We need the Frank Wilsons and Burton Burns, who know the New Orleans hood and understand it, to lock down recruiting, in New Orleans. Recruiting is, largely, about relationships. The biggest Louisiana sell to a New Orleans kid is New Orleans and their proximity to it and family. Get an LSU football float in the Endymion and Zulu parade, every year and see how many New Orleans recruit stay with LSU.

Don’t we have the number 1 linemen in the country committed this year. I can’t believe he doesn’t want to join him on what could be the best line in the country. Hopefully this young man will like our Defensive coordinator and line Coach once named. I’m sure they will reach back to him but Saban likely taking advantage of our situation. At any rate, this young man will have more calls not less with his de commitment. He will actually have more attention and distractions to accomplish the things he says he wants to do. Then again, maybe attention is what he and his family want.

We have no one else to blame but ourselves and the media for creating these high school celebrities. Imagine being 16 and grown men are commenting on your every post practically begging you to go to their favorite schools. Ceremonies and presentations to put a fricking hat on your head that literally means nothing. It is time to stop this madness. I'm tired of kids committing 2 and 3 times to maximize their attention. I for one will only tune into recruiting for two days out of the year. When pen meets paper and the games are done being played. That is the only time they deserve any attention, when they have actually committed to the team.

The only other time I time in to recruiting is around December to see who's coming as an early enrollee. Those guys are usually able to produce early because they were there for spring ball.

Better he decompress now than the day before signing day. We only want players who want to be at LSU. Let this young man take a couple of months to clear his head, and ther will be a scholarship waiting for him....maybe...

In an age where players “opt out” at halftime of a Bowl Game the use of the word “commitment” is laughable.

Son, if you honestly want to focus on school and getting your body back healthy, re-opening your recruitment is going to give you LESS time to focus on those things, not more.

I'm sure the Dodge dealerships in Baton Rouge, New Orleans or elsewhere in Louisiana have Dodge Chargers too. Get the Louisiana Boys some Chargers a la Bama!

This is the reason I quit following recruiting 2 or 3 years ago.

I honestly laugh whenever someone says ‘boom’ anymore. There is no such thing as a commitment. Has been that way for several years. I’ll save any excitement for after signing day, then I’ll take a look at who we had sign, and research them then.

All one has to do is look at the backgrounds of some of these kids. Lets be honest and address the elephant in the room. Kids that grow up in the ghetto have hard lives. Im not being a racist. Im black. They come from broken homes, poerty and their only loyalty is that to a parent or parents or friends/gangs. They dont know or understand what a committment is. Some do. Some dont. And the bottom line is they young. Kids make impulsive decisions. Then for whatever reason they change their mind. So be it. Maybe our coaches need to consider this more when recruiting kids. Only time I get excited is when these kids suit up in LSU colors and play as hard as they can. Committments to play football is turning into a joke
