b]Davis[/b], who were both 1st Round NFL draft picks). I do acknowledge that [b]Doucet[/b] was more proven as the lone returnee than [b]Dural[/b] is for 2014.

I assure you there is no one on LSU's roster or recruiting radar that would deter Tony Brown. I do not claim to know all the reasons behind his choice of Bama, but I guarantee that "fear of competition" was not one of them....

Torshiro Davis "reportedly" told the LSU staff that he was still solid to us [b]the very night before NSD[/b] - and proceeded to sign with the Longhorns the very next day. Again "reportedly", he had known all along that we wasn't gonna sign with LSU.
If all that actually happened, then I would c...

While I agree that LSU should rethink bringing Gamble in with this class, a more accurate description of his high school duties is:
- Kick Offs
- Long FGs
It's just that his high school hasn't encountered a long FG situation this season. Note that in the national kicker's camp this past Summer...
