| Tiger Rant|| re: KJ Malone making strides & Matt Womack - TigerScribe on 9/17/14 at 1:30 pm|
The word from the staff is that Womack's agility and footwork are the particular reasons they like him. They offered him on the spot when he worked out at camp. Every indication is he is an OT and that his agility, especially for his size, is something the coaches really like....

I'm gonna say he read it when Russell Shepard was on the team and decided to never let Shep throw a pass in a game just to spite the Rant. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Both our lines are disappointing so far - TigerScribe on 9/7/14 at 12:02 pm|
Folks, I'm not saying the o-line doesn't have things to work on, but once again, we ran a lot out of one and two receiver sets with a fullback. When we do, the defense crowds the box and brings numbers to stop the run. When we go to three receiver sets and force the defense to stretch out and put in...

When you're considered the best RB out of high school since Adrian Peterson and a five-star who's ranked by many as the top prospect in the nation in your class, you generally tend to play right away....

We are struggling to entice big time playmakers to come to LSU?
2014-Founette, D. Williams, Dupre, Quinn, Harris, Washington
2015-Guice, Brossette, Ducre, Jazz Ferguson, good shot at Tyron Johnson, possibly Strickland
2016-Franks, Dee Anderson, Sullivan, in strong running for Patterson, White, ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Which offensive linemen are we still pursuing? - TigerScribe on 8/29/14 at 5:41 pm|
Agreed about Ivey probably being a longshot. Just mentioned him as a guy the staff is trying to make inroads with.
Another guy who might be someone the staff is still evaluating and that really intrigues me is Oshea Dugas. Not sure if he's being viewed more as an OT or DT. Maybe he is a guy who g...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Which offensive linemen are we still pursuing? - TigerScribe on 8/29/14 at 10:06 am|
Also, Martez Ivey out of Florida. And Womack is an OT. Miles and Grimes love his footwork and agility....
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Biggest need in this class? - TigerScribe on 8/27/14 at 12:27 pm|
For me, OT and DE are the most glaring needs. If Hawkins leaves after this year, the OTs are likely Pocic and Dormond. Maybe Boutte could shift out there if needed. Teheuma and Womack look like the backup OTs at this point.
At DE, Rasco, perhaps Hunter, and Maclin depart. Bower, Neal, Patterson,...

| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU guard Josh Gray & Jordan Mickey at @ Adidas Nations highlights - TigerScribe on 8/23/14 at 9:56 am|
Mickey showed again in that video that he is an explosive, fluid athlete, but all of his scoring was at or near the basket. If he wants to jump to the NBA, he needs to show he can score from the perimeter and handle the ball some in the open court. I'm hoping he's working on that part of his game. ...

[quote]Am I the only one that thinks this kid's game (Gray) resembles that of Chris Jackson's back in the day?[/quote]
After watching that, I have to agree. I'm not saying he'll be anywhere near as good as CJ was back in the day, but Gray's playing style, mannerisms and even from a distance, his ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: What Is The Deal With DT Recruiting? - TigerScribe on 8/18/14 at 3:08 pm|
LSU is stocked with young DTs. Lacouture, Thomas, Herron, Bain, Gilmore, Valentine, Godchaux, Trey L. That is eight, and only Thomas could conceivably leave, with a good season.
We don't need a big DT class for 2015,though one DT would be nice.
No matter LSU's DLU rep, it is still harder to r...

LSU isn't thin at DT. They are young at DT:

| Tiger Rant|| re: William Clapp on the D Line ? - TigerScribe on 8/11/14 at 1:34 pm|
Even with QT and Trey L injured, numbers aren't a big problem at DT (yet). Experience is. And moving Clapp there doesn't help that.
1st team - Lacouture and Herron
2nd team - Bain and Gilmore
3rd team - Godchaux and M. Johnson
And I haven't kept up on the latest surrounding QT tod...

| Tiger Rant|| re: do you ever see melvin jones moving back to D? - TigerScribe on 8/10/14 at 12:50 am|
The coaches like Ducre as an RB, although he may play FB some at first to get on the field. He was timed in the 4.4 range at camp.
I understand why some people project Upchurch as an eventual FB, but let's see what he does at receiver first.
Rasco is now at 247. He's not playing DT. ...
