Can't get a better DC than Chavis.

Kid does have a lot of potential. Who knows, the Chief loves to call hybrid schemes when certain positions are deep so if this kid gains 40lbs and an inch of height he might find himself in a Mongo type role on third down passing situations. In other words, LSU's staff has a way of getting guys like this on the field and putting them in great spots to make impacts early.

I hope the kid breaks the Bagman and comes to Louisiana for the gumbo !

LSU is looking at a couple more NC's over the next 3 to 4 years. All of the pieces are in place now.

This is good news but it's still a long way off. Hopefully he does commit at some point and signs on signing day. We had probably the best class ever for 2014, but we still didn't gain any ground on Alabama and lost a couple of key in-state recruits to them. We won't catch them if we continue to let these top Louisiana recruits get away, especially to them.

geaux TIGERS!!!
