Number 15 on that list, Reese Mooney, was originally committed to Houston for baseball. He may be looking for a place he can play two sports. His profile as a QB has been going up significantly.

LSU going to take 14 of the top 16 in LA next year. Book it.



I am sure that we will do great with the 2023 in-state class, but landing 14 of the top 16 would require us to literally go 14-for-14 with the kids who we have a chance at.


Arch is not coming here to sit behind Walker Howard. And Holstein transferred *high schools* to avoid sitting behind walker howard.


10-12 of the top 16 would be outstanding. 14 is unrealistic.


ETA: I've also heard that tackett curtis is almost definitely going to leave the state. That's one on which i hope we fight tooth and nail, but nevertheless makes the 14-of-16 prediction almost impossible.

That really sucks I remember his dad or uncle or something was posting a few years or year ago about him talking about him being a gym rat and young monster. I thought he was looking at his kid going to LSU what happened?

What is the story with curtis cause someone came on here that knew the family and he said that wasn't true.

Apparently the story was that the Many coaches are anti LSU, supposedly because they don’t recruit that high school and apparently his uncle is apart of the Many HS staff.

That’s what I roughly remember.

It’s a sad sad situation with Tackett, because we love his film, he is legit, speed is there. Anyhow even with many, many, attempts to just reset at Many High. They literally shooting the bird back . We have a few tricks up our sleeves , but definitely not looking good. Oh well, can’t get them all.

Iota you have your inside scoop… I have inside scoop as well!!! Well I can tell you guys that you have totally over blown the situation between LSU and Many/Tackett’s uncle.
That being said LSU recruitment so far of Tackett has been subpar. Tackett is a big priority to many programs OU(Grinch and Riley) Clemson(Venerables) Georgia Penn State USC etc they set up facetimes with him weekly. The relationship with him is NUMBER 1 and these schools make it happen.
LSU has not been active hardly at all.
He was finally contacted a week ago and Baker talked with him for 30 seconds.
That’s on them not his uncle.

Tackett is a great kid doesn’t care about the publicity, just wants to ball. He wants to find a school that gets what he is and wants to invest in him.

He has some great options…..but LSU better get going.

It's hard for me to believe that LSU is completely at fault here. Seems like Curtis and his coaches have made it difficult for LSU to recruit him like other schools. I'm not sure what their beef is, but that kind of attitude is only hurting their kids. You can't get mad at LSU's lack of recruiting when you won't even let them in the door.

Again you guys are totally off base. They are always welcomed, the phone calls are always answered, and there have never been any harsh words spoken between LSU and Curtis.

Their lack of effort with Tackett is on them.
The difference between the other schools and LSU is staggering.

Not on his uncle….it’s on them.

They have a huge need at LB and have a instate stud but they have been asleep at the wheel and other schools are way ahead making relationships

That’s the truth

Knowing how O and LSU's coaching staff recruits, that doesn't line up at all with their philosophy. I'm not saying you're wrong, but that's not at all how they operate with kids they are targeting.

Then he must not be who they are targeting.

That’s the way they feel, and that’s fine with them.
Baker has done a terrible job.

If they come late like they did with Bech and Langolis it won’t work with him.

Iota.. why don't you relay to your guy that Curtis is very open to communicating with LSU? If what he's saying is true, maybe whoever you know could get the word out..anything to help bc I think he's going to be a big talent in college.

What’s going on with Tackett Curtis. LSU seems to be slow playing him.

Zalance Heard is a must get. Playing along side Will Campbell this year should help. Why no LSU offer? Get off your arse O!! Texas has offered with others.

He has no interest in LSU, huge Bama fan. Ironically despite getting a ton of offers in the last year, he didnt get one from Bama.
