Cal running back graduate transfer Tre Watson announced Sunday night that he will visit LSU on April 27th. Per SECCountry.com:
quote:

Watson, a 5-foot-11, 205-pound California native, was heavily recruited by West Coast and Pac-12 programs coming out of Centennial (Calif.) High School back in 2014. He chose the Bears over fellow in-state option UCLA.

Watson appeared in 37 games for Cal, starting in eight. Through his first three seasons, he amassed 1,297 yards and 8 touchdowns in addition to 348 yards and 5 touchdowns receiving. Watson played in only two contests as a senior last season before suffering a knee injury that cost him most of 2017. The NCAA granted him an extra year of eligibility.

These Tigers will have a blitzing defense and a sir air offense. Might be undefeated hosting Bama

Can we have their QB too?

Bring him in and let him compete. Worst case, we are keeping him off someone else’s roster.

You already have five backs on your roster, does this kid offer you something that the other five don't? O is about to screw Brosette for a one and done. There is no honor too the kids anymore, but everyone jumps on a kid for transferring.

O must put the best player on the field. Every player must do right for themselves. Emotional outbursts belong in the stands.

How is this screwing Brosette? Maybe in this entitled everything needs to be fair world we live in. But this is college football! Bring in as much depth as possible and let them compete for carries. Let the best man win even if it is a guy that is brand new over a guy that has been there for years. We signed 23 and O said he was going to fill the class with graduate transfers targeting RB and CB. I understand being pissed that if we wanted a RB and CB to make 24 and 25 it should've been Surtain and Joiner, but that didn't happen. I'm pissed too about it, but it is time to move onto this route and make the best of it and I think the two transfers we are getting or trying to get fit the bill.

How do you recruit a guy who has only been in a spread formation, if you don't know what kind of style your offense will be?

You being a USC fan and bitching about this? Why do you care?

You say, "He'll hand you the ball and you just run".

I really don't care. However, I'm stuck in LA, so why not follow the most overrated team in college football and see what the hype is all about. Just like I thought, nothing but a bunch of fanatics with no knowledge about the game. I can't wait until the season start so the whinny arse fans can melt all season. Down vote this too......LOL

Couldn't hurt and hey I like these grad transfers. It's like a junior sticking around for his senior year. He would be a nice complement to CEH. I think they know they have a good one in Clyde but with Curry being so young this guy could add some physicality and smarts to our back field. I wouldn't mind if LSU did this every year as long as they're a serious talent. We could probably add another CB next year or a couple of JUCO AA's. I like these additions myself. GT

Too bad Harold Joiner didn't want to come to LSU.

If they can add him depth is a fine thing to have.

You have depth. There are five backs on the roster.

Yes...you have five, all with very little experience..and they are still recruiting. This tells me they are not completely confident in the 5 they have.

This is what happens when your recruiting class is a fail

So according to you Chris Curry and Tae Provens who both have numerous SEC and other major offers at RB are "fails"? It is far more likely that you are one of the bashers on this board and have an agenda to whine and bitch no matter what occurs.

Yeah. You go get grad transfers to remedy the situation. The shame of it all.

Reel him in Coach O!!!! Go Tigers

The maturity of a grad student compliments the senior citizen coaching staff nicely

When CNS was building depth at MSU LSU and UA he did it with JUCO transfers.
