A major position need for the 2015 LSU recruiting class was offensive linemen and coach Jeff Grimes hit a home run with the class that he brought in.

With Elliott Porter, La’el Collins and Evan Washington graduating, Grimes first two commitments for this class were current LSU offensive linemen Jerrald Hawkins and Vadal Alexander who decided to return to Baton Rouge next season instead of heading to the NFL Draft.

Not only was Grimes able to keep Hawkins and Alexander home in Baton Rouge for another season, he was also able to land some of the top offensive line prospects from the south including the top two offensive linemen from the state of Texas. Per ESPN:
quote:

LSU’s coaching staff closed out this class of linemen with a flourish. Within the past week, Grimes added a pair of ESPN 300 offensive linemen -- Chidi Valentine-Okeke and Toby Weathersby, a onetime Texas commitment who announced his decision on Wednesday -- to go along with previous commitments from guard Maea Teuhema and tackles Adrian Magee and George Brown Jr.

Teuhema -- ESPN’s No. 71 overall prospect and No. 2 guard -- is arguably the star of the group. ESPN rated Teuhema as the top offensive line prospect in Texas and Weathersby -- No. 149 overall and No. 9 at guard -- as No. 2.
Hats off to Jeff Grimes for adding quality offensive line depth in this years class.

And in case you are wondering what "#oderintdummetuant" in Grimes last tweet means, it is Latin for "let them hate, so long as they fear."

Awesome.
