Excuse me, going into 2018 with the only experienced players being Brossette and Ducre

@STRIPES

Fournette will be gone in 2017. Moses will be playing LB. Guice will be a junior and Williams a senior. In all likelihood, we would be only coming back with Brossette and Ducre as seasoned players for 2017.

This guy is only going into his junior year so it's still 2 years away before we even see him at his high school peak. He's tearing it up right now and reminds me a bit of the Jovon Robinson guy (5 star JUCO RB) that Auburn picked up.

So many good RBs we are in on 2017. Toneil Carter, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and this guy could be a great RB class.

LSU is the closest major university to Clinton, Ms, no?

Lets see. LSU has Fournette & Williams as Sophs. Then there is
Ducre, Guice, & Brossette coming in as Freshmen. Then there is Dylan Moses who may play RB as well and he is already committed for the 2017 class. Now after looking at Cam Akers highlights I have to say I would love to have him but truthfully he better be ready to Redshirt and see limited acton until he is a Sophomore.

Looks okay. His competition is bad. Will be good in SEC, but not Barry sanders/Herschel walker-esque

WOW!! This kid has the moves of Barry Sanders and the power, toughness and speed to the corner of Hershel Walker. BOOK IT He'll be a great one. Hope the Tigers can land him.

looks like he runs a little too tall for a RB in the sec... i just dont see the low center of gravity for RB... I would make him a safety... But what do I know..
