LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda, outside linebacker coach Dennis Johnson, and General Manager Austin Thomas all visited elite five-star defensive tackle Marvin Wilson on Saturday.


The 6-4, 329-pound prospect from Houston, TX, is the No. 1 defensive tackle in the country and the No. 2 overall prospect for the class of 2017, according to Rivals.

LSU, Florida State and Ohio State are the 3 schools in the hunt to land Wilson on Signing Day.

We might not be in the top schools gunning for a championship but being on Aranda's D is ticket to the NFL. These kids may be starting to get that.

Wasn't Rashard Lawrence five star last year? Adding this guy to the mix...this is getting scary for our opponents. I sure hope they get him

Now let's get Mathis in here and win a championship, what a fool Allen is for turning on LSU. Sad it really is sad, he could have been a great Tiger and added to this championship defense. Home town boys pay attention, Aranda is the man and who knows who your next coach will be at Bama. LSU is much more stable at the moment. Aranda will win at least 1 championship before he leaves. I really believe with coach O, Aranda, and Canada this team will soar. Wow this defense is going to be stacked and very tough to beat. Very very tough, find a weakness now I dare you. All we need now is to stack that OT position get a couple of great RBs next year and keep plugging away at the QB position, adding quality depth everywhere, and it's a wrap folks we will have a championship.

Davon leaving early opens a slot for this kid to compete for. He is an animal that still has growing room. He is going to be a great one.

"General Manager Austin Thomas". Why?

You are allowed 9 (soon to be 10) assistant coaches to go out on the road. If one of the coach spots is unfilled or there is another reason one of the 9 cant go out, LSU can replace him with another staffer that can go out. More and more schools are doing this when the opp presents itself.

If we only land one remaining target, Marvin is the one! A three year starter and major impact player imo! Of course, I feel we will get the majority of our remaining recruits. And they are all impact players as well! Come join the family guys!
