Former LSU running back Jacob Hester doesn't seem to care too much about high school prospect rankings but can recognize that LSU is putting together a special recruiting class for 2016.


The Shreveport, La. native attended Evangel HS and was rated as a two-star fullback by Rivals at the time and three-star running back by 247Sports.

Hester went on to have an outstanding four year career at LSU and was a part of the Tigers' 2007 BCS National Championship team. He went on to play in the NFL for five seasons after graduating from LSU.

You mean "an All Time class", Jacob?

Yeah, he had offers... He was committed to Texas at one point. Think I remember seeing a longhorn tattoo on him at the 2003 Cotton bowl. I didn't like him a whole lot at that point.

What had he been up to since leaving the NFL? Has he started coaching anywhere? I always liked Hester back at LSU.

Hester might have been a 2 star but he had offers from all the big boys. Coaches knew he was going to be a special player.

Seems like i remember Hester's 2 star eval is the only thing that kept us from a #1 class that year.
