| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Who believes hanner shipley is really being rucruited for the line? - TigerScribe on 3/15/14 at 11:06 am|
From what I've read recently, although Petitbon likes LSU, he likes Bama more. Not counting on him.
As for Shipley, I think they have him as a blocking tight end at first but will hold out the option of moving him to OT if he adds more weight. Miles and Cameron seem to like a big blocking TE in ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Cody Ford - Big Time OL....right here! - TigerScribe on 3/15/14 at 10:59 am|
He visited LSU recently, and the staff knows about him. Looks like they'll evaluate him during the spring and will want to observe him in camp. ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: getting this kid right , cam loves him - TigerScribe on 3/11/14 at 1:25 pm|
It would be nice if he grew another inch or two, but I don't think it's critical for him to be a good college QB, given his arm strength. What I'd like to know about is his accuracy and his ability to read coverages and make good decisions.
About his height, there have been plenty of QBs who perf...

In terms of body type and the question of whether he now projects at WR or RB, he kind of reminds me more of Josh Reed. ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Just watched Kirk Merritt's Highlights - TigerScribe on 3/5/14 at 1:25 pm|
A week ago, I wouldn't have thought of him as an RB, but at the Nike event last weekend, he weighed in at 206. I was surprised, as I had previously seen him in the 180 range. When I saw his weigh-in, I began to think he might be growing into an RB who can also line up wide in certain sets. ...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Collin Fountain - 2016 OG Barbe - TigerScribe on 2/19/14 at 1:38 pm|
Landing him and Willie Allen as 2016 OL would be awesome. Allen will be a tough battle with Bama, but with Grimes aboard, I think LSU will be able to build a good relationship with him, as well as Fountain....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: DBs in 2015 - TigerScribe on 2/17/14 at 6:56 pm|
Agreed with lsufanva. I think we grab two more CBs to go with Toliver and maybe one more safety to pair with Henry. For CB, I'm thinking it will come from Lewis, T. McFadden, Fields, Fitzpatrick, etc. Other instate candidates might include Raymond, Capers-Smith and Eugene. Maybe Christian Campbell a...

After the 2014 season, we will have these guys on the roster, assuming no other attrition:
Hawkins could conceivably leave after 2014, so there's a chance that list is down to seven. I think we may need to s...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: 2015 Louisiana class - WR - TigerScribe on 2/8/14 at 12:30 pm|
I've read in a few places that there was concern about Ferguson's speed and ability to get separation and that he might project as more of a receiving TE down the road. I admit I've not really seen much film on him, though.
As for receiver targets in state, there are a ton:
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Tyquincey Kilbourne 2013 Highlights - TigerScribe on 2/8/14 at 10:02 am|
Kilbourne doesn't have an offer yet. Not many in-state guys for 2015 do at this point. I think only Brosette, Guice, T. Johnson, Morgan, Lewis and Henry do, with Brosette and Henry as commitments, of course. I would imagine more will be handed out at Boys from the Boot and Junior Day, then more duri...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: OL - 2015 (Here comes the Big Uglies) - TigerScribe on 2/6/14 at 3:45 pm|
Good list. I'd also include Richie Petitbon, if you're extending the scope beyond the south.
To the poster who said Cody Ford committed to TCU recently; he did, but I imagine if LSU were interested in him and offered, he'd consider flipping....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: In State Defensive Prospects 2015 - TigerScribe on 2/6/14 at 3:43 pm|
Some names to track include:
DE - Isaiah Washington, Joe Anderson
DT - TD Moton, Jozie Milton, John Washington
LB - TyQuincey Kilbourne, Arthur McGinnis
CB - Xavier Lewis, Deshawn Capers-Smith, Malik Eugene
S - Kevin Henry, Hunter Dale
I'm sure there are more.

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: I'm nervous about both sides of the line of scrimmage - TigerScribe on 2/6/14 at 12:01 pm|
I think we're fine on both sides of the line for the 2014 season. But we need at least five and maybe six o-linemen in the 2015 class and maybe 3-4 DE's as well. I think we're ok at DT numbers wise. Here are some names I'm aware of for both in 2015:
OL - Thomas, Magee, Burguillos, Higby, Patterso...

Second, there are a ton of mock drafts out there projecting LSU guys all over the place. ...

My wish is:
5. Speaks or Trey L
And if we could fit him in, Porter
Who I think is more realistic is:
1. Dupre (maybe)
2. Kelly (if we can stave off FSU)
4. Trey L (kinda think Speaks sticks with Ole Miss)

Why do people assume Texas is doing nothing? Chances are likely that their next coach is currently preparing for a bowl game. Plus, it's the quiet period in recruiting, so it's not like they have to have anyone in place in the next few days. Once the bowls are done, they'll name a coach. ...

Somewhere, in an alternate universe, the NCAA concerns itself more with things like D.J. Fluker saying he got paid at Bama, or Ha Ha Clinton-Dix getting an inappropriate loan from an assistant coach, than they are about trying to regulate fan tweets to recruits. Oh well, back to the real world. ...
