Four-star LSU offensive guard commit Chasen Hines reaffirmed his verbal pledge to the Tigers Sunday and said that he will be switching positions to play defensive line.

Hines, a 6-3, 340-pound prospect from Marshall, TX originally committed to LSU on March 19. Many believed that his announcement would be a de-commitment after receiving offers from Texas to play offense and defense earlier in the weekend.

Glad to see he is keeping his word. Young man mature enough to man up.

DL or OL it matters not. We need a bunch of each.

DL is a major need so I'm good. I said in another thread we have 15 DB's on roster we can not sign 2 more and get some OL recruits. If reports are true the 1 juco guy is all LSU and 3 more would be a great class. Sometimes you need to recruit needs and not some awesome DB.

Yeah. Coach Raymond is awesome but he needs to ease up and let us get some beef up front or his DB's will not make any difference.

Thank you Chasen...we'll get all of this sorted out. So, that gives us 5 DT's this class? Time to add OL.
