If Clapp comes back (most likely) and Deculus gets some cross training at Center in the Spring, we'll be OK at that position with Smith in the fold.

When your stated goal is to beef up the OL/DL and you go out and get the #1 rated OC in the nation as well as 2 top JC linemen, you have achieved your goal. Period.

Can’t wait to see this guy play in Death Valley. He’s got a killer instinct and nasty mean streak. Watch his films. It’s like having a linebacker on the O line.

He's rep'n the LSU shirt so can't be liking him much. I'm sure he loves his kid more so than any college, I know I would. With the exception of maybe bama, not sure I would let my kid go there. Not if he had an LSU offer for sure.

Pontotoc not far from Oxford or Starkville. Good signing for Tigers. Probably killing his dad to be wearing LSU gear after years of likely pulling for State or Ole Miss

How do you know that his dad has not been an LSU fan for years?
