| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Domino effect. Who would be the perfect first domino? When and why? - samuellewis1965 on 7/12/13 at 5:15 am|
Harris, as a well-spoken QB,
might be a catalyst for some WR to commit.
The QB and WRs could then recruit the O line, especially Cam Rob.
Several OOS prospects are likely to commit soon, anyway.
By August 1, LSU could have 20 firm commits.
CamRob, LF, and Speedy might wait until 2014 to m...

2 LBs: Donnie Alexander (OLB) and Glifton Garrett (ILB).
4 DL: Clark (true DE), Godchaux (probable DT), Willis (probable DT), and Garrald McDowell (probable DT).

I don't think LSU takes a second RB in this class unless they steal a top-shelf prospect who is already committed to another program.
However, in Cam Cameron's offense, I can see Jeryl Brazil and Speedy Noil lining up in multiple positions. If Jeryl can bulk up to 195-200 pounds without losing sp...

Mr. Moses, please follow the lead of the college game. 3 years and done. For both high school and college.
It's not that difficult for Dylan to graduate AFTER three years of high school if there's a plan in place. He WILL be ready in 2016. And then in 2019 he could turn pro.
He could shave off...

I suspect LaTech and ULL will offer him this summer. Outside of the Louisiana, my guess is that Texas Tech and some other Big 12 schools are close to offering scholarships.

"There is a rumbling [b]IN THE FAR OFF DISTANCE[/b]"
This reminds me of the Jimmy/Gino "scoop" last summer about Greg Gilmore being a silent commitment that folks disputed.
Gilmore gave his verbal commitment on November 8. Thus several months of waiting for that rumble to BOOM (or KABOOM).
