| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Pick class 1 or 2 - kevlanmei on 5/20/13 at 6:25 am|
Seriously, it's not even close. Give me Class #2 all day long. Now, if you add Cam Robinson and Malachi Dupre to Class #1 (in exchange for Quinn Kenny Young), it might be more of a toss-up....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Lorenzo Carter and LSU - kevlanmei on 5/19/13 at 7:02 am|
I agree completely with whodidthat. #1 thing is getting him to our campus. If so, Haley could then easily demonstrate the huge difference in how LSU uses its D-Ends in our scheme compared to a D-End's role in Bama's scheme (and Georgia's scheme, for that matter).
If that happens, I think our ch...

Well, if it's a recruit who has the same first name as a character on Lost, I would much, much rather it be Miles Garrett (ranked overall #10 recruit on 24/7) over Saeed Blacknall....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: A long time until signing day...But with our aggressive recruiting now ? - kevlanmei on 5/11/13 at 11:01 pm|
It's the same every year.
LSU (and I assume every college team) takes the following approach: take the 25 kids that:
- want to come to your school
- qualify academically
- you think can best benefit your program
It doesn't much matter if they are from Delhi, Louisiana or Delhi, India. If t...

I just love when "recruiting junkies" say stuff like "We need to stop wasting our staff's man-hours" on some kid or the other.
What kind of time are you thinking is involved here??? A 30 secoond text here and a 5 minute phone call there??? Do you really think this is going to prevent our staff ...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Why did David Jenkins transfer? - kevlanmei on 5/7/13 at 11:30 am|
While I won't try to dispute the possible personality conflict mentioned by folks above, there was a more specific situation that also led to Jenkins parting ways with LSU. And it had more to do with Chavis than anyone else.
You must fremember that during the 2012 Spring Drills how Chavis came o...
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU will be unstoppable - kevlanmei on 4/27/13 at 8:06 am|
We are also going to need our special teams to continue the great play from the last few seasons. And based on who we have remaining on our rosters after the losses from 2012, that is not a given....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: 247Composite #1 WSDE impressed by Mingo & 2 more DE going early - kevlanmei on 4/27/13 at 6:59 am|
Yep, it is all about the different defensive philosophies between Bama's 3-4 scheme and LSU's 4-3. LSU allows our D-Linemen the freedom to make plays (and develop as a playmaker). Bama's D-Linemen are pretty much there to occupy opposing O-Linemen so their linebackers can get to the football.
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Rickey Jefferson - kevlanmei on 4/15/13 at 2:21 pm|
Regardless of his last name, I am very excited about Jefferson's future at LSU. With the way Chavis runs his defense, it is a godsend to have a strong safety who has cover skills.
We saw the big difference between Brandon Taylor (in 2011) and Eric Reid (in 2012). Having Taylor ready and able to...

It is really difficult to decipher exactly where Williams is on LSU's tailback board. Hell, it isn't easy for me to determine how high I have him (out of the backs that LSU seems to be considering). Real nice player, but so are a number of other guys....

A taller, faster version of John Diarse. Like Diarse, Upchurch is a great kid from a top-notch family. Also like Diarse, he has great, great hands catching the football - even in traffic.
I know Dupre has better pure physical skills; and that Noil is electric with the ball in his hands; and tha...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Jermaine Roberts leaves us out of his top 5. - kevlanmei on 3/11/13 at 1:23 pm|
I agree 100%. If you find a way to remove the emotional side of being a fan (this board's meltdown over losing other DBs like Brown, Paris, and/or Hootie), and just focus on which DB would likely have the most positive effect on our program, I would take Adoree Jackson over any of them.

That's a bit slower than I had expected. I guess Mathieu is just one of those guys who doesn't slow down much when he puts the pads on. Because on the field of play, he is a freakin blur....

Reportedly, LSU would be his #1 choice to play his college football. But the bottom line is that at this time, he still doesn't have an LSU offer. I hope that gets rectified, as I think he has great, great potential....

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: What prospect are we most likely to lose out on? - kevlanmei on 2/23/13 at 7:08 am|
I say we are most likely to lose out on that 2nd-string linebacker from Farmerville. He really dreams of playing for LSU, but I am not sure we end up giving him an offer. After all, he is 5'6" and 145 pounds. Plus, he's pretty slow with a 5.5 laser-timed 40 yard dash. I guess we'll have to wait ...

1) [b]Fournette[/b] - LSU staff has put him as the only egg in our TB basket.
2) [b]Jackson[/b] - "Game Changer". Simple as that.
3) [b]Robinson[/b] - O-Line is the heart and soul of a football team.
4) [b]Clark[/b] - IMO, a better D-End prospect than Montgomery was coming out of high school.
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Unoffered Instate Talent - kevlanmei on 2/18/13 at 3:41 pm|
I think even more important is that Voorhies stated that he is wanting to play receiver at LSU. So if that is his desire, combined with the staff telling him that is where they want him to play - it just seems reasonable that he gets what he wants.
Plus, I think he can help us more at receiver t...
